Here is, what I am sure you have all been waiting for, the 2nd sneak peak from Emily and Sean’s wedding. The ceremony at First United Methodist Church in Downers Grove, Il was beautiful.
The officiant for the ceremony was Reverend Nick, who had previously ministered at First United Methodist Church and knew Emily and Sean quite well. This familiarity brought a sense of ease that allowed for a more relaxed feel to the ceremony.
After the ceremony, we took some time to do formal photos with the wedding party and family members. It was quite nice to see everyone come together for such a joyous occasion.
From the church, it was off to the Katherine Legge Memorial Lodge in Hinsdale, IL for the reception. The Katherine Legge Memorial Lodge holds a special place in my heart. When Emily and Sean told me they would be having their reception there, I was immediately looking forward to being there again for a wedding. I knew they would enjoy the venue very much and that we would have a lot of fun during their reception. Emily and Sean proceeded to cut the wedding cake right away at the reception.
As everyone was finishing up dinner, I noticed that the bride, the mother of the bride, and the mother of the groom had all selected shoes that matched for the reception. All three stepped outside with me so we could capture this little detail that highlights Emily’s personality so well.
After dinner and the cake, everyone headed upstairs to the dance floor and continued to enjoy themselves. Emily and Sean had their first dance together as a married couple and were soon joined on the dance floor by other wedding party members.
As the dancing wound down, Emily and Sean prepared to leave Katherine Legge Memorial Lodge to head back to their hotel for some much needed rest before their honeymoon in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Please join me in congratulating Emily and Sean on their wedding!
