Photographs from a winter wedding I shot in Tinley Park and Naperville. The wedding happened in Tinley Park and from there we moved to Meson Sabika in Naperville. From the Meson Sabika website….”Built in 1847, Meson Sabika is a Georgian-style mansion specializing in Spanish cuisine. The mansion houses eight dining rooms, all of which are available for private parties. Each dining room has its own individual style and ambiance from the Victorian romance to a Spanish courtyard garden.” The service was great and speedy and the private room for the wedding party was small, warm and intimate. The food was served tapas style with everyone at the table sharing….the food was delicious.
The curtains form a nice entryway to the room which is great for photographs. Since it was cold outside the only room we had available for photos was this one and the entryway to the restaurant.
This is the entryway to the reception site and restaurant. Everyone enters through the same door. The staircase and entryway are small reflecting their history…..
The wedding itself took place at St. Julie Billiart Catholic Church in Tinley Park. The church had an open circular design with skylights.
The bride and groom were actually already married and going through the ceremony formally in a church…..
This wedding goer had his own agenda which I appreciated…..
Outdoor photo opportunites were rare and we only had a few minutes to shoot in the back of the church. This ended up being our only time for outdoor photo opportunities….The light was really beautiful for a few minutes…..
Before the wedding, the bride got ready with the help of her mom and her bridesmaid….
