Susan & Patrick's Winter Wonderland Wedding

December 13th was anything but cold and chilly!  The theme of Susan and Patrick's wedding was, "Winter Wonderland" - the decor and even Susan's bouquet matched the theme perfectly, the weather was unusually warm for a December date, but it made taking photos outside so much fun!  We loved shooting the first look in Patrick's childhood home on the Northwest side of Chicago, then traveling to a friends house who had decorated it beautifully for the holidays.  A very sweet couple and a very fun party ensued into the night!  Congratulations again Susan and Patrick.  Read more below and see some of our favorite photos from the day.

"It was a great day - who knew a Winter Wonderland Wedding would have temps in the upper 40's? There were many fun surprises that day - from our first look to how the room was decorated at GHL. We had an idea of it, but to walk in and see it was so amazing. The day is almost hard to describe - we would love to go back in time and be a guest at our wedding to get to see and experience everything because we felt that it just flew by. We had some of the food and think that we saw everyone - but we just cannot remember everything."

“What we do remember is that the ceremony my uncle wrote was beautiful. The crowd was all looking at us and you could see in there faces that they were enjoying everything. I think that in every picture we were smiling ear to ear. The food that we got to eat was delicious and the drinks and signature cocktails were SWEET. From sushi to Penguin cookies, it was awesome.”

"We did our wedding our way. This was not a traditional experience by any means, and that suited us well, as we do not see ourselves as being all that traditional either. We wanted a night that we would have enjoyed and that is what we gave to everyone. So far, the feedback has been great, and we look forward to really going through all of the pictures and reliving that evening again and again."

"Thanks to the staff at GHL. You were all great to work with and we appreciate all of the efforts that you put in to take and make our pictures. From the candids to the photobooth, we will have a beautiful record of our wedding. Thank you."

Thanks to all the vendors!
