We are swooning over this colorful Chicago wedding! Bold and beautiful colors throughout Erin and Danny’s wedding day, perfect for color lovers. Enjoy this gorgeous wedding!
Okay, where do I even begin with this breathtaking Chicago wedding?! Danny and Erin are ‘that’ couple who have been in love for so long! They met in Cancun, Mexico in 2007, and it’s apparent that they both just have been head over heals in love since. As a photographer, getting to watch their interactions throughout the day made me smile. Not only do they just glow when they are around one another, they make others around them light up as well. The bridal party was one of my absolute favorites to work with.
Well, one of my favorite parts of the day is getting to see the bride put on her dress!!!! I honestly can’t wait at every wedding. Erin had a BEAUTIFUL wedding gown, Austin, by Watters! She accented her dress with a veil from David’s Bridal, stunning teal heals with some bling (Chelsea Crew), and an array of colorful flowers by Dekalb florist. The teal accents from the shoes, the ties, the bridesmaid’s dresses, flowers, etc. made for some fun detail photos. Their rings are from Altobello in Wheaton, Illinois, hair and makeup done by Elle Salon in Elgin, Illinois, and the men’s tuxes were Vera Wang slim fit from Men’s Wearhouse.
The venue, Mora Farm in Waterman, Illinois, is one of the best venues. I cannot say enough good things about this venue. The staff is so kind & the location is laid back and out in the country-not something you’d think of when you think Chicago. I loved that the ceremony was outside under a beautiful weeping willow and custom DIY ribbon backdrop. The decorations were to die for. Decorations were DIY GWS ideas! Erin’s mom did the glitter banners and ALL the decorations (even the light up Erin & Dan sign).
As the sun set, there was a beautiful lightning storm with fields full of lighting bugs. When the storm passed, Danny and Erin did a sparkler exit. I love when couples put extra effort into their wedding day to make their photos special! – Meredith Washburn Photography
