Craig and Diana – Wedding Photography Bloomingdale Golf Club
We had a great experience with Diana and Craig photographing their engagement session around Chicago downtown, some time last year.
Time goes by fast and here we are on the wedding day.
We met both Diana at their home to photograph them getting ready. The bridesmaids and flower girls were also there getting dressed with Diana. The bride wore a traditional white wedding dress and held a violet and white rose bouquet. The bridesmaids wore deep purple dresses with the exception of one of Diana’s friends who wore a bright teal dress that complimented the purple very nicely.
I went with Craig to the hotel near Bloomingdale where his friends were waiting for him and getting ready. Claudia stayed behind to continue photographing the girls getting ready at the home. When I arrived at the hotel, the groomsmen wore traditional tuxedos with blue ties and socks. While we were waiting for the ladies, we had some fun with the guys around the hotel property.
Craig and Diana had their first look at the Bloomingdale Golf Club and then we went with their friends and family for a quick photo session around the golf course. Wedding Photography at the Bloomingdale Golf Club always looks nice at this location. The reason for this is that Bloomingdale Golf Club offers a lot of different places to explore, which is a great way to mix up the photo session. The bridal party was a lot of fun to photograph and hang out with!
Unfortunately, we could not have an outdoor ceremony because the rain was coming, so the hotel setup a big white tent for all of us to sit under. The officiant was one of Craig’s friends who was very funny Italian type and gave a relaxed vibe to the entire celebration. The couple had an exchange of vows as well as a sand ceremony during this time.
When the ceremony was finished, it was time for family portraits at the Bloomingdale venue, then the cocktail party started at 6pm where there were speeches, cut cutting, dinner, and dancing! The cake sat on top of a teal tablecloth and was white with black ribbons at each of the cake’s bases. Purple flowers decorated each of the guest’s tables and we took one final photo of the bridal party and the newly weds sitting at their table before the party started.
