Elements At Water Street Wedding

Today’s post is about Michelle and Dan’s wedding at Elements at Water Street

These two met since the high school and college years, working in a restaurant. I had the pleasure of taking their engagement photos at the Fabyan Park. Their fury baby Myley was part of the session and made it fun! 

We started at Michelle’s house while the bride and bridesmaids were getting ready.

At their house, Dan was getting ready and had some fun shots including Myley.

Before we headed to the ceremony I wanted to get a last shot with Michelle in backyard and incorporate a beautiful tree in the background. The story is that Michelle planted that tree when she was little.

There’s something about a classic, formal wedding inside of a church that gets me every time. It just feels so pure and cinematic. Our Lady of Mercy in Aurora offered exact that feeling.

I love the pews, the pulpit, the architecture, and the stained glass windows.  The bride and groom were declared husband and wife and the wedding ceremony was done.  The bridal party got into the limo and went to Naperville Riverwalk for the portrait session. Millenium Carillion was our first stop.

Since we were by The Naperville Riverwalk, we wanted to make sure we took advantage of  the river, wooden bridge  and  of  course  the  Quary  Lake.Walking by the river walk The Naperville river walk bridal party on Naperville Michelle playing with veil Quarry Lake Naperville group photo by the Quary lake
