Irish Wedding in Cary IL
Mat and Cherry had their beautiful wedding at Challet Hill Golf Course in Cary IL
Newly weds Cheri and Matt had a traditional Irish wedding in North West suburbs of Chicago.
They first had their engagement photos in Cheri’s backyard in Crystal Lake. The couple was already familiar with our photography style and happily welcomed us back in their Crystal Lake home before their wedding ceremony begun.
The photography session started with Cheri getting ready at her home .
Cheri had on a gorgeous silver dress with silver floral designs sown in and sparkling diamond earrings to match it all.
Cheri was excited and nervous at the same time for her big day. She was extremely happy to have her wedding at Chalet Hill Golf Course and couldn’t wait to see her soul mate.
Cheri and a couple of close friends arrived with her at the outdoor ceremony.
Matt escorted by Niamh come to the aisle.
A harp played softly in the background Ave Maria
- then the flower girls threw white flowers along the aisle and Cheri walks to the aisle on the sound of Love Pachelbel’s Canon
- The officiant – Cheri’s daughter Kelly began the ceremony and the couple kissed. Deniss read Corinthians 13:13 and Corinthians 13:4-8a while Joey was reading few proverbs:
-“There are three things that amaze me- o No, four things that I don’t understand: o How an eagle glides through the sky,
– How a snake slithers on a rock,
– How a ship navigate the ocean,
– How a man loves a woman”
The ceremony continued with Exchange of Rings and Tartan Hand Wrap and of course more readings
The ceremony ended with the Declaration of Marriage then First Kiss and introduction as Mr. and Mrs.
It was a small wedding at Chalet Hill Golf course with only a few close friends and relatives but most of them arrived from overseas, some from Ireland some from Australia.
All the men who attended wore kilts to celebrate the special moment with Cheri and Matt.
Once the ceremony was done and family portraits taken we went with the couple for a lovely outdoor photo session on the golf course and even took some with their friends and family. The weather was beautiful for this outdoor Irish wedding in Carry IL.
After the wedding ceremony, the guest headed for cocktail hour at the Challet Hill venue, while the couple and a few friends continued with their wedding photography session. The reception started at the clubhouse and there was a short introduction of both the bride and groom from the best man and maid of honor. There were a lot of cheers and laughter for the couple and special speeches were prepared for the occasion. When the toasts were finished, the couple cut their cake and celebrated their first dance together. It was definitely a memorable wedding in Cary Illinois.
