Outdoor Wedding Ceremony in West Dundee

Kristina and Tim contacted our studio few months ago to photograph their outdoor wedding ceremony in

Grafelman Park West Dundee, IL .

Last time we were at Grafelman Park it was at Mindy and Rob engagement photo session in Dundee.

Photographer: Claudia Halip


Kristine in a beautiful white wedding dress and veil just arrived at Gaferman park in West Dundee IL. I took a black and white portrait to start.

The gazebo was already decorated for 4th of July celebrations and we had to have a couple of shots of the newly weds in front of it.


We stood under the gazebo before the 4th of July to hear the pastor welcome Kristina and Tim into marriage.


Both Kristina and Tim could not stop smiling and laughing!

A small group of friends joined them for their summer wedding. It was a very intimate outdoor wedding ceremony with close families.



I couldn’t forget a quick photo with Kristina’s parents!

I incorporated a lot of nature elements in here. The summer sun gave us excellent lighting and the grass was so beautifully green.
