Wedding Photography Royalty West Banquets with Eli and Ema

Eli and Ema are a beautiful young couple from Romania. This wedding had a lot of Romanian traditions and we were so glad that we could celebrate it with them. The couple both got ready at Eli’s house in Burr Ridge, IL.

When we came in, Ema was already getting her make up done by Diana, the make up artist. Ema also had her hair curled and professionally done as well. We took some time here and photographed both the bride and groom getting ready. Ema’s make up was very nicely done and perfect for a bride. She had light pink lipstick and light pink/gray eyeshadow on. She wore a white headband and a long traditional wedding dress. Eli wore a light gray suit with a dark gray tie.

When everybody was ready, we went to the Golgotha Romanian Pentecostal Church for the ceremony. The ceremony was a little longer than usual and took roughly three hours. During that time, the bride and groom were introduced, then there were prayers for them, and then the pastors blessed them.

When the ceremony was finished, we headed to the reception at the Royalty West Banquets in Willow Spring where Eli and Ema celebrated with friends and family. The wedding photography at Royalty West Banquets was a lot of fun to do. The reception area was beautifully decorated. The couple’s table was fitted with a white table cloth that had a drape affect on it and also had a lovely flower display in the middle. The wedding cake was a pure snow white and decorated in flowers from top to bottom.

After the reception, we sneaked out with the couple and a few of their friends to have a wedding photo session. We were actually pretty lucky because the sun was out and shining brightly. Earlier that day it had been raining and it was a bit foggy. It was beautiful wedding photography at Royalty West Banquets, because the bride stood in front of the spring trees. We had a couple of private moments with the couple without friends and family close by. We captured Eli and Ema sitting near the lake and holding one in other. Overall, it was a great day and I’m glad we were able to spend it with both Eli and Ema.
