These two are just about the CUTEST GROOMS in the whole wide world! I am so incredibly honored that I got to photograph their Silver Lake Country Club wedding in Orland Park on the special date of 10/10/2020. One of the most unfortunate aspects of the pandemic is that I’m not able to meet some of my couples before their big day. These boys were no exception- we had talked on the phone for weeks leading up to their date about how I was going to best capture the day. It only made me more excited to meet everyone!
Both Colton (white jacket, black shirt) and Dominic (black jacket, white shirt) are the perfect combination of easy-going yet organized. They weren’t fussy, agitated or annoyed with anything that wasn’t exactly how they envisioned it. One of the siblings was unable to come to their Silver Lake Country Club wedding because they tested positive for Covid-19. Some folks were running a little late, and sometimes we moved the wedding party from one location to another. But that didn’t stop Colton + Dominic from smiling, laughing with their family and enjoying the celebration of their love. It always makes my job a whole lot easier to photograph people who are constantly giggling!
This day could not have been possible without the help of Michele and Katie, the wonderful mothers of the grooms. I was more than appreciative of their efforts to corral the gang together for family photos. The moms also made sure that every detail was just right. To honor these marvelous women, Colton + Dominic had a shared mother/son dance, then switched partners so each could share a song with their mother-in-law. Throughout the day Michele could be seen beaming and taking videos on her phone. An emotional Katie had tissues close at hand. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t tear up at one point in the evening.
Colton. Dominic. You guys. Thank you so much for having me at your Silver Lake Country Club Wedding. I love photographing my friends more than anything, and by the end of the night I felt like I had known these two for years. I wish you all the happiness in the world, CONGRATS !!! :)
