Kalyana and Jacquelyn were married several weeks ago in the tiny town of Trenton, IL. They both live in Chicago, so I actually had never met Kalyana until the wedding day, though I had photographed Jacquelyn during a bridal session a few months ago. It was so much fun to be a part of their day.
Ceremony: Trenton, IL
Reception: Regency Conference Center
Dress: Maggie Sottero
What better way to start than with the bling?! I love this ring. It was simply stunning.
The bridesmaids were trying to figure out the beautiful necklaces Jacquelyn bought all of them.
While I was at the church with the ladies, my fabulous second shooter, Von DeVore, was at the hotel with the guys where she grabbed this shot.
I love how they’re looking at each other in this shot.
After the ceremony, they were able to steal a moment just for themselves…Plus me.
After the ceremony, we had to drive about 20 minutes to get to the hotel for the reception. We had literally 10 minutes to do all portraits. It wasn’t much time, but we made it work (in the word’s of Tim Gunn!) Plus, we had some really soft, pretty light.
What a good looking wedding party!
The tables were named after all the places they have visited, and let me tell you, these two are quite the world travelers.
How cute is this card box? Love this idea…Especially for them.
And Jacquelyn and Kalyana are quite the dancers. I loved their choreographed first dance!
