You can view the first part of Kelley and Ben's wedding here.

So many brides cross their french manicured fingers for a wedding day like Kelley and Ben's. The light was beautiful. I didn't even need to wear a jacket. And it was NOVEMBER! in CHICAGO!

One of my favorite moments of the day was watching Kelley dance with her father and Ben dance with his mother. Wow! They all can dance! I also loved photographing the wedding party as they danced and sang in the trolley as it strolled through downtown Naperville.

Kelley and Ben, thank you so much for hiring me to capture your beautiful wedding. I had a ball!

 

If you want to relive the memories from the entire wedding, you can view the slideshow here. Recognize the music, Kelley and Ben?

Some weddings just beg for more than one post. With Kelley and Ben's vibrant colors and warm November day wedding, these photos need a proper showing.

Kelley and Ben had their "First Look" at Catigny Park. I totally respect the tradition of the bride and groom not seeing each other until the wedding ceremony.  That being said, for fall and winter weddings when the sun sets earlier, it's so much easier for the couple to trade tradition for better light. Seeing each other without an audience also settles the couple's nerves and allows them to enjoy cocktail hour later. I did it for my own wedding and loved it.

So ta da!  Here is Part 1! (Two of the photos, photo of the groomsmen and one of the "First Look" photos are by my second photographer, the talented Kelly Ry.)
