Kate and Creg had the most perfect January day surrounded by their closest family and friends. I have known Kate for many years through mutual friends, so when she reached out to me about her wedding, I was thrilled to chat photography with her! Kate and Craig are one of the sweetest couples I know. The two met a few years back while they were both teaching, and they are both simply just very excited to mark the “official” start of their lives together.
The details of the wedding could be summed up to a classic elegance. The emerald tones of the bridesmaid dress complemented the blush and ivory tones throughout the florals and details. The ceremony took place at St. Bernard’s Church in Homer Glen, IL, followed by bridal party portraits at the Bird Haven Greenhouse in Joliet.
Their reception was held in the gorgeous DiNolfo’s Banquets in Homer Glen, where the newlyweds danced their first dance to “Carried Away” by George Strait. One of my favorite highlights was the Hokey Pokey, led by the world’s most adorable flower girl. The speeches were also memorable, particularly when everyone was able to join in singing their best wishes to “The Ponchak Bunch!” Congratulations Kate and Creg!
