It’s not every weekend that we get to shoot a wedding in Illinois so we were very honored to be a part of Kaitlin and Phillip’s wedding day.
Kaitlin and Phillip started off their day by getting ready with their bridal parties and families at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Lisle, Il. The girls got their hair and makeup done while the guys hung out. Here are a few pictures from their morning:
When we arrived at the church, Kaitlin gave each of her bridesmaids a letter to thank them for being a part of her day. Then, Kaitlin opened her gift from Phillip. As part of the gift, he included a letter that he had written from when they first started dating in which he said that he knew he was going to marry her one day. It was such a beautiful moment. Kaitlin then had a first look with her father, which was a very special moment.
Then, it was time for the ceremony. Their ceremony took place at St. Isaac Jogues Catholic Church in Hinsdale, Il, which was special to Kaitlin because that is where she attended school until she and her family moved to Ohio. Their ceremony was beautiful and was accompanied by the gorgeous voice of Phillip’s sister.
After they said their “I do’s”, it was time for their portraits at the church and their reception location. Here are a few of our favorites:
Then it was party time! Their DJ, Bryant Monterrosa, kept the party alive all night and everyone danced the night away.
We had such a great time celebrating with Kaitlin, Phillip, their families, and their friends. We wish them a lifetime of love and happiness.
