Napperville, Illinois wedding by Orange County Wedding Photographer, Stephen Orlick
Have you ever had that sinking feeling when the flashing lights are in your rearview mirror ? You realize you weren’t paying attention and just maybe traveling a little too fast?
As the officer approaches your car you think… is there anyway I can get out of this ticket?
If it’s my wife at the wheel… yeah not a problem. There’s a real good chance that they’re going to send her on her way with just a warning and a smile.
With me, it’s about 50-50
So that’s the extent of my experience with those that serve and protect, and that’s a good thing.
Well, now I have had the pleasure to photograph the wedding of two of Naperville’s finest. Meet officer Dan and Mary.
Dan has a quiet easiness about himself , always looking, always engaged, assessing the situation and always in complete control. Quick with a smile and enjoying it all.
Mary’s enjoying the moment with a contagious smile.
You can just sense how much Mary and Dan’s family and friends love them.
It’s fun to photograph a wedding when everybody is closely connected and really enjoying themselves.
Quite a bit of talk about Mary and Dan starting a family and I know that there children will be really beautiful.
Mary and Dan’s wedding venue was at the Hyatt in Lyle Illinois right near the Morton Arboretum.
The ceremony was at their church and after the ceremony Mary, Dan, and their wedding party boarded a “party” bus headed for the Morton Arboretum for creative pictures.
First stop was at, a field a-blaze with yellow flowers and served as a brilliant backdrop for their wedding photography.
Next we did some wedding photos in the fragrance garden which teamed with color from the flowers in bloom in early September.
Then down to the lake with Dan and Mary’s wedding party to photograph the whole bridal party strolling down a path by the lake. Those wedding party images reminds me of a scene out of the movie: “THe Godfather” wedding party in Italy.
The ballroom at the Hyatt was decorated with up lighting which enhanced the experience of the wedding celebration.
The dinner was delicious, oh yes. Dan provided a vendor table for their photographers, DJ and Photo Booth person.
My second photographer was Sharon and she killed it with variations and a second perspective on the events of the day and portraits.
Thank you Sharon for such beautiful photographs.
For me it was a destination wedding photography experience since I live in Orange County California.
I love traveling and experiencing a different climate, city and circumstances. That experience is way cool when I also get to work with or meet really cool people and get to know them a bit.
Thanks for the opportunity to photograph your celebration.
I’m very grateful to be a destination wedding photographer.
