Evelyn Chapel Wedding Tented Ewing Mansion Reception, Bloomington, IL
Where can I begin with this wonderful wedding? Well, it took place at two of our favorite locations to shoot: Evelyn Chapel and Ewing Mansion. From the preparations to the energy-infused and rain-soaked reception, this day was filled with laughter, tears, and love. It’s an absolute joy to photograph the interactions of two individuals that belong together, such as Shelby and Mitch.
Speaking of preparations, the day started off just a little crazy. One of the first things that we often do or photograph at the beginning of the day is the bride’s dress. This day was no different. As we began to take Shelby’s gown out of the dress bag, one of the bridesmaids exclaimed, that’s not Shelby’s dress! ‘No way’, I thought to myself. Then Shelby’s sister chimed in and confirmed that the dress was not Shelby’s. This was a first for Mark. Now what do we do? After a few anxious moments and a quick phone call made by Shelby’s mother to the dress shop in Peoria, Shelby’s dress was on it’s way. After this, all worked out well, the wedding was gorgeous and the guests had a great time filling the dance floor after a very lovely meal.
Congratulations to our newlyweds! Thank you for the privilege of capturing these special moments for you. Shelby and Mitch worked with us through the sunshine and torrential downpour, ready and willing to walk outside amongst the Ewing grounds with umbrella in hand.
And thanks to Mark!
