Spring Stan Mansion Wedding | Chicago, IL

Crystal and Josef

Crystal and Joe had such a beautiful day for their wedding!  It was April and 60 degrees out, sunny with clear blue skies.  I mostly mention this because the next day we had the crazy April snowstorm that lasted about 24 hours after having 60 degree weather!!  I was so happy we got this beautiful day so we could move around to all the locations we planned!!

I started the day with the ladies while my second was photographing the groomsmen at a house down the road.  One thing I love about Stan Mansion is that the bridal room is perfect for getting ready photos and all the glam hair and makeup things!  It makes it so easy when you can get ready at the same venue you are getting married at!

After everyone was beautiful we did the sweet first look, always all the feels! Then we headed in a bus to Garfield Park Conservatory for photos!  I love shooting at the Conservatory in the winter/spring when the weather is unpredictable, it is so lush and perfect for photos!!

We headed back to Stan Mansion where it had been completely transformed into a beautiful ceremony and reception space!  The white tulips and the crystal table centerpieces were so romantic and elegant!

I stayed a bit later than usual  to cover the dance floor because Crystal and Joe loved to dance.  They salsa-ed and did so many more different dances and I wanted to be there to cover it all.  It was such a gorgeous day!! Congrats again Crystal and Joe!!
