Mike and Sheila’s Wedding wtih Urban Feel
Mike and Sheila live in the downtown area of Chicago, but their venue search was not limited to the city area only. In the search for perfect place for the truly beautiful venue with the unique design with some historical approach, they had visited many places starting from Naperville to Lake Forest and from Chicago to Joliet. And finally they decided to pick the venue in Joliet with interesting architecture. This is an old-fashioned mansion and at the same time the historical loft building, which incorporates the ideal mix of various styles.
So, the wedding ceremony was held outside the historical Jacob Henry Mansion located in Joliet under the pergola in the secret garden. The romantic and pictorial view was just ideal for the dreamy outdoor ceremony. Afterwards the nice party took place with delicious food, music, martini drink menu and a lot of joy and fun.
Department became the ideal place for the venue with the urban touch to the wedding. It gave the real feel of the downtown Chicago with its urban culture and unique gangster-inspired atmosphere.
Ryan and I are very excited to feature these photographs of our close friends Mike + Sheila and their beautiful June wedding. We definitely had some fun with their bridal party during their group photo time and getting creative. We loved the mix of fun, modern, vintage + elegant photos we captured in between M+S’s ceremony and reception.”
