The anticipation and feelings flying around minutes before Alejandra and Edwin’s first look will always warm our hearts. Not only were they excited but super nervous as we prepared everything on the terrace of the Arista Hotel in Naperville. Why you ask? Because they had been waiting for this moment ever since they met in high school.
The story of this high school sweetheart couple captivated us since day one. When Alejandra and Edwin came to our studio we could tell right away the affection and love they had for each other. As well as Alejandra’s deep and sincere smile and Edwin’s shy but noble side.
After their engagement pictures we quickly realized how important family was to both of them. And you could definitely see the support all their family gave them on their special day.
The outdoor ceremony was celebrated at Prairie Landing Golf Club and accompanied by Mariachi Perla de México. With the perfect sunset and the romantic touch from the mariachi, they couldn’t have asked for a better background for such a touching ceremony.
The rest of the night was full of laughs, cheers, a few tears and lots of dancing! Let’s not forget the sexy dance that Edwin prepared for Alejandra…the shy boy we had met wasn’t so shy after all ;)
Alejandra and Edwin, we hope to continue enjoying through social media all the pictures of your accomplished dreams and those that are yet to come. We are happy that you are part of our lives as our clients and now friends.
The mint colored Jimmy Choo shoes were a delight to our eyes
All the details like this spectacular sash made this wedding a dream to photograph.
Ale’s skin color made her beauty stand out even more and the details of her dress…she definitely looked incredible.
I must confess that moments like these are what make our day marvelous.
Ale’s sisters shared her joy that showed in each gesture.
The groomsmen made sure our groom relaxed and enjoyed his day.
After so many years of waiting, the moment had finally arrived.
The bridesmaids were the perfect compliment to such a radiant and full of joy bride
Not sure how we caught this, but we did!
After some funny and emotional speeches it was time for the first dance…
And let the party begin…and many more years of celebration!
