Kelsey & John’s late August wedding brought us back to one of our favorite local wedding venues. The Boulder Ridge County Club is nestled in the beautiful landscape of the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. We have been privileged enough to have photographed at this location several times, although we have only had the opportunity to shoot during cold and rainy fall and winter weddings. However, the weather was perfect for the late summer celebration of Kelsey and John’s wedding.
Kelsey and John are high school sweethearts and have been together since their underclassmen Spanish class. To say this day was a long day coming could be an understatement – as they have been dating 12 years before their big day had arrived.
Kelsey is a sweetheart whose joy inside her heart was exuded from the moment we arrived that morning. Everything was running perfectly on time. I would expect nothing less from this thoughtful and organized elementary school teacher.
As John waited for his bride’s first look, he was calm and collected – just excited for the moment that had been building up in anticipation for 12 wonderful years. If I thought the joy and excitement of the wedding couple was abundant – it multiplied the moment they saw each other for the first time that day.
This was one of our most memorable wedding days of the year as everything came together in the most perfect celebration of the summer! We are excited to share all of the beautiful photos with you – so enjoy!
A special thanks to all the vendors who made Kelsey & John’s day beautiful.
