I've known Kurtis since high school, so I was absolutely thrilled to learn that he was engaged! I met his beautiful fiance Lauren at our engagement session and she is just a dream. Smart, funny, accomplished - they are perfect for each other.
Fast forward to October of 2016 - my husband Paul and I hit the road to Elmhurst Illinois to capture the priceless wedding day of Lauren and Kurtis. It was a quick five hour drive for us and we were ready to go! We spent the night Friday night so we were up and ready to go early Saturday morning! :)
The wedding party was an absolute dream to work with! Gorgeous ladies and handsome gentlemen (all very cooperative!) combined with a beautiful location made this wedding so much fun! The historic Wilder Mansion is absolutely gorgeous (and available for weddings!)
They even have outdoor gardens and a greenhouse available! Since it was chilly in October in Illinois, we opted for some gorgeous greenhouse photos!
AND to top it all off, they have gorgeous GARDENS on the property as well!
And if it isn't enough that the outside of the Wilder Mansion is absolutely gorgeous with tons of great spots of photos (and you can have your ceremony outside as well!), the inside is just as spectacular.
Gaaah! It is so gorgeous!
It was such a privilege to photography the wedding of Lauren and Kurtis at this gorgeous Wilder Mansion in Elmhurst, Illinois!
