Mistwood Golf Club Wedding Photos | Liz & Mark
While Mark started his day at their new home, Liz got ready at her parents’ home, which has become familiar to us. After 2 weddings, there are now 4 new adorable faces competing for photo attention with the bride-to-be. The ceremony took place at St Jude Catholic Church in New Lenox, one of our favorite churches with lots of space and light to work with. Both wedding party photos and the reception took place at Mistwood Golf Club in Romeoville. Liz was very excited to share her venue choice with us, as she knew we would very much appreciate its characteristics. And she was right! This venue was rustic with a touch of urban on the inside and was gorgeously designed on the outside for photos. Liz and Mark also did a great job dressing up the room with just the right amount of decor, letting its natural beauty do most of the work.
It was a VERY windy and cold day which made it a bit of a struggle to get good photos having to fight the wind and trying to catch everyone looking comfortable. But we had a lot of help from the bride & groom. Liz has this bright contagious smile that automatically cheers you up complemented by Mark’s cool and laid back presence. No matter how windy and cold, the entire wedding party were all laughs and very much enjoyed the short photo shoot. Thanks everyone for just enjoying the day regardless of conditions.
Some cool details… The bride and groom opted for the head table to be bare, showing its elegant wood finish to complement the centerpiece; their cake, standing atop a custom wine barrel built by the groom himself. The famous photo frame card box made its round, hopefully not the last time. The groom has something we’ve never seen before, a black rubber wedding ring to fit his work background. Guests were treated to a late night spread of sliders and mini hot dogs (always makes guests happy). So glad to see a guestbook with their engagement photos! If you’ve never seen them, check out their Engagement Photos here, one of our absolute favorites with its unique location.
Bitter sweet… It’s the last wedding for this family and we are so very honored and lucky to be part of every single one of them. You have all been so warm and welcoming and such a joy to photograph. So thank you so very much for letting us be a part of it all from the bottom of our hearts! Congratulations Liz & Mark! – Michelle & Tony
