Long Grove Wedding | Stephanie & Robert
While Robert and his groomsmen started the day at the Courtyard Marriott in Arlington Heights, Stephanie and her bridesmaid got ready at home with plenty of smiles and energy to go around. Stephanie has long admired the old charm of downtown Long Grove so it was only fitting to have their ceremony at the Long Grove Community Church. The reception wasn’t too far way, taking place at Concorde Banquets in Kildeer.
But before all of that, the bride & groom had their first look in downtown Long Grove as well, just outside The Chatter Box where the boys enjoyed some drinks and games just before the first look. We continued to take some classic photos on the historic 111-year old downtown Long Grove Bridge. Being that it’s January in Chicago, the temperature was a torturing single digit with winds below zero! So we took refuge in a nearby antique shop Scout and Forge. Thank you so much Matt & Meg for opening up your doors and letting us use your shop for some cool rustic photos.
Some cool & fun details… Robert and his groomsmen started the day with a beer pong table which somehow ended up at the cocktail hour at Concorde. Since 2016 was finally the Cubs’ year, it was only fitting for the bride to fly the W flag during the introductions while the groom wore the championship hat. The “ring security” team used mini treasure boxes instead of the traditional pillow. Stephanie & Robert had a mini sparkler send off at the end of the nigh with their wedding party.

Congratulations Stephanie & Robert! Thank you for trusting us with your most important day!
