Going back to Oak Brook Bath and Tennis to shoot Justine and Alfredo’s wedding was bittersweet. The Oak Brook Bath and Tennis Club was the very first venue that I shot a wedding at 9 years ago! Justine and Alfredo had booked me for their engagement session last winter. They had not decided on their wedding photographer but we did such a good job for them that they ended up booking their 2022 wedding with us as well. Alfredo and Justine are truly a dream team — they are the most charming couple I have ever met.
The day started off cloudy with a bit of drizzle in the air. Nothing that would ruin the wedding but enough to be cautious about. Justine and Alfredo got ready at the Hilton Oak Brook with their parents and wedding party. We captured their first look outside the hotel near the golf course. Alfredo was the sweetest when he turned to see his bride-to-be. He could not believe how beautiful Justine was in her princess gown. A few tears were shed and some loving words between the couple. Afterward, we took their portraits and wedding party photos. The wind had picked up and we were rushed to get done before it got worse. Thankfully the rain held back and we headed to the ceremony at Oak Brook Bath and Tennis. The outdoor ceremony was lovely with a grand entrance from the bride and her mother who walked her down the aisle. Justine & Afredo’s sweet dog Ace even made an appearance. The ceremony lasted a few minutes with sharing of the Lasso unity ceremony and then the first kiss as husband and wife.
I loved getting to know this sweet couple and their friends and family who made their day ever so special. I hope they enjoy this sneak peek of their wedding day. Congratulations again Justine and Alfredo and I can’t wait to see all of the Honeymoon pics!
A special thanks to all the vendors who made Justine & Alfredo’s wedding day beautiful!
