Erin & Jon | Links at Carillon | Plainfield, IL
We had an absolute blast working with Erin & Jon on their wedding day! These two childhood sweethearts started their wedding day celebration surrounded by lots of friends & family members… tons of laughter, smiles, joking, and hugs. There were so many personal details present during their day… the most impressive was Erin’s hand made dress, made by her mom. Erin & Jon incorporated so many other personal touches, including Filipino wedding traditions.
Their super funny & joyful wedding party kept the fun & laughter going all day long. It’s been a while since we’ve shared so many laughs. The joy and wedding day excitement was palpable. Erin got dressed & ready at her family home, where she grew up… I just love photos of a bride getting ready at home, surrounded by all the love and memories that a home holds. Their first look took place in vast back yard of Erin’s family home. As Erin waited for Jon to make the long walk to her, the joy on her face said it all. After some hugs & tears, we captured some absolutely gorgeous photos of these love birds, after which their wedding party members joined in for more fun photos.
We made our way to the Links at Carillon for their breezy outdoor ceremony officiated by Erin’s brother! Talk about personal! Erin & Jon took part in a tradition of joining them together with a cord, a veil draped around their shoulders, and gold coins give to them. We love seeing special traditions like this!
After the ceremony, we entered the nearby tent for their reception celebration. This was one of the best tents I’ve ever seen! Gorgeous fabric draped ceilings & walls… so bright, elegant, and airy. With a toast to the guests, Erin & Jon thanked everyone and shared a cheers before taking part in their first dance as a married couple. The dancing picked up and their DJ was amazing! Custom mixes and great music selections kept the party going and the dancing was EPIC.
