One of the benefits of having a lot of irons in the fire is that I don't HAVE to do weddings. What I mean by that is I'm able to choose couples who's style and attitude mesh well with mine. I don't feel like I have to take every wedding that comes across. Kate & Nick's style and wedding location were a perfect fit for my approach. They got married, and had the reception, at the Byron Colby Barn in Grayslake, IL. It reminded me a lot of my first wedding at Oak Hill in Galena. Great space with a lot of energy. It was a little cold that day, but every really stepped up and sucked it up and you wouldn't even know it was in the 30's when you look at the pictures.
Ceremony & Reception: Byron Colby Barn - Grayslake, IL
