Hotel Orrington, Evanston, IL // Nemshick Wedding
I'mmmmm bacccckkkkkk! Because this little business of mine consists of one employee (me, myself, and I), there are some things that get put on hold during wedding season like haircuts, seeing my family, sitting down to eat meals, and blogging. But never fear, I'm back to share with you some of my favorite weddings as well as my wide breadth of knowledge on all things wedding industry related. Ready? Here goes...
Location: Hotel Orrington, Evanston, IL
This wedding was a classic Shimon sister collabo-Jade was doin' her thing as the baddest day of coordinator in the game, and I was doing the whole camera-photography part.
I had the honor of shooting this gorgeous wedding on the most picturesque June day here in Chicago. Scott, the groom, is the brother of my sweet friend, Amanda. I stood up in Amanda's wedding last year, and one thing is extremely clear: the Nemshick family knows how to put on a wedding.
Side note-Amanda had a baby less than 48 hours before this wedding, and no one was expecting her to be there. But, Amanda wouldn't miss her brother's wedding for anything in the world, so she surprised him by getting there right before the ceremony (literally coming FROM THE HOSPITAL) and Scott got to have his sister there and meet his nephew for the first time on his wedding day.
The girls and guys got ready in their respective suites at Hotel Orrington.
Then we headed up to the rooftop for the first look! That day, though...
After the first look we headed out for some bridal party pics. There's no more beautiful place in the summer than Northwestern University's campus in the heart of Evanston.
We also made a stop at the Baha'i Gardens and Temple in Wilmette.
Both the ceremony and reception were held at Hotel Orrington in Evanston, and the staff there did a beautiful job transforming the space to reflect Anne's vision.
The night was an exquisite one that perfectly encapsulated both Anne and Scott's unique relationship, and I am so happy to have been able to document it. Congrats, guys!
