A few weeks ago I had the honor of joining Kalyn of Rays of Life Photography in capturing her friend's L & G's wedding day on March 24, 2018. Kalyn began the day capturing the bride and her bridal party getting ready at the hotel. I joined them at the Danada House in Wheaton and what an amazing wedding venue! If you love older homes, then this is definitely a place to visit. With the unique floor plan and all these little nooks and cozy spots for family and friends to relax. And the bride took care of everything - there were beautiful details every where you turned!
If you have a tight timeline for your big day, consider stretching the budget and brining in another photographer for the busiest part of the day. While Kalyn was with the bride and her attendants, I was able to work with the groom and capture the guys getting ready and the portraits. Then while Kalyn captured family portraits, I documented the cocktail hour and venue details. Then we captured the ceremony together. It was the perfect combination to getting the most of our photography time, and allowing this happy couple to maximize the time they had to spend with their friends and family.
