Glessner House Wedding | Alena & Val

Alena and Val had a lovely little ceremony and reception this past August with close family and friends. It’s always great working with Lynne from the Glessner House and every time I’ve shot there it’s been a unique setup. Alena and Val held their ceremony the Chicago Women’s Park and Gardens and their reception in the Glessner courtyard. The details were so very pretty from the ceremony’s floral arch to the gold flatware to the small mercury vases with pastel arrangements at the reception. I know it was important that the day felt intimate and romantic to Alena and her attention to detail was perfection. Below are some of my favorite images from the day.
