Julia & Sargy

Julia and Sargy had a small ceremony at the Maple Street Beach in Winnetka with their families and bridal party. It’s a teensy little public beach tucked away so you likely wouldn’t know it’s there and they had it all to themselves. It’s a perfect little spot.

After their ceremony and pictures, we traveled to Rolling Meadows for a big reception celebration at La Mirage. This was my first time photographing a Russian wedding and everyone was having such a great time. There was sooo much yummy food, dancing, and of course the Vodka shots! Everything is paced so well– eat, dance, toast, eat some more, dance some more.. The party just goes all night long:) As a surprise at the end of the night, Julia played with her bandmates for Sargy. And, the coolest part, she’s the drummer!

xo Julia and Sargy.
