Illinois Wedding Photography – Pere Marquette Lodge – Callista + Peter Pt 2

Callista + Peter got the party started at the Pere Marquette Lodge, as the Illinois nighttime came upon us.
The live band rocked the house; and dancing and celebration lasted throughout the evening.

I love this image because it shows the combination of cultures, with our bride wearing a traditional Chinese dress, but being lifted up in her chair, as part of the Jewish wedding tradition.

Here’s another shot of the same moment, this time from a different angle with a slightly slower shutter speed to capture the motion and excitement of the moment.
