Elegant Monte Bello Estate Wedding


When Rachel and Andrew first described their vision for a fanciful, modern wedding at the Monte Bello Estate in Lemont, Illinois, I knew it would be any fine art photographer's dream. Andrew and Rachel are truly two best friends in love, and their wedding is an expression of their joy and happiness.

This October wedding was truly a celebration of family, friends and a shared love of design and style. With details from BHLDN and bouquets of blush garden roses by Andrew's Garden, Rachel and Andrew created an elegant, timeless garden wedding with a dash of their adorable shared sense of humor (see the wedding cake toppers!).  

As a photographer, I'm very aware that my work is only made possible by the incredible vendors who create the work I have the joy to reflect. Big thanks to officiant Jeannie Walton, makeup artist Vanessa Valliant, Andrew McGarvey of Back Third Entertainment and Briann at Imagination Designers! Most of all, I'm grateful for my second photographer of the day, Maggie Fortson.
