Wedding Photography at Morton Arboretum in Chicago, Illinois (Post by David) – Colleen and Tom’s wedding day started at the Hyatt Lisle, just down the street from the Morton Arboretum. The Arboretum is a beautiful location just outside Chicago in Lisle, Illinois. It’s a place surrounded by stone drives, old trees and a maze of evergreens. The cold was blistering at around 15 degrees, but it added to the crisp and beautiful atmosphere of the ice cold winter’s day.
Colleen and Tom’s wedding and reception were in the Ginko Room, which had a beautiful panoramic view of the gardens, frozen lake, sculptures and snow-covered pines beyond. Their room was decorated with twinkle lights and candles, black damask table cloths, and hanging glass lanterns. The dance floor was seriously packed all night long (thanks in part to their awesome DJ) with young and old having the time of their life. Colleen’s dad who owns a chocolate factory provided the sweets for their chocolate bar. Seriously the absolute best turtles and chocolate malt balls I’ve ever had in my life. No exaggeration there.
Thanks so much to Colleen and Tom for a wonderful day, being so fun to work with all the way up until the very end (and, of course, for the burgers and beer at the after party —they totally hit the spot). Your family treated us like old friends and we couldn’t have asked for a more fun group of people to work with. 🙂

We thought Claire was one of the cutest flower girls ever, and not just because she has the same name as my niece. 🙂
Cathy and I hope these two (below) hire us at some point, even if it’s just a session. They were awesome. 😀
