Alexis and Jhonattan had a wonderful wedding at Hotel Baker St Charles in Illinois. We had done their engagement photos at Hotel Baker a few months earlier and it was obvious then just how awesome they were to photograph.
They say rain on your wedding day is good luck. Well these two are in for years of good luck then. The staff at Hotel Baker had a monumental task of flipping the ceremony site from outside to inside due to heavy rain. They had it all set up well before ceremony time.
The bigger challenge was then swapping the same room from a ceremony site to a reception hall in an hour during cocktails. Again the staff were incredible and had the room set up and looking stunning well before guests arrived back for the ceremony.
While the staff were busy changing the room, we had time for formal photos and some candids at cocktail hour. If you are gonna be stuck indoors on wedding day, Hotel baker is one of the best venues to be suck at haha. So many cool places for photos. WE even open a door and shot inside with an outside view to be creative too.
Receptions at Hotel Baker are one of my favorite to photograph. The dance floor is so unique. In fact the whole space is unique. The dance floor lights up from under the floor. That high ceiling only adds to the incredible light and color in the room. I was so glad we had a rocking DJ and some awesome dancing to cap off a wonderful wedding.
Here is a gallery of my favorite images from the day.
