Sonya and Jason had a wonderful early spring wedding at Hotel Baker. I remember meeting them at a bridal show last year at the hotel. A wonderful perk of working at Hotel baker a few times over the last year was being added to their recommended vendor list. This came with an invitation to their bridal shows.
Sonya and Jason had a beautiful ceremony at St. Francis of Assisi Parish Bolingbrook, IL. It is a wonderful sanctuary and has lovely natural light. I always try to avoid any flash or distractions during wedding ceremonies. Some sanctuaries are very dark and make that a challenge, but this St. Francis of Assisi was flooded with natural light.
It was a windy, rainy day and we were unable to get many photos outside. We did however manage some group photos at Hotel Baker in the cocktail hour room. Having several open spaces to do group photos indoors is a real bonus.
Once the reception started, Joe Medrano ( Show on the Road DJ) had the party jumping pretty soon after the first dances. I have met so many great vendors at weddings over the years. Joe is one I added to my list of favs the next day.
Speaking of first dances….. This dance floor never gets old for me. No matter how many times I photograph weddings here I just love the dance floor every time.
Here is a gallery of a few more images from this awesome wedding at Hotel Baker.
