At the end of September we traveled to Lake in the Hills, Illinois to capture Paula and Derek’s gorgeous wedding day at Boulder Ridge Country Club. Guests traveled from all over the world to witness their exchanging of vows, including some of Paula’s family coming all the way from Poland! It was such an honor to be there to capture it all.
The color palette Paula put together, of soft lavenders and various shades of purple, was perfect for the romantic settings at Boulder Ridge Country Club. This, surrounded with crystal decorations around the reception hall, made for a truly timeless and romantic setting.
Their wedding ceremony took place outside, overlooking the early Fall colors. These two prepared beautiful vows for each other, which they exchanged in front of their family and friends. Afterwords, we had the most amazing golden light, and spent the time capturing so many pictures of Paula and Derek around the grounds of Boulder Ridge Country Club to get those golden hour portraits. Their love and happiness made our jobs so easy, and it just shined throughout the entire day.
The reception took place in the Boulder Room at the Country Club, lit by golden chandeliers and purple uplighting to bring everything together. Tears, laughter and pure happiness were plenty all night, along with some great dancing.
