As a Chicago elopement photographer, I loved capturing Gabby and Scott’s special day. With it only being 6 degrees on this cold January day, we found refuge from the frigid weather in the Lincoln Park Conservatory. It was so warm inside that we even ditched out coats 😉Gabby and Scott kept their day special and intimate. The two exchanged vows at the DuPage County Courthouse in Wheaton, and then headed to Chicago for photos at the Lincoln Park Conservatory.
I had a fun time hanging out with Gabby and Scott at the Lincoln Park Conservatory. Except for some workers, and a few other visitors, we pretty much had the entire conservatory to ourselves. It might have been a cold day in the city, but inside the conservatory we felt like we were transported to a tropical location.
I wish I had a behind the scenes photo for how we created the photo below. One of the Lincoln Park Conservatory staff members walked by with a large palm leaf, and asked, “Hey, do you want to use this for a photo?” He was nice enough to hold it in front of my camera, and then I captured this more artistic photo of Gabby and Scott.
One of the things I will alway love about weddings is that it doesn’t matter whether your day consists of just the two of you, or you and 200 other guests. The day should be exactly how you want it to be. For Gabby and Scott, it was an intimate day with a courthouse ceremony, photos in Chicago, followed by a romantic dinner for two. If at then end of the day, you married the person you love, that’s what makes it special and meaningful.
