Anna & Charley, Morton Arboretum

It was the sweetest occasion. Anna & Charley’s rustic elegant wedding at Morton Arboretum had us wrapped up in their love. One of my favorite photos of the day was of Anna before she had her First Look with Charley – doesn’t she look like an angel?

The backdrop of the outdoor venue really provided Dean with the perfect palette for all of the photos from the day. As guests arrived, they were greeted with some hot chocolate and a choir. That detail is not one we see every day and added that extra special touch. After the ceremony, guests were ushered indoors to warm up with cocktails, appetizers, an acoustic guitar and a photo booth. As guests moved into dinner, they experienced the full rustic elegant style of Anna and Charley. With deep purple linens, natural centerpieces, and Italian string lights, the guests were engulfed in the love of the day. After a 3 course meal, the guests were ready to party with Rendezvous. What a perfectly sweet day!
