Justyna & Joe’s County Line Orchard Indiana Wedding
It was a beautiful summer day when I arrived at the Holy Trinity Polish Catholic Church in Chicago. We were able to take a few solo portraits of the soon-to-be newlyweds before heading inside for their ceremony.
Let me just say, the interior of this church was unreal. The murals and artwork were some of my favorites to capture and added to the elegance of Justyna & Joe’s wedding day. After their ceremony, Justyna & Joe were married and even had a grand bubble exit as they walked out of the church. Surrounded by all of their friends and family, it was such a beautiful sight to witness.
Portraits at Milton Lee Olive Park
Milton Lee Olive Park is a gorgeous photo location for wedding portraits. Naturally, this was the perfect spot for us and the wedding party to head for some photos. The weather was just divine, slightly hot and windy, but we made it work. It was important for Justyna & Joe to have the perfect blend of those beautiful candid shots along with some traditional posing. Mission set and accomplished, if you ask me!
Wedding Reception at County Line Orchard
It wasn’t long until we made the hour-long commute to County Line Orchard in Indiana for their reception. We took a few portraits of Justyna & Joe in the open orchard fields as the sun came peaking behind us. This in and of itself made the drive so worth it.
The reception space at County Line Orchard was held inside their rustic barn. Draped in twinkling lights and windows that brought in tons of natural light, guests were seated as we waited for Justyna & Joe to make their grand entrance. A standout portion of their reception that I have to note is that Justyna & Joe had a choreographed swing dance to surprise their guests. I have to say we were ALL impressed by the level of skill they brought to the table, it was seriously adorable.
Before packing up my bags for the night, cakes were cut and dance floors were open to welcome all of their guests to join in on the party. This wedding guest list did not skip out on showing off their best dance moves and the photos show just that. It was a night to remember and one I kept reliving in my head on the drive home to Chicago.
Review From The Newlyweds | Justyna & Joe
“Emma went ABOVE and BEYOND literally every aspect of our wedding day! From playing music during photo sessions to being our hype woman to getting all and any shots that we wanted, to helping us relax in our element as a married couple during the photo sessions and enjoy our special day! She came up with new and cool ideas for shots and worked so well with our family, friends, bridal party, and vendors! Her talent, creativity, storytelling, and expertise shows in not only her incredible photography, but also her kind-hearted professionalism, and speedy delivery! Her photos captured all of the love and joy of our wedding day. Emma is truly a rockstar!”
