Chris and Emily’s Chicago Saddle & Cycle Club Wedding is another favorite from last summer. The overall ambience of the Chicago Saddle & Cycle club is just dreamy. It has the perfect mixture of romance & sophistication in this hidden urban gem.
We began the day off photographing Emily at her grandmother’s historic house in Winnetka. Emily had grown up visiting her grandmother’s house and had some pretty special memories hanging out on her front porch, so we made sure to get a picture of her and her bridesmaids there. It was also the perfect getting ready location because it just so happened to be right around the corner from the Winnetka Congregational Church where the ceremony was being held. This church was also very special to Emily and her family. We took a few pictures in the church garden where Emily’s grandfather is actually buried. I loved that the ceremony space was bright, letting in a lot of outdoor light. It allowed for some beautiful photographs.
This gorgeous Chicago Saddle & Cycle Club wedding continued at the reception. We lucked out with some perfect end of July weather! Guests were able to enjoy the outdoor patio and seating as well as some of the grounds. The night ended with some amazing music and dancing by the Blue Water Kings.
