Esplanade Lakes by Doubletree Wedding Photos, Downers Grove Wedding Photographer / Emily + Jason


Emily and Jason are SO sweet together!! These two met at work – she took care of patients in the ER and Jason brought those patients in via ambulance – not your normal day job :) 6 years later and these two started their forever last Saturday!! We love how much they are able to just enjoy life together!! They are constantly laughing and enjoying being around each other, and Jason and I had a blast hanging out with them on their beautiful day at Esplanade Lakes by Doubletree :) Emily’s flowers were jaw-dropping amazing thanks to the crazy talented Kio Kreations who we love working with!! We loved so many aspects of this day, but one of our favorites was the Greek dancing after dinner…Emily and Jason, we had a blast hanging out with you and wish you all the best on your new adventures! :)

PS – we had such amazing vendors on this wedding! Here’s the list:

A Posh Production / You Name It Events / Brandi Koerten Makeup / Forty-One Films / Kio Kreations
