The Empress Banquets Wedding Photos, Addison Wedding Photography / April + Vito


April and Vito met in 2013 and dated for 3 years before Vito proposed in Italy (in an amazing restaurant tucked away in a cave right on the Adriatic Sea – so unbelievably romantic!!!). I can’t even begin to say how much we love these two. They are completely in love with each other, best friends, and my favorite part, they have fun together.

And they dance. Like, all the time :)

You don’t even know how happy this makes me, and they were having fun and dancing their whole wedding day!!

Their day started off with an emotional ceremony (yes Vito, we caught you crying!) at Riverside Presbyterian Church, followed by portraits at Wilder Park in Elmhurst. Their Empress Banquets reception was SO ridiculously fun. Their families exude the most amazing personalities, vibrance, love, and care for each other and for April and Vito.

They also ALL love to dance. I was so happy you have no idea :):):):)

April and Vito, thank you for choosing us to document this journey for you two. We absolutely adore you and wish you all of the best things in life!!!!
