Elizabeth and Tate had a beautiful time at their iHotel wedding reception. In true COVID fashion, the couple eloped in August of 2020. I was so happy to capture their wedding reception celebration at the iHotel in Champaign last September!
Having gotten married at the height of the pandemic, Elizabeth and Tate were thrilled to be able to celebrate with their closest friends and family. COVID has really changed the way couples get married. It has never taken away the love and beauty of a wedding celebration, no matter what form it takes! Elizabeth and Tate’s was like many pandemic era weddings with a significant delay between the ceremony and the reception, but that didn’t dim the celebration for this sweet couple. I felt incredibly honored to be there with them and their loved ones on this day.
The venue space was beautiful, and Elizabeth and Tate had a wonderful time with everyone. I loved the relaxed and fun atmosphere, filled with the love between this stunning couple and the relief of a long-awaited celebration. I wish Elizabeth and Tate nothing but a joyful, loving marriage.
Wedding photographs should tell the full story: the candid joy; the family photos grandma loves; the dance photos that leave everyone feeling connected long after the music stops playing…we get to know each other throughout the planning process – that’s why every package comes with engagement photos as well. So by your wedding day, we’re old friends, you’re comfortable with my camera, and your moments are genuine and never forced.
