Sean & Jess | Sneak Peek! | Riverside Receptions, Geneva, IL Wedding

Sean & Jess were married on a Friday, and their ceremony and reception took place at the same lovely venue - Riverside Receptions in Geneva!  So I suggested to them that we do a "first look" - a ceremonious viewing of each other after getting ready for their wedding - and then proceed to take all of the bridal party and family photos prior to the ceremony, so that they would be free to immediately start enjoying their party right after they got married.  We did the first look at a nearby hotel, and I must say it was one of my favorite ones lately - Jess had her dad walk her up to Sean, so he was part of giving his lovely daughter away.  Its a tradition that doesn't hold the same meaning it once did - but it does symbolize that Dad is "passing the torch" to the new most important man in Jess's life.  After the look we went to Fabyan Forest Preserve in their Japanese Gardens - one of my favorite spots to shoot!  The whole day was beautiful & fun, and I know that Jess & Sean will have a beautiful and fun life in the future! <3 Untitled-6 Untitled-5 Untitled-4 Untitled-3 Untitled-2 Untitled-1 IMG_8288 IMG_7950 IMG_7544 IMG_7422 IMG_7380 IMG_6923 IMG_6510 IMG_4064
