A Meaningful Day
Tara & George did it again! Another meaningful, fun, and gorgeous celebration that I had the honor to photograph. Their sweet, sweet daughter; Alenia, was Baptised at St. Nectarios Greek Orthodox Church in Palantine. There is something so peaceful and moving about these hallowed traditions, and the day’s ceremony was truly that.
So many familiar faces, it’s always an honor to be a photographer who takes a part in creating a family’s photographic story time and time again.
The reception was held at Chandler’s Chophouse and Banquets in Schaumburg. The lush green landscape at the venue was just perfect for spring!
A fun little story: When we were planning the photography coverage Tara messaged me and asked if I as bringing Ryan or Owen to assist- she wanted to make sure to have the proper headcount for dining. This was so sweet and I told her that we always bring snacks and water… suddenly George is in the group chat and says “Jessi, you’re not having snacks at out big fat greek baptism!”. This sums up Tara and George so well. They are incredible hosts and so, so very gracious. I just treasure them as clients!!!
Perfect in Pink
Look at the pink! I know I am not the only one who just loves giant balloons. So poppy and vibrant on camera!
Look at this sweetie. She brings so many people joy and they are here to celebrate her!
So many familiar faces, it’s always an honor to be a photographer who takes a part in creating a family’s photographic story time and time again. The party really began when the music started playing! The classic Greek music truly got everyone off their feet! I LOVED photographing the dancing!!!
