Winter Wedding at Wilder Mansion


The Wilder Mansion in Elmhurst, Illinois was once a public library where this beautiful bride spent her days as a child. Now, it’s an elegant and timeless space perfect for a wedding of the same nature. The mansion is the perfect marriage of elegant history and modern celebration, and the actual marriage of J + S was, too. Since both the bride and groom are musician/scientists (seriously…how cool is that?!), it makes sense that their wedding would be the perfect blend of their families and traditions, too. From their blended ceremony to the bride’s father’s band opening the reception with a few awesome songs, with thoughtful details and timeless decor, these two created a stunning wedding day to be remembered for years to come as the perfect March celebration. I was so lucky to be a part of it, and I’m thrilled to share a few of my favorite photos here:

Thank you so much for choosing me to capture your memories. Here’s to many years of blissful partnership together!
