NON-TRADITIONAL WEDDING AND ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER ✶ CO, IL, FL, INFINITY & BEYOND
HENNESSEY PHOTO CO
When Zach & Taylor gave me the opportunity to head back to my hometown for the Independence Day weekend and capture their rock and roll wedding day, I didn’t hesitate. I’ve known Zach for years; we went to the same highschool and while we didn’t have classes together, we’ve kept in touch over the years because he’s just one of the raddest guys I’ve ever met. And when I met Taylor, I just knew this was his person, and I couldn’t be happier for them! I captured this Illinois rock and roll wedding, Elvis and vintage hot rod included, right outside of Chicago at a venue called Loft28 in Aurora, Illinois. If you’re looking for an industrial blank space that has a cool, moody vintage vibe, this is your spot.
What do you think? Would you have Elvis officiate your wedding? Believe me when I say, it rocked the house. Zach and Taylor chose a few different things to keep their wedding day non-traditional. They started with hiring an Elvis impersonator to officiate the ceremony, but then, during cocktail hour, he actually performed for all the guests. He pulled Zach and Taylor up there with him, and oh my goodness it was epic. They chose vintage inspired touches, with a 60s and 70s inspiration to top off the vibe, and Loft28 really shined to showcase beautiful lighting, exposed ceilings, and really unique vintage touches throughout.
I don’t think there’s better inspiration for a rock and roll wedding, and who would have thought Illinois would show up for this? As your Chicago wedding photographer, I can help you narrow down venues, your timeline, preferred vendors, and inspiration. Plus, my roots here are your gain; even though I’m Colorado-based, I do not charge any travel fees to Illinois, and that includes central Illinois, Chicago, and the Chicagoland surrounding area. Lots of my couples even choose to elope in Colorado, and have a larger reception back home in Illinois, and this works out well for my midwestern friends! I’d love to hear about how you want to rock your wedding–let’s party.
