One day when we're old and gray, remind me to tell you about the time I almost got shot by an assault rifle on a U.S. Navy Base one morning as I was on my way to photograph a wedding. It's a comical story indeed, but luckily, I survived to see another day! Praise the Lord! Lol. After all of the excitement of getting onto the naval base on the morning of Renee & Kyle's wedding subsided, it actually turned into a wonderful fun-filled day!
Although Renee & Kyle currently live in San Jose, CA, they decided to host their wedding back home in Illinois with their family and close friends. The ceremony was held at the Bluejacket Memorial Chapel on the Great Lakes Naval Base in North Chicago, IL. With its tall ceilings and ornate light fixtures, it provided the most pristine backdrop for this memorable occasion. Surrounded by their family and close friends, Renee & Kyle vowed themselves to one another and lit a unity candle to symbolize their two lives joining together as one. Soon after, we headed outdoors for bridal portraits then over to the reception hall to celebrate! The reception was held at Port O'Call Banquet Hall overlooking Lake Michigan where, along with their guest, Kyle & Renee laughed and danced the night away.
Many thanks to the amazing team who brought this celebration to life...
