A couple weeks ago I second shot for Kenny Nakai for the wedding of Dawn and Richard, and since he just posted about it, I figured I should get on that too! This was an amazing wedding, with the ceremony being held at the Ss. Cyril & Methodius Church in Lemont, IL. From there we went downtown to the gorgeous Sofitel Hotel for their reception. I talked about it this before, but Dawn had EVERYTHING consistent, which set it up for beautiful night and fun pictures.

The bridesmaids and flower girl carried these hanging boquets, which I hear is less painful on the arms for a wedding:

Speaking of gorgeous, they traveled in style with a classic black and red Rolls Royce, and here’s a glimpse from the drive into downtown:

They hired the 80’s band “The Brat Pack” to dance the night away, and boy was it a blast! Although I was but a few years old during those days, I feel like I grew up on these songs, and these guys were awesome! Everyone had a blast on the dance floor:
