Hillary + Bill at Glen View Club

Beyond Chicago, Weddings

 

An Elegant Glen View Club Wedding at the Peak of Fall Color

Hillary and Bill’s wedding at Glen View Club was stylish, classic, and put together by an unparalleled team of wedding pros! Their lush, seasonal floral palette perfectly complemented the atmosphere of the beautiful Glen View club as the trees were changing last October, which was a particularly gorgeous year for foliage. We’ve been in love with Olivia Leigh‘s captures of the day since the moment we laid eyes on the gallery, and are so excited to share some highlights with you below! 

 

 

An Unexpected Journey Through 2020 Together

Jen knew that she was meant to work with this couple for two reasons:

1. They were a referral from Olivia Leigh — not only one of the most talented photographers in the biz but also one of the funniest. Any couple Oliva sends our way turns out to have a fabulous sense of humor!

2. The couple’s email name was simply “Billary” and, we’re sorry, but we still love a good couple name combo. The deal was sealed after they all met and laughed over coffee — Jen was going to step in two months out from their wedding to help coordinate all the details.

Or, so they thought. Shortly after hiring Jen, March 2020 rolled around and it became apparent that they would be navigating the COVID landscape together. Thankfully, the couple was fortunate to be able to gather together safely 40 of their nearest and dearest to say their “I dos” on a beautiful, sunny October day. Though their original guest list was cut dramatically, they found ways to make those guests feel included from afar with thoughtful gestures and a livestream of the main event.

 

 

Hillary’s Kind Words: 

“Jen and her team were amazing! Navigating wedding planning during COVID introduced some unexpected challenges to say the least and Jen was the perfect partner and counsel through it all. She helped us weigh our options and decisions during the planning months, she was extremely detailed while coordinating the final touches, and she was a calm, organized presence on the wedding day. We could not have had our perfect wedding without Jen and her team.” — Read Hillary’s review and more on The Knot!

 

 

We had a great time working with you, Hillary and Bill, and wish you all the best in the years to come!
