Katie and Mike Married – Wilder Mansion, Elmhurst, Ill

Katie and Mike were married on a beautiful spring day in May at Wilder Mansion in Elmhurst, Illinois a western suburb of Chicago. I’ve dubbed this wedding an English Garden wedding not only because the venue’s gardens inspired me too (just look at the first photo with the cute little brick cottage!) but Mike is from England, where he and Katie met! Katie was living there abroad while in college I believe and they met while out one night with friends at a pub.

The grounds of Wilder Mansion has some beautiful buildings to work with for photos. The green house lights up at night so we were able to get this beautiful image.
