Elizabeth + Jim: The Reception

The first post was about Elizabeth’s and Jim’s morning and ceremony. Now it’s time for the party!

All photos by ZR photography.



I loved how well the bridesmaids dresses and shoes went together. They were such a fun option!

After the church, the group went to Olive Park for great skyline shots.




While everyone was beginning to enjoy the cocktail hour, E+J took a moment to get great shots on La Salle Street Bridge.

During the cocktail hour, nearly all of the guests enjoyed the outdoor cocktail hour with great drinks, food and weather!

During the cocktail hour, guests signed the photo book which included photos from their engagement.


Before entering the reception, all the guests were able to talk with E+J in a receiving line. I don’t see these very often, but it’s a great opportunity for the bride and groom to visit with every guest.

I love baby’s breath!


Elizabeth’s centerpieces went perfectly with the decor at Fulton’s. There was a mix of tall and short arrangements.



The cake decorated with purple flowers.

Finally, it is time to eat and party!

Following the first course, the bride and groom danced their first dance.

Then it was time for everyone to join in the fun. I have never seen such a packed dance floor all night! High Society Orchestra were amazing!

Elizabeth and Jim stayed until the party stopped! The band had everyone surround them to dance the last song of the night.

I am so glad to have worked with these two and wish them all the best!
