Yuelma and Freddy’s Church wedding in Chicago was nothing short of a dream wedding. The two spent their morning apart getting ready with their wedding parties for their big day. You could feel the excitement in the air as the two prepped for their wedding day!
Upon arriving at the church Yuelma hid away with her bridesmaids so Freddy wouldn’t cross paths with her before the ceremony. Surrounded by their family and friends at Lady of Tepeyac Church in Chicago Illinois, they shared a beautiful ceremony as Lady of Tepeyac Church was such a gorgeous setting for Yuelma and Freddy’s Wedding.
They opted to go without a first look which is such a cool tradition to do on your wedding day. If you don’t mind the anticipation, waiting to see your spouse till the ceremony creates such an emotional moment once you do finally see them, and when doing it during the ceremony, you are able to share this beautiful moment with your family and friends there to support you. Yuelma and Freddy got to experience this for their wedding ceremony and you could feel the love all throughout the beautiful Chicago church.
After their wedding ceremony at Lady of Tepeyac church, we headed over to their reception space the Amor Banquet which is located in Streamwood Illinois, a nearby suburb of Chicago. Because of their timeline we decided to take their wedding photos at the Amor Banquet right before their reception began. I LOVE a bare background look for wedding portraits though so we made what we had available work for us! It is SO important to have a photographer that’s able to scope out the perfect spots for your wedding portraits. I always make sure to come into my weddings with a plan and some basic location scouting so on the day we are good to go! We were able to take some couples portraits and wedding party photos in front and of course we had to include a bad bish pose!
Yuelma and Freddy’s reception was SO much fun to be a part of! Seriously it was such a fun mix of tradition, love and energy that you couldn’t help but smile. The Amor Banquet has this really awesome pink lighting that gives the whole reception such a unique vibe and really sets the mood for the festivities! Their friends had SO MUCH ENERGY, seriously ultimate hype crew vibes. They also opted for a live band, Banda La Devaztadora, and they really brought the energy. At one point Yuelma and Freddy were standing up on two chairs and their family and friends were running around them in circles! We had SO much fun celebrating them!
I’m so glad I got to be a part of Yuelma and Freddy’s Chicago wedding, between the gorgeous church ceremony, incredibly fun reception, and all the moments in between there was just so much to love. And to top the night of we carried on my tradition of sending off the newly weds with a tequila shot!
