Chicago Botanic Garden Wedding by Elena Bazini.
Natalie and Caleb’s Chicago Botanic Garden wedding was a highlight of our summer. You might remember their engagement shoot if you follow my blog. They were the ones who popped a bottle of champagne in Christmas onesie pajamas? They are actually pretty unforgettable. Over the course of their engagement I got to know them better, and I knew this one was going to be a stunner. Long story short: these two are so in love. Watching them you can’t help but smile.
This day was fabulous. From the sheer gorgeousness of the Chicago Botanic Garden, to Natalie & Caleb’s wonderful and funny families and friends. We dodged a rainstorm and pulled off one of the most beautiful wedding ceremonies I’ve ever seen. These two jumped waterfalls, slow danced among towering hedges, and swayed with the willows, just because I asked. These are some of my favorite photos of all time. I can’t thank Natalie and Caleb enough for being a joy to work with. Thank you to Jaci Weber, wedding planner extraordinaire, for making this introduction. Congratulations to this beautiful couple and their families. This was a day for the books! xo- Elena & David

Read what Natalie & Caleb had to say about Elena Bazini Photography:
“Elena was wonderful. When we first met her, we quickly agreed to work with her simply because of her sweet and comforting personality. She made us feel at ease in front of a camera, which can easily be awkward if you aren’t used to being photographed all day (most of us aren’t!). Our first shoot with her was for our engagement photos, which was just so much fun. We got lucky and had snowy weather, which Elena captured perfectly. And the wedding photos are off the charts. I never imagined having memories captured so beautifully. I honestly feel like I’m reliving my wedding day in an even better version when I look through the photos from Elena! In addition to being exceptionally talented, Elena is professional, responsive, and truly loves what she does. She is wonderful to work with and will give you the best photos for your wedding!”
