When these images taken at the Patrick Haley Mansion in Joliet, Illinois crossed our path, the smile on our faces grew as we scrolled. We seriously might have a total crush on Kelly + Matt. Elizabeth Greve Photography captured their special day so beautifully, we just know they were beyond excited with how their images turned out. She also took some time to find out how these two love birds met and its almost as cute as they are!
Elizabeth Greve Photography: Look up adorable in the wedding dictionary and you find Kelly and Matt. These two embody what every couple dreams of: true happiness and love. From their vibrant color palette to their detailed ceremony and reception, Kelly and Matt included enough details to create one unforgettable wedding day. They met in college at Indiana University. “We actually went to the same high school, but just didn’t know each other since Kelly was two years younger than me.” (according to Matt). “We ended up meeting each other at a party the first few weekends that Kelly was at school. Then 2nd semester we ran into each other on the bus while Kelly was going to look for apartments and decided to hang out, we never really stopped.” When I met these two for coffee to talk about their wedding details, the first thing I noticed was Kelly’s smile. It’s extremely contagious and by the way Matt looked at her constantly, I knew he agreed. They both wanted a day filled with all of their friends and family in one location, ceremony and reception, so that there was no travel and everyone could just enjoy themselves. When I asked them what their favorite thing was about their wedding, they responded with dancing. “The dance party was amazing. Everyone who came to the wedding seemed to be dancing at one point. It made us feel like our friends and family were having a really great time and enjoying the music and company. We always feel bad when we go to weddings and no one is dancing, so it was exciting to see everyone out there enjoying the night with us.”
This wedding was made possible with the help of these incredible vendors:
