Lilacia Park, in Lombard, is one of Michelle’s favorite haunts so she and Åke decided to have their wedding ceremony there. Åke got all choked up as Michelle walked down the grass aisle. Their friend, Brian Morgan, pulled a double duty as both officiant and florist. After a short and sweet ceremony, we strolled around the park to take some portraits and then headed to the hotel bar where the guests were sipping some cocktails. Meanwhile, the final touches were being made to Michelle’s sister’s backyard…where the party was about to blow up! Åke’s family came in all the way from Sweden to attend the wedding and they brought some strong Swedish booze with them! Everybody toasted in glasses that Åke engraved his and Michelle’s initials into and the cake was cut…..even stabbed! The party moved on over to the dance floor where things got wild and a little bit wet (it was raining outside of the tent). One hell of fun night and a great party to shoot!
