Elegant Evanston Wedding at Hotel Orrington Malori and Tyler


If you’re a lover of white, blues, and grays like I am, then you’re in luck! This wedding is simply a dream!  Malori and Tyler’s wedding day was filled with the most elegant and romantic details that were perfectly put together by Kelly with Five Grain Events. Tyler is an entrepreneur and just created a company in which he will sell Italian leather mens dress shoes. All of the groomsmen’s shoes were from his new company and they looked amazing! I truly adored the simplicity in Malori’s getting ready details and the invitation suite they chose for their wedding. Her all lace dress is to die for!

They had the most beautiful wedding ceremony at the First Presbyterian Church in Evanston, where the sanctuary aisle was lined with lit candlesticks. I absolutely loved the way the candles created such a peaceful and joyful ambiance. The musical talent of the singers and words from the preacher left many in tears as they watched Malori and Tyler say their vows to one another.

Later that evening, they celebrated their reception at the Hotel Orrington. The bridal party had everyone laughing, cheering on their feet, and dancing along with them as they entered the party. The tables were decorated with classic all white details, gold chargers and paired with gold chiavari chairs. The dance floor was never empty thanks to the amazingly talented band, Sway Chicago! My favorite part of the reception was probably was the money dance! It was SO much fun to photograph!

Lastly, I just want to say congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Kirsch! You guys are so amazingly sweet. I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to know you guys more and to photograph such a beautiful love story!
