The Wedding of Rachel + Jim at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, IL

In the lush surroundings of Cantigny Park in Wheaton, Illinois, Fox + Ivory had the delightful opportunity to photograph the beautiful wedding of Rachel and Jim. Our team, known for our candid and heartfelt approach, was perfectly suited to capture the essence of this special day amidst the park’s renowned gardens and majestic landscapes. From the serene walkways lined with vibrant blooms to the elegant, soft-lit reception held in the park’s grand event spaces, every moment was a picturesque scene waiting to be captured.

The day began under a bright blue sky, with gentle breezes weaving through the trees, setting a tranquil tone as guests arrived. Rachel and Jim’s ceremony was a heartfelt affair, set against the backdrop of Cantigny’s iconic fountains and meticulously groomed gardens. Our photographers employed their signature blend of 80% documentary-style photography with 20% direction, ensuring the couple’s emotions and the solemnity of the ceremony were preserved authentically. These spontaneous, unscripted moments, from the exchange of vows to the joyful smiles of friends and family, were captured with precision and artistry.

As the sun dipped lower in the sky, the celebration transitioned into an evening of laughter and dancing. Fox + Ivory’s photographers moved seamlessly through the event, documenting the beautifully detailed settings—from the floral arrangements to the twinkling lights that adorned the reception area. The highlight of our coverage was the couple’s first dance, shot with a focus on their expressions of love and joy, creating a lasting memory for them to cherish.
