The Farm at Dover Barn Wedding Photographer Teaser Photos

Melissa + Andrew planned the most amazing wedding at a barn just north of Illinois in Wisconsin! The Farm at Dover not only had a gorgeous barn for the wedding reception, but the facilities and the decor were outstanding! As a Chicago wedding photographer, I always enjoy shooting an outdoor wedding, but The Farm at Dover definitely exceeded my expectation! I have so many more photos to share, but I wanted to quickly publish these teaser pictures!

Here’s a photo of the barn set up for the reception – I simply love all the light leaking through on all the walls. It makes for a stunning photograph!

Best Chicago Luxury Wedding Photos From Hyatt Regency Chicago 

It hasn’t even been a week yet, but I’m posting Dana + Jay’s wedding photos on the blog! I met Dana + Jay back in 2014 when I was the wedding photographer for Dayna + Todd’s Chicago wedding! I would then see them again at Phil + Maggie’s wedding and in California for Amy + Tomer! You can look online for reviews on photographers, but the greatest compliment I receive is when a couple refers me to their friends – so thank you guys!

I posted a few wedding teaser photos earlier this week, and Dana left this note on my Nakai Photography Instagram!

Kenny you are the best in the biz. It’s as simple as that!!! If this is an preview of what is to come, I really can’t even wait!!!! Thank you for capturing our special day!!!!

Photographer’s Tip: Looking for a sense of time and place. Sometimes you get lucky with the clock tower (time) on the Wrigley Building (place – downtown Chicago)!

Photographer’s Tip: An image with bold lines can often look better in black and white! I also love how the strong lines are juxtaposed with the beauty of the couple and her soft and luxurious gown!

These centerpieces were so tall…they make the chairs look so tiny! Beautiful job by Epic Events!
