Korean Parents Line Dancing at the Reception! – Elyse + Dave’s Wedding

It was a wedding that will be talked about for years. The dance floor opened with 20+ Korean parents LINE DANCING! ?!?!?! Un. Heard. Of. All the ‘younger’ people were stunned. You have to know that ‘most’ Korean parents are not the type to dance at a wedding…and when they took over the floor…the whole room stopped to watch this ‘older’ generation tear it up!

Some people remember weddings based on the venue. Some….the vows. This will forever be remembered as the wedding where the parents line danced for 40+ minutes.

Ceremony: The Village Presbyterian Church
1300 Shermer Rd
Northbrook, IL 60062

Reception: The Glen Club
2901 West Lake Ave
Glenview, IL 60026

Wedding Cake: Rolf’s Patisserie

Earlier this year, we had an engagement photoshoot at Millennium Park…Here is of my favorites from the day…click here to see more Millennium Park engagement photos!

To start off their wedding photos, I want to share my favorite photo from the day- I love the shapes, composition and color palette of this photo.

Dave and his brother being a little goofy

Love this shot of Dave as he has some last minute thoughts about Elyse-

Her wedding bouquet-

And lastly…a photo of the bride!

If you know Elyse, you know she loves to laugh and smile…I think this photo captures that side of her well-

Since the The Glen Club is in ‘The Glen’ we took advantage of a couple of the scenic areas-

A photo of her beaming down the aisle!

The Village Presbyterian has some nice details…the stained glasswork is one feature I like-

The tears in her eyes-

This very well may be Dave’s favorite photo from the day…the one where they are driving away in his BMW M3

Once we got to the Glen Club, the sun began to set…and we HAD to grab some photos with the gorgeous ‘yummy’ light-

The Glen Club set up looked great-

I love Rolf’s Patisserie – not only do they make great looking wedding cakes…they taste good too!

Ahh yes….the infamous line dancing! Proof that it really did happen! I anticipate enrollment to this group to increase once people realize just how much fun line dancing can be! =)

Thanks you guys for having me as your wedding photographer! It was a wonderful celebration and I am so happy for you both!

with love,
