Regina & Jon

Swooooooooooon! ♥ Catherine Dean for BHLDN on this naturally gorgeous bride. Such a treat that the weather turned out this beautiful for an outdoor wedding in September. We were able to sneak off to shoot in an open prairie at the edge of the Glen Club golf course for the first look. The energy between Regina & Jon is so genuine and love-filled, the sort of marriage that you know is a celebration of a time-honored friendship. Jewish traditions included a beautiful lace chuppah, an artful ketubah, breaking of the glass, challah, and later in the evening the Hora. Jon's father performed on acoustic guitar during dinner, and the mother-son dance was a riot ~ head-banging to "I Love Rock 'N Roll" by Joan Jett. Sunflowers, orchids, birch bark, hand-beaded evil eyes, and geode slices... yes please. Mazel Tov ♥
