Getting Married in Illinois

In northern Illinois, wedding photos taken in one of the premier Japanese gardens in the country will depict the peace and serenity of this beautiful site. Sparkling waterfalls, formal gardens, koi ponds and a teahouse make beautiful backdrops for the Illinois wedding photojournalist. In the heart of Chicago, which sets a lakeside view of Lake Michigan, couples will find both entertainment and elegance. Chicago's, Millennium Park, offers spacious areas surrounded by the sites and sounds of the city, making for ideal wedding photography opportunities. In the river country of western Illinois, wedding photography prospects include scenic sites along the Mississippi River. The Wildlife Prairie State Park or Spoon River Valley are just a couple of the many interesting locations this river country has to offer. With the Shawnee National Forest in Southern Illinois, wedding photographers will enjoy the many acres of beautiful forest to use as a backdrop for photographs. If your Illinois wedding will be in the Central part of the state, there are many interesting, historic sites. This part of the state features the State Capitol, Springfield, the famous Route 66, and even Amish Villages. Because of the rich and diverse culture of Illinois, wedding locations throughout the state offer something for everyone.
