Galena IL – St. Mary's & Oak Hill | Catholic & Jewish Ceremony

Jewish Ceremony under Chuppah

This is the wedding day of Nicole & Harris. I had a particular interest in photographing their wedding having come from a mixed faith home of Christianity and Judaism. Seeing people come together for a wedding is one of my favorite aspect of this career because a wedding is a celebration. 

This was a tour de Galena... beginning with preparations at a house at the Territory where the couple had been staying. They  chose to take photos separately before their first ceremony at St. Mary's. After the Catholic mass Nicole and Harris ventured to Oak Hill weddings for their cocktail hours and second service, a Jewish ceremony under the Chuppah. The reception followed with delicious food and great dancing. Congrats Nicole & Harris!
