Cody & Sharon

Oglesby, Illinois -- Starved Rock State Park, Starved Rock Lodge

An outdoor wedding that wasn't.  The forecast was for rain and more rain, so the bride and groom had to call it for indoors.  I scouted some alternate, indoor spaces for our formals, but when the weather cleared up we snuck outside for some photos out there as well.  I was so happy to shoot a wedding at the Starved Rock Lodge.  Being a nature-loving Chicagoan, I end up there a few times a year when I'm jonesing for a little elevation.  Last winter I was plodding along the banks of the Illinois river to photograph bald eagles (see photoblog).  The wedding was a blast and Cody and Sharon were great to work with.
