Recently I had a true pleasure of documenting Vanessa’s and Glenn’s wedding at Armour House in Lake Forest. From the moment we met to discuss their wedding photography vision, it felt like an amazing fit. Glenn and Vanessa both have funny, and ongoing personalities, and I knew that capturing this would endless fun.

How did He Propose

Vanessa and Glenn met at the bar in downtown Palatine in 2014. After a few years of dating, Glenn decided to propose while they were visiting friends at their lake house in Wisconsin. They had a photoshoot scheduled, and while taking photos on the dock, Glenn went down on one knee and proposed.

Armour House Wedding Venue

Vanessa and Glenn choose to have their wedding at Armour House, an enchanting yet modern facility  in Lake Forest. Every wedding we photographed here had a fairytale feel to it. The venue is surrounded by amazing grounds and landscapes, providing amazing canvas for wedding photography, and stunning images of couples. If you are looking for ALL in one, Armour House it is. From getting ready, to reception, there is never a need to leave the site, leaving you with plenty of time to slow down, and truly enjoy your wedding day to the fullest. Meticulously maintained gardens around the venue, are a perfect location for amazing and creative photography, and when you add pagoda to all of it.
About 200 feet into the garden, is where couples take vows and the ceremony takes place. With fountain in the back, you can’t think of a better backdrop for your wedding images! Add a beautiful Pagoda to the mix and you truly can’t beat this place.

What About That Staircase

The famous staircase at the Armour House is something you can’t miss! Situated in the reception room it ads a perfect fairy tale touch to your wedding. This staircase was built by original owner Jonathan Armour with the primary purpose in mind that their daughter, would descend the curving stairway on her wedding day, which she did in 1921. The staircase was a highlight of every wedding at Armour House we photographed.
