Jewel Toned Winter Wedding at Danada House | Jade & Spencer

Jade and Spencer’s winter wedding at Danada House was full of beautiful winter light, cozy fur wraps, and a gorgeous jewel toned color palette. In other words, it was an absolutely beautiful way to close out my season! Keep on scrolling for some of my favorite moments from their day!


Danada House is an absolutely stunning place for prep photos. The house is completely adorable and the light is a dream. Everyone was so relaxed and excited for the day – we really couldn’t have asked for a smoother time of prep!

Sunny Winter Portraits

Danada House was the perfect rustic backdrop for portraits, especially with the stunning sunlight we were lucky enough to have. Jade and Spencer shared a sweet first look followed by portraits elsewhere on the grounds. Their style was impeccable and perfect for the winter weather. Don’t let that sun and lack of snow fool you, it was a COLD day. Jade took the opportunity to accessorize with a gorgeous fur wrap that was Spencer’s grandmother’s. Spencer added a long black pea coat to winterize his ensemble.

After some solo portraits, their friends joined in for some wedding party fun. I loved the mixed jewel toned dresses the girls wore. And I LOVE that they each had their own wraps to help keep them warm. This is such an important piece to successful photos in the midst of winter and I think they are so stylish!

The ceremony was held at St. Pius X in Lombard. It was such a sweet celebration of Jade and Spencer’s love and it was so much fun seeing how many people turned out to share in the occasion. It was so clear to me how loved these two truly are!

Party Time

The reception was full of sweet speeches, even sweeter first dances, and a rockin’ dance floor complete with an outfit change for the bride! I love her simple, fitted reception gown and that beautiful open-back silhouette!

Oh, and if you think you see some familiar faces in the crowd, you are RIGHT! Jade and Spencer are friends with Amanda and Trevor, one of my sweet couples from 2017! It was so so special for me to get to see them again! And how perfect that we were reunited in the same place we did their engagement photos?!

Jade and Spencer, thank you so much for including me in your day! It was truly beautiful and I can’t wait to finish up your gallery! xo
