Lindsay and Rafael's Hotel Baker wedding in St. Charles, IL was everything we dreamed it would be when we first met these two. It was the perfect spot for them to tie the knot because the hotel is cool, historic, and a little bit rock and roll! Just like Lindsay and Rafael. And we're pretty sure it features one of, if not the oldest lighted dance floor in the world.

Their Princess Bride theme was perfect for their Hotel Baker wedding as it was unique and had an extra special meaning because a few years back, when Rafi asked Lindsay if she wanted to go "ring shopping" for their anniversary, she replied, "As you with!"

We loved so much about this day, but we definitely appreciate that their wedding was all in one location. Eliminating travel always makes for lower stress and enjoyable day for everyone.

Lindsay got ready in the Presidential Suite of the hotel and then just walked downstairs to the Rose Garden for her first look with Rafi where they also exchanged private letters.

The ceremony was filled with happy tears and big laughs as the ups and downs of their almost 15 year relationship. We especially loved the special moments this couples shared with their friends and family.

Special thanks to Heidi from Blanchard Events who was so kind and nice to talk to at dinner. Now, enjoy some of our favorite moments of the day.

We hope you enjoyed this wedding, if you want to see more of our recent work, check out this blog.
