The Westin Northwest Chicago Wedding of Cody & Meaghan


It was my first time at The Westin in Itasca and what a magical day it was. Meaghan & Cody got married this past Saturday on a beautiful early fall day. With bright blue skies, fluffy clouds, a gentle breeze, and a glow filled sun it was the kind of day any couple would dream about.

While I was going through their images, I kept thinking to myself “these two are really happy”. In the way their smiles shown and the joy they exuded, it was truly a honor to have photographed their love. The energy from their friends and family was truly electric. From their wedding party down to the packed dance floor, it’s safe to say everyone was ecstatic to be celebrating these two.

The Westin is a large property. With a winding path throughout & beautiful trees, it was the perfect location for these two. Around every turn were stunning locations that made my job so unbelievably easy. I am partial to weddings that all occur at one spot. The smoothness and lack of stress is always blatantly obvious. That lack of stress allowed for Meaghan & Cody to truly celebrate their day. It allowed them to have pockets of down time and to be present with the people they love most.
