Lexi's Bat Mitzvah | Northmoor Country Club | Highland Park


Event Planner: Reva Nathan & Associates
Event Design: HMR Designs
Venue: Northmoor Country Club
Entertainment: FLOW Entertainment
DJ: Dance All Night
Linens: BBJ Linens
Videographer: VDO Productions
Lighting: Frost Productions
Montage: Hourglass Films
Games: Record-A-Hit Entertainment

Meet the Aronin Family. Wow... is all I have to say! They are simply fabulous and they can sure throw a beautiful party! We were introduced to Lisa and Jeff through Reva Nathan, their event planner, two years ago when we photographed their daughter's, Ashley and Emily's B'Not Mitzvah. That was an incredible celebration and part of me wondered how they would ever top that party.

Well, between Lisa, Reva and Burt of HMR Designs there wasn't a detail overlooked. Lexi's Bat Mitzvah was "Hollywood" themed with everything from the red carpet entrance into Northmoor Country Club, to the silver Versailles chairs and the paparazzi greeting you at the "Welcome to LA" tour bus. The tent was decorated so beautifully with "LEXIWOOD" in giant vintage lights and huge palm trees towering over the dance floor. The pink and purple lights by Frost Productions gave the room true Hollywood glamor!

If anyone can plan bring your dream ideas for an event to life, you can't go wrong with Reva Nathan. She is amazing and very precise! We always enjoy working with her and Liz. She has a great team. And Burt and his creative team at HMR Designs is nothing less than exceptional. They thrive on design challenges and thinking outside the box. They can make anything happen so don't worry about dreaming big!

We can't say enough about FLOW Entertainment... they ALWAYS have the party dancing! The kids love them and I can honestly say the parents are out on the dance floor just as much as the kids. Truly entertainment as its best! Kareem is your man! Everyone from the DJ, Dance All Night, the creators of the montage, Hourglass Films to the games for the kids, Record-A-Hit, I would say Lexi's Bat Mitzvah was a success!

Thank you Lisa and Jeff for trusting us with your 3 beautiful daughter's Bat Mitzvahs! And thank you Ben Pancoast and Edward Weiland for assisting Bob. We couldn't have done it without you.

xoxo!

Family Fun Portrait Session | Kim & Greg


Wow, it's crazy how fast time goes by. We recently photographed Kim and Greg and their adorable daughter, Alexa. Oh, is she cute and with so much personality!!! Bob and I miss so much when our kids were this little. We met Kim and Greg in September of 2008 to discuss photographing their wedding and we hit it off. You can see their engagement session and their wedding right here.

I can't believe 6 years has passed since we first met. Kim and Greg, we wish you all the happiness in the world. It's beautiful to see the love you have for each other has grown so much since you're wedding day!

Enjoy!

~ Dawn

Lauren & Stephen | Chicago Wedding | The Standard Club


Event Planner: Reva Nathan & Associates
Venue: The Standard Club
Event Design: HMR Designs
Lighting: Frost Chicago
Linens: BBJ Linens
Event Rentals: Tablescapes
Entertainment: Rendezvous Music
Artist Drawing: Diane Bronstein
Makeup: Elise Brill
Videographer: VDO Productions
This is long overdue, I'm not sure where the time goes! Lauren and Stephen's wedding at The Standard Club. Their wedding was simply amazing with the most beautiful details planned by Reva Nathan & Associates.

They are such a fun couple beginning with their engagement session with their Chicago Blackhawks jerseys in the rain! Their wedding was just as much fun with all the love in the room surrounding them. Heffernan Morgan Ronsley did a fabulous job bringing their dream wedding to life!

From the lighting by Frost Chicago to the table linens by BBJ Linens and the entertainment by Rendezvous Music there wasn't a detailed missed. I really loved that Lauren and Stephen had an artist, Diane Bronstein, sketch a scene from their ceremony and display it at the reception. Perfection!

I hope that you enjoy the photos that Bob and our 2nd shooter, Ben Pancoast captured at their wedding! Ben, you did an amazing job helping Bob, thank you!

Lauren and Stephen, thank you for inviting us in to capture your wedding day. It was magical. Bob and I wish you a lifetime of happiness together!

xoxox!

Alex & Chris | Chicago Engagement Photography



Oh my gosh, how cute are Alex and Chris? WAY CUTE! I died when Alex's mom said that Chris was into boxing and that the boxing ring may be an option for their engagement session. And then when Alex agreed… I was like YES!!!! When Bob and I meet with our potential couples we always like to let them know that our style is all about the couple. Sure, we consider our photography timeless and classic with a fun, fresh twist. We are not formulaic and we, very much, like our photos to reflect who our clients are, not who Bob is as a photographer. These special events in peoples lives are about them, not us. So, when a fun shoot like Alex and Chris's engagement session comes up, we are always thrilled!!!

Bob, and our assistant who is also our daughter Alli, met them at Franklin Street Boxing Club Gym in Chicago where Alex boxed her soon to be husband and it was a TKO! Haha… seriously so cute, Alex in heels with her pink gloves! I love it!

They headed off to Eleven Lincoln Park, the cutest old school Jewish diner in Chicago! Sipping on a milkshake and hanging out in the candy shop made for some really cute photos! Then off to Chicago Union Station and Chicago North Avenue Beach for a crazy fun feather pillow fight! I just love that Alex and Chris were up for some fun!

We are beyond thrilled to be working with this family again, as we photographed their sister, Jillian's wedding to Brad in 2010 at the Chicago Hilton. Alex's parents, Debbie and Steve are so gracious and so fun… and we can't thank them enough for trusting us to capture their daughter's weddings! And a huge thank you to Reva Nathan for introducing us years ago to this wonderful family!

I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I did editing them!

Much love and blessings!

~ Dawn
