Lesia and Tom {A Ukranian Wedding at Eagle Ridge}

Oh my gosh do we have some prettiness for you today!  November was an awesome month for weddings last year and the couples we had took full advantage of the surrounding beauty to help us create some of our most favorite images of the year! Lesia and Tom hosted their Ukranian wedding ceremony at a church in downtown Galena, with their reception being held at Eagle Ridge Resort.  Because Lesia’s family is Ukranian, they had Ukranian traditions throughout the day which made it such a unique day.  It was our first Ukranian wedding and we hope it isn’t the last because we loved it!!!

Lesia started the day getting ready in one of the lower rooms at the main lodge of Eagle Ridge.  She had some of her favorite people from Chicago come over to help her and her ladies with their hair and makeup.  Bride Getting Ready, Bride, Makeup, Hairstyle, Wedding Details, UnPosed Photography, Eagle Ridge Resort, Galena IL Bride Getting Ready, Bride, Makeup, Hairstyle, Wedding Details, UnPosed Photography, Eagle Ridge Resort, Galena IL
