Mayslake Peabody Estate Wedding | Chicago Wedding Photographer | Taylor + Heather

“Life is not so much about waiting for the storms to pass as it is about learning to dance in the rain.”

Taylor and Heather were the picture of grace when their wedding day dawned gray and stormy. We had planned to do outdoor portraits before their intimate ceremony at Portiuncula Chapel at the gorgeous Mayslake Peabody Estate but luckily, the mansion was full of nooks and crannies with perfect moody light.

When I asked Taylor why they chose Mayslake Peabody Estate as their wedding venue, she said, “I always loved those classic church exits, this chapel allowed us to have that while still being able to write our own ceremony. And the little bit of nature surrounding it allows us to have space to ground ourselves. Also we're not Catholic but the story of this chapel and St Francis of Assisi being called to serve the poor is very fitting for our social worker/teacher lives”
