This Haley Mansion winter wedding was held on December 20th 2019 | Tony + Amor

The Haley Mansion winter wedding in Joliet IL is one of those bucket list wedding venues that all Chicagoland wedding photographers dream of shooting. Haley Mansion hosts hundreds of events and weddings every year. It’s historic ballroom looks amazing on your wedding pictures. Elegant chandeliers, stunning marble floors are my favorite aspect of Hayley Mansion. Beautiful glass panoramic view of gorgeous lush gardens and bright interior is just dream come trough for any natural light photographer. The white is such a special element and one of the reasons why I would shoot weddings at the The Haley Mansion every weekend if I could!

It was such a beautiful wedding!

All this was a fantastic background for Tony’s and Amor’s the Haley Mansion winter wedding. Which was was one to remember. I met Amor and Tony when I was wedding photographer of Amor’s sister Arvie & Marc at Cress Creek Country Club when she was one of Arvie’s bridesmaids. Amor and Tony were married last December just couple days before Christmas. We had some snow which you can see at the pictures. I just wish the day was a little longer 🙂 so we could shoot some more outside. They decided to host their winter wedding ceremony in the conservatory part of the venue which is centered under the magnificent skylight surrounded by 12-foot french windows that overlook the garden. Amor and Tony also did their first look at this location.


One of the standout elements of Amor and Tony’s wedding were the florals. The florist of this Haley Mansion winter wedding nocked out every floral element of that day! From the bouquets and boutonnieres to centerpieces greenery guests seating chart and welcome signs, I was speechless. I have to say that good florals (and having enough of them) are one of the best ways to bring life to any event. Final images from your wedding day will prove it. I basically loved everything about Amor and Tony’s Haley Mansion winter wedding day so I’ll let the photos do most of the talking for me! But trust me, I’ll be back again, The Haley Mansion!
