Bear Cave Lake Elopement // Chris & Amanda

Situated out in Plainfield, Illinois, lies a beautiful little venue called Bear Cave Lake! They host weddings and events here and my goodness is it rustic and beautiful! I highly recommend this location for anyone planning a wedding! This was a styled shoot where local vendors came together to create an amazing, boho styled, whimsical outdoor shoot with these two amazing humans! My hopes are that this blog post can be used for some inspiration for couples who want to find some amazing vendors in the midwest area, as well as get a feel for what Bear Cave Lake grounds look like if you were to have a wedding there! It has a very outdoorsy, natural feel to it with tons of scenic spots for photos and guests to view and enjoy! The venue is kind of out in the middle of nowhere which is nice, as it makes you feel like you have your own secluded plot of land for your special day. Venue grounds are clean, well kept, and full of beautiful little trails around the mini-lake that is in the center of the venue. There is one main wood and rustic styled house where the ceremony and dinner can take place. It is spacious, unique, and truly one . of a kind! Truly, I had the best time working on this shoot and loved the dreamy airstream flower filled day that we all worked so hard to create. Are you currently planning your midwest wedding, or a wedding out in the Chicago suburbs? Look no further, and look into the beautiful venue that is Bear Cave Lake!
