marianne&ian|married // cantigny gardens, wheaton

if ever there was a couple that i wish we could shrink down to miniature size and keep them with us all the time, it’s got to be these two. we must be the luckiest photographers in the world, because i swear to you that all of our couples are 100%, unequivocally, fantastically and wonderfully in love with each other. and THEN there’s marianne&ian, who took that bar and then smashed it to pieces. 😛

we see a lot of happy faces on wedding days, and this crowd did not disappoint. there was a ton of laughter, a few tears (of joy, of course!), and possibly the most fantastic wedding cake of all time. to top it all off, they got married at cantigny gardens in wheaton, which we can’t recommend enough! these guys really know how to put on a show, and the whole wedding was flawless – down to the smallest details.

to marianne&ian – this will sound silly, but i’m all teary looking at your photos! you guys are fantastic, and we wish you nothing but joy and happiness. thank you so much for letting us be a part of your day!

    AMAZING! Thank you guys so so much! And actually I couldn't track down a good fishing cake topper so I just made it myself! ( inspired of course by this amazing etsy artist: http://www.flickr.com/photos/thesmallobject/sets/72157606478635653/).

    Fantastic! I love the picture with the yellow shoes. The cake topper is adorable. The best part is the last photo with the word Love what a Awesome shot. As usual I always love the slide shows you always pick great music to go with it!
