christina&mike|married // bristol court, mount prospect


chicago wedding photographers, bristol court wedding

slowly but surely we are catching up! finally the blog post for christina&mike! christina may well be the most genuinely sweet bride we have ever had the pleasure of working with. it’s easy to see how mike could fall head over heels in love with her.;)we started the day with an awesome first look at a brand new location for us. then it was off to an incredibly moving ceremony and a super fun dance party at the reception!

one of my favorite unique ideas from this wedding was that instead of clinking glasses at the reception to make the bride&groom kiss – they had to do something special. whether it was give an impromptu toast, recite the school pledge (since christina is a teacher!), or show off some awesome dance moves. nothing gets the party started like a whole table full of guests teaching everyone how to dougie.

to christina&mike – we were so happy to have been a part of your wedding. thank you for choosing us to capture all those moments!

ayrielle&jeff|married // medinah country club, medinah


chicago wedding photographers, medinah wedding photographers, medinah country club wedding

every once in awhile you get a wedding that goes so perfectly, you think you might be in a movie. ayrielle&jeff definitely had one of those weddings! every little thing just fell into place that day. and not only are these two some of the most genuinely nice people you could meet, they’re also completely flipping adorable together. i remember thinking at their engagement session that photographing their wedding was going to be super fun and soooo easy (look at them!), and i was not wrong.:D

this was also our first time at the medinah country club, and omgshutupthisplaceissogorgeous. nothing makes us happier than a location where literally every place you look is another awesome photo opportunity. it was literally like a dream come true. (they also had mcdonald’s for a late night snack, and let’s be honest – that really is the best part of any wedding.;)hehe.)

to ayrielle&jeff – as if we haven’t made our feelings perfectly clear already, you guys are amazing! thank you so much for having us as a part of your wedding.

chicago wedding photographers, champaign urbana wedding photographers, university of illinois wedding photographers

we often joke that everyone we photograph has a secret model inside of them dying to get out. well in the case of this wedding, we had actual models in the bridal party. no pressure, right?;)erika and her fabulous siblings have all modeled professionally, and it was so much fun to get to work with them at this wedding! on top of that, this was our first wedding down at the university of illinois campus! i’ve never been to a big ten campus before, so i was particularly excited about this one.

erika&chris planned a positively gorgeous wedding, chock full of awesome photo-op locations and perfect details. my personal favorite parts of the day? in no particular order – erika&chris’s first look at their home; erika’s drop-dead-gorgeous dress; and the looks on erika’s brother’s faces as she walked down the aisle. (seriously, it was so cute.)

erika&chris – thank you so much for having us as a part of your day! it couldn’t have been more perfect!
