once upon a time, two wedding photographers moved to chicago and proceeded to visit every wedding-related vendor from chicago to naperville and introduce themselves. as fate would have it, we happened to visit papier girl in naperville, where jen happened to be working. we chatted for a few minutes and jen put out a stack of cards on the counter. fast forward about 7 months and we get an email from jen saying that her boyfriend matt had FINALLY proposed. and that was how it all started!
jen&matt are honestly one of the funniest couples we’ve gotten to work with. the entire time we were there, matt had me laughing hysterically. but the best part was watching the two of them together. they’re just flat out adorable. the wedding was pretty much perfect with all my favorite things: awesome bridal party, stunning details, mouth-watering food, and surprise mcdonald’s cheeseburgers at 11pm! (and those who know me, know that surprise mcdonald’s cheeseburgers are pretty much my favorite thing in the world just after my puppy and tony… maybe not necessarily in that order… hehe.)
to jen&matt – we wish you two all the happiness in the world! thank you for letting us capture all the fun of your day!
