Mariah & George! oxox

Mariah & George! I shot so many fun 2013 weddings that I should be blogging!!! I’m going to try to get up as many as I can these cold cold months when i’m not as busy. I really loved this Mariah & George wedding–they got married at a farm about 45 minutes outside of Chicago. While driving out there I did not expect there to be such a hidden gem amongst the Panara Breads and Starbucks. Then Boom!!! surprise! Cute little farm!!! Mariah & George are friends with my gal pal Sopha. We shoot the wedding along with another one of their photo friends Prince. It felt a bit paparazzi but it was fun hanging out with the photo team.

Mariah & George did a great job making their wedding soooo beautiful! And And And they are cute & crazy in love. What else could I ask for? Nothing. That’s right. Nothing. oxox

Noel & Jason :: August 17, 2013. it’s a wedding. it’s cute. of course.

Noel & Jason are nice & normal. Which is so great. I see them at the bar sometimes and they are nice and normal. I also have this pet peeve thing when people want to be weird. Makes me crazy. I will save all this for another blog post. Just real quick though–I’m sorry to be the one to let you know that you are not that weird.

I know Jason from doing photos for the Isthmus and also when I see him in the world he is a delight to talk to. I got to know Noel after booking their weeding and how lucky am I. Very. The wedding was at the Olbrich gardens and the reception at the Olin Park. Olin Park might be my new favorite reception site.  In between the wedding & reception we stopped down at the Great Dane for photos and a beer break. Everyday should have a mid afternoon beer break.

Noel & Jason love all their friends. I know this from watching them at their reception. I like that.

The weather was great. The people were nice. Perfect Day.

06.06.13 :: Ella & Ryan. hearts.

I had been looking to forward to shooting Ella & Ryan’s wedding ever since they booked me. They are some nice & solid folks! Ella told me how she wasn’t going to have time to cry cause her friend Kelly would be cracking her up the whole time! This Kelly did not disappoint. She’s the gal who tucks her dress into her spanks. That is funny. Ella did manage to have cute bride tears though!  Ella & Ryan have been together for like 100 years. Or maybe something more like 7 or 8 so it was so cute to see how nervous Ryan was before the ceremony. I loved the venue (the Overture) and the guests and the beer I drank after I was done shooting. (responsible wedding photographer!)

July 25, 2012 :: Cynthia & Justin!!!

I really love it when Justin & Cynthia get married. This wedding was great & perfect. Lawn games, music, and a DIY bar. I’ve known Cynthia for a couple years and she’s one of the nicest & easy going gals I know. Just goes with it–pleasant & nice. This is exactly how the wedding felt. No big to do’s. She did do a dress change from the wedding to reception-that was her diva moment. HA!

The bands that played at the wedding were delightful. Justin was looking very handsome in his suit. Shane gave a funny speech. The twice baked pototes from the 4&20 were delicious. The IPA a friend made was lovely. All the friends were looking super cute. Best day ever.
