City Winery in Chicago with Jean and Brian

It's hard to start a blog post without saying this, I love the couples I work with! Jean and Brian are the sweetest, but one of the best parts about them(and I know they would agree!) is their ridiculous dog Baxter. He's such a lovable one eyed beagle. But seriously if you want to to obsess about how great your wedding is, just be sure to have your dog hang out with us on your wedding day.

Besides Baxter, Jean and Brian had a gorgeous ceremony and reception at City Winery back in Chicago and I can't thank them enough for bringing me out to the midwest to share in their celebration!

Kristin & Shane - Art Institute of Chicago

I think I've rewritten this first sentence about 5 times now. Sometimes there's so much to say about a wedding that I have a hard time figuring out where to even start. Kristin and Shane were the perfect way for Emmalee(the most amazing assistant ever) and I to wrap up the wedding season! It's not everyday you get to photograph two ridiculous people in one of the coolest snow storms ever and then run around one of the best art museums in the world. Besides the locations I love this wedding! Shane and Kristin and so goofy it couldn't have been any better!

Check out all the photos below and see some amazing dance moves! 

Courtney and Catherine - Chicago Wedding

Catherine and Courtney are on the opposite side of the moving spectrum from Julia and I. As we're gearing up for our move from Chicago to Seattle, Catherine and Courtney moved from Seattle to Chicago! Don't worry we didn't hold it against them. We still managed to get together to enjoy some of the finer brands on fried chicken around Chicago before their wedding! 

I almost forgot, I even photographed their wedding!

Erin and Tom - Downtown Wedding

I have to say I feel pretty lucky right now. I've been going back through all my weddings from the past year to get ready for blogging season. I am amazed by the sheer number of amazing clients I've been able to work with! 

Erin and Tom are right up there at the top! Their wedding at St James in Chicago and then reception at Women's Athletic Club was absolutely perfect.
