I work with many couples each year to plan their wedding days. It is a joy to get to know them throughout the planning process, and to be a part of such a memorable time in their lives.
However, being asked to help with and be present at the wedding of one of my closest friends, Sara, as she married her best friend Calvin, was an incredible honor! This intimate ceremony and celebration started off at the Henry J. Hyde Judicial Office Facility, was followed by pictures and time with the family at Cantigny Park, and then continued on at Maggiano's with a delicious four course Italian meal. I absolutely loved that the wedding day was "so them". From the classy, non-traditional wedding dress to taking pictures at one of the family's favorite parks to inviting those nearest and dearest to them (with a guest list of 22!) for the reception, I could see the sweet couple beaming from start to finish from how perfectly the day turned out.
Kristi of Snapdragon Photos captured the beautiful images of the day. She had a way about her that made everyone comfortable in front of the camera and kept the sessions lighthearted and fun.
