Carly + Ryan | Independence Grove Wedding Photography

Independence Grove Wedding Photography

Sometimes you get an opportunity to meet the kindest people in the world, photograph their wedding, peek into their lives a bit and get to know them through their family and friends; Carly and Ryan’s wedding day was one of those kinds of days. At the end of the night, Carly kept saying this is the most perfect day I could have imagined; weather, location, details, family, friends. It all came together so perfectly and I was honored to be there to capture it all. I must say, Independence Grove is one of the most beautiful parks in all of Chicagoland. Check out some of the fun and some of our favorite photos from the day.

Jaquelin + Peter | Racquet Club Chicago Wedding Photography

The trees were still blossoming and Jackie and Peter’s Spring wedding day felt like it was bursting with anticipation. Walking into The Racquet Club Chicago, you couldn’t help but notice that the surroundings matched Jackie’s elegance perfectly; it provided the perfect backdrop to her wedding day. While Peter and his buddies hung out on the courts, Jackie and her ladies enjoyed some laughs and made some final preparations before heading across the street for their emotional ceremony. Bagpipes escorted their guests back to the Racquet Club for beautiful and energetic reception, you couldn’t ask for a more wonderful celebration. I’m so happy for Jackie and Peter. Check out a few favorites from their day.
