Elyse + James | Libertyville Wedding Photography

The nerves were building all morning long. They didn’t plan to see each other before she walked down the aisle, but she offered to have him come into the room beforehand if he needed it. But, James kept it together the whole day until the moment each of the guys walked down the aisle toward him and spontaneously hugged him before they took their spot. That got him and tears poured from his eyes; he was surrounded by some special guys. He cleared his eyes just in time for the doors to open and Elyse and her father began down the aisle. Tears poured again; it was an incredible moment for everyone in the room. Elyse and James had a wonderful wedding day full of amazing love and special people from all areas of their lives. Everyone pulled together to help make their day possible. From make-up to music, pastors to performers, beer makers and bible readers; this was the best kind of community event that made the day incredibly special. The tears from the beginning of day were matched by giant smiles at the sparkler-filled send-off at the end of the night. Elyse and James are married!
