Stephanie & John have been together since they were adolescents. They have a sweet and tender love. They compliment one another in such a beautiful way. I feel such a quant friendship with this family. Not only was I there with them during their sweet elopement last year but I also captured their Engagement Session last Autumn in Lincoln Park. I am also shooting a dear friend/family of theirs wedding next year and met the whole family during their elopement at Schram Memorial Chapel.
Saturday’s wedding at Holy Child Jesus Parish was about Stephanie & John celebrating the family they have made together and sharing that love and commitment to one another in the house of god in front of Family & Friends by their side. The day was your typical Chicago autumn day. Rainy. The rain they say is supposed to bring you good luck on your wedding day. I disagree lol. I was a bit upset at mother nature that she was spoiling my plans of endless amounts of portrait time with Stephanie and John. Not only did the rain not upset our plans too much but we ended up getting some amazing and sweet pics of these two.
Congratulations again to Stephanie & John! Thank you both for your kindness and generosity.
A special thanks to all the vendors who made Stephanie & John’s wedding day beautiful!
