Lauren and Tommy tied the knot in Chicago, IL, on a frigid, foggy, windy (of course, it's Chicago!) day in February, and it could not have been more beautiful. We knew the weather and the traffic would play a big role in how much time we had for photos, as well as dictate where we would be able to go. Right as we were heading to our final photo destination (Castaway's, for a cool skyline view) the fog set in and it began to rain. I let Lauren make the call, and she said "let's just do it!" The foggy skyline photos are some of my favorite from the whole day, I am so happy she braved the crazy wind and rain to make those happen!
I had a fabulous weekend in the City, with my husband Andrew and my sidekick, Teresa Schmidt, and we had a blast capturing Lauren and Tommy's Wedding. Getting to know them through their family and friends was incredible, and I felt so much love! Their Bridal Party was so fun, the reception and dancing was a blast and the day flew by!
Lauren's mama brought Dad in for the first look of his baby girl, and it was the most beautiful moment!!!
Lauren and Tommy read vows to each other privately during their first look.
