Lauren and Tommy's Winter Chicago Wedding

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!

Becca and Cheney's Indiana University Autumn Wedding

Becca and Cheney tied the knot on October 7th, in Bloomington IN - Where they met at IU in College. THIS DAY WAS AMAZING!!! But, a couple of weeks ago things hit a screeching halt on the perfect Wedding planning when the University had to reschedule a football game because of the recent hurricanes, and used what was supposed to be that week's bye week as the reschedule date. This meant that Becca and Cheney could not have their Wedding in Henke Hall where they had been planning to use as their venue for over a year. Everyone was a little emotional when they heard this news just three weeks before the Wedding. Well, what should have been a really crappy situation turned out to be one of the coolest experiences I have had the honor of shooting! The university offered up, and I quote "for the first and last time ever" the University's Auditorium Stage to hold the reception. Sounds crazy right, but with the help of their amazing Wedding Planner Lynette, from Social Butterfly Weddings and Events, they pulled off magic! Pure, beautiful, magic!!! IT WAS SO AMAZING! And so incredibly unique! 

Also, I'd like to add for those reading this that do not know Becca and Cheney, they were both college athletes at IU, so when you see the very last photo on this post, you can imagine the crowd just erupting in applause with their skills! Please enjoy the sneak peek of Becca and Cheney's Wedding!
