Alyse & PJ | Danada House | Wheaton, IL Wedding Photographer

There is so much emotion surrounding a wedding day, I feel like I often have a brief whirlwind romance with my couples.  Not in the traditional sense of course, but I do get to know them fairly well in a short amount of time.  I think that has a lot to do with the fact that they are surrounded by the people that know and love them the best and there are so many stories that fly about throughout the day that I get to hear, that sometimes I feel like I've seen their whole lives in a single day.   On their wedding day, their true selves come out and I felt like PJ & Alyse are two of the nicest people I will ever meet.  I am lucky to have met and continue to meet so many wonderful people and I get to celebrate love hundreds of times over. 

"When I wake up in the morning, love
And the sunlight hurts my eyes
And something without warning, love
Bears heavy on my mind

When the day that lies ahead of me
Seems impossible to face
When someone else instead of me
Always seems to know the way

Then I look at you
And the world's alright with me
Just one look at you
And I know it's gonna be
A lovely day
A lovely day"

~ Bill Withers
