Well, I started the year off right, with a beyond unbelievably gorgeous wedding at Hotel Allegro in Chicago! Joanne & Marc were married on January 1st, 2011, and left me inspired for the rest of the year! One of my New Years "Resolutions" is to not just post small teasers anymore, but go back to posting a quick "sneak peek" for the bride and groom sometime prior to posting all their photos. So here goes one of many firsts this year, I am hoping :) Their wedding ceremony was at the Holy Name Cathedral downtown, and their wedding at the Allegro Hotel was styled and planned by Charlene & Hollie at Sweet Chic Events. They were the nicest people to work with and planned such a beautiful wedding, I hope to work with them again!
Stephanie & Brad (my husband and faux-to booth photographer extraordinaire) joined me to make this wedding one of the most fun of all time!
Marc (handsome, sweet, friendly to a fault = *swoon*) & Joanne (drop dead gorgeous, charming, huggably awesome) are the best couple - they have such a strong connection to each other and so friendly with everyone - I felt like I knew them for a long time the first time we met! They also are photographers, and brought their creativity to every aspect of the wedding. Every detail was truly stunning, but the best thing I saw all day was their love -- it rubbed off on everything and everyone, and I could not have asked for a better way to start the year. Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your day! <3
