Gina & Matt | Blumen Gardens | Sycamore, IL Wedding Photographer

You know those couples that are like literal fairy tale characters, that are constantly smiling, move perfectly together, look at each other like they are the last two people on earth, and spontaneously break into song when they are really feeling in love?  Yeah, I don't either.  Except that I do because that is Gina and Matt.  I couldn't even believe I wasn't dreaming as Stephanie and I photographed their wedding day. I know that a wedding day is a time to celebrate LOVE -- which is the greatest force on earth, so of course every wedding day is important.  However, I am overjoyed when a bride and groom can truly enjoy their wedding day, and I know that Gina and Matt did.  I know that, not because of the reasons above (although they are amazing), but because of something a little more amazing -- and a bit more subtle.  It is easy to get wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of a wedding day, but if you ever get to attend one, I suggest you watch the groom.  Not just when he sees his bride for the first time dressed up, but the whole day.  You will probably see a certain look in his eyes - a spark, a twinkle, or maybe even hearts and birds swirling around his head (well not literally, but I could almost see them).  Matt looked at Gina not once, not twice, but ALL day like this.  It really is one of the best parts of my job, because I get to watch that love and energy happen and capture it forever.  <3 0001gm 0002gm 0003gm 0004gm 0005gm 0006gm 0007gm 0008gm 0009gm 0010gm 0011gm 0012gm 0013gm 0014gm 0015gm 0016gm 0017gm 0018gm 0019gm 0020gm 0021gm 0022gm 0023gm 0024gm 0025gm 0026gm 0027gm 0028gm 0029gm 0030gm 0031gm 0032gm 0033gm 0034gm 0035gm 0036gm 0037gm 0038gm 0039gm 0040gm 0041gm 0042gm 0043gm 0044gm 0045gm 0046gm 0047gm 0048gm 0049gm 0050gm 0051gm 0052gm 0053gm 0054gm 0055gm 0056gm 0057gm 0058gm 0059gm 0060gm 0061gm 0062gm 0063gm 0064gm 0065gm 0066gm 0067gm 0068gm 0069gm 0070gm 0071gm 0072gm 0073gm 0074gm 0075gm 0076gm 0077gm 0078gm 0079gm 0080gm 0081gm 0082gm 0083gm 0084gm 0085gm 0086gm 0087gm 0088gm 0089gm 0090gm 0091gm 0092gm 0093gm 0094gm 0095gm 0096gm 0097gm 0098gm 0099gm 0100gm 0101gm 0102gm 0103gm 0104gm 0105gm 0106gm 0107gm 0108gm 0109gm 0110gm 0111gm 0112gm 0113gm 0114gm 0115gm 0116gm 0117gm 0118gm 0119gm
