Nothing like springtime in Chicago and a sweet couple like Carol & Eric to put a smile on my face! This day at Cantigny Park in May was such a joy to be a part of.
You love the roses – so do I. I wish
The sky would rain down roses, as they rain
From off the shaken bush. Why will it not?
Then all the valley would be pink and white
And soft to tread on. They would fall as light
As feathers, smelling sweet: and it would be
Like sleeping and yet waking, all at once.
I have two weddings to shoot this weekend, but Monday you will find me on a lake somewhere with my honey soaking in the sun and enjoying an ice cold lemonade. Happy Memorial Day loves!
Nieces are such a treat! Our sweet Jaylyn girl begged me to take walks with her, introduced us all to her American Girl dolls with fresh hair styles from the American Girl Store and reminded me over and over of the joy of being a child this week.
One of my favorite couples, one of my favorite weddings… I could have made this post 200 images long and still not shared all of the emotions, beautiful moments and little nuances of Gina & Tim’s day. I just scratched the surface here, but you can also read and see more by checking out the recent feature of this day on BRIDES and Snippet & Ink. Thank you to the amazing vendors who brought Gina & Tim’s vision to life: Anne Book Signature Style, Pistil & Vine, The Blackstone Hotel, Magnificent Milestones, Happy Menocal, Vera Wang, Girl with a Serious Dream, Your Stylist AJ and Shannon O’brien Makeup Artist.
