It was at medical school when Trisha first noticed a tall, dark and handsome student named Joey. His shoulder-length, curly hair and his go-to look of comfort (i.e. sweatpants) intrigued her, and soon her and Joey were carpooling to class regularly. They shared a love of fast cars, Irish car bombs and the South Loop.
As they navigated medical school and a long distance relationship, their pasts became intertwined with their futures, and they decided to spend forever together.
On a perfect summer day in Chicago, Trisha and Joey stood together and professed their commitment to one another. An outpouring of love and excitement surrounded them as they became husband and wife and friends and family celebrated their love.
Trisha + Joey – Thank you for trusting me to document your first day as husband and wife. Your care and compassion for others and your love for each other is remarkable. I wish you only the best as your love continues to grow. Love + Gratitude – Brittany
On a gorgeous summer day, Trisha prepared in a suite at the Palmer House hotel which was a perfect start to the day.
Trisha loves all things “sparkly” so it was no surprise that her wedding day shoes were covered in sparkle.
The bride’s friend, April, designed her beautiful jewelry for her wedding day. All of Trisha’s bridesmaids also wore April’s gorgeous pieces.
Trisha and Joey married at Old St. Mary’s Church in Chicago.
Trisha took Joey’s breath away …
…. and had him in tears.
Friends and family traveled near and far to be present for Trisha and Joey’s vows.
And they sealed their promise to each other with a kiss.
Following the ceremony, we headed to Buckingham Fountain for some photos.
You can tell Trisha and Joey are LOVED. They had a huge wedding party, and everyone was so much fun!
Trisha envisioned a day full of color, and the bridesmaid’s bouquets from Phillip’s Flowers delivered on it.
Now this is something rather beautiful, don’t you think?
Trisha and Joey will likely spend more time apart than they will together as the complete their residency in two different states, but on their wedding day, they spent every moment they could together.
Trisha, you are radiant and you glowed with beauty, inside and out.
I love capturing my groom playing with his wedding band, and this is why.
Trisha and Joey had the most perfect Chicago day. The day was sunny and warm and the light only highlighted their love.
Friends and family celebrated the bride and groom at Butterfield Country Club.
Amy Beck Cake Design designed the beautiful cake that was inspired by Trisha’s wedding dress.
Trisha’s dad gave the most heartfelt speech ….
that was intertwined with lots of laughs.
The couple was beyond thankful for all the love and support from their friends and family not only on their wedding day but for their whole lives.
Before dinner ended, Trisha and Joey played the newlywed game, and it kept everyone laughing and entertained.
The first dance!
And it ended with a beautiful kiss.
And then the party really got going ….
The dance floor was packed …
and full of amazing dance moves.
But Joey and Trisha stayed at each other’s side … soaking up their perfect wedding day.
A huge thank you to all of the team members who helped create such a beautiful day for Trisha and Joey.
