BUTTERFIELD COUNTRY CLUB WEDDING // trisha + joey

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.

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.
