CHICAGO WEDDING : HOLY TRINITY CATHOLIC CHURCH + CONCORDE BANQUET WEDDING PHOTOS // sandy + chris

The October sun peeked through the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center hotel suite as Sandy checked her hair and make-up for one last time. The day was finally here, and she kept checking in on everyone …. tidying up the room as she bounced from bridesmaid to bridesmaid. She wasn’t nervous … just anxious to begin her happily ever after with Chris.

As Chris put on his tux and straightened his bow tie downstairs, a smile beamed from his face. He was quiet, but the happiness and excitement of the day were are over his face.

The love between Sandy and Chris radiated as the they saw each other for the first time, and they hugged each other tight promising to never forget how perfect the moment was. The day was nothing short of a celebration as their families shed happy tears, friends toasted to their love, and everyone danced into the late hours of the evening. Love filled the room.

Sandy and Chris – You guys are the BEST! I am beyond blessed to tell your beautiful wedding day story, and it was nothing short of perfection. I adore you both, and I wish you nothing short of much love and adventure. Much love and xo – Brittany

Sandy had 6 pairs of shoes for her wedding. She planned to wear them all, but I just loved these beautiful Kate Spade shoes.

Sandy and Chris decided to have a first look before their ceremony, and I couldn’t have been happier. It allowed us plenty of time for bride and groom photos.

Prospect Heights Flowers designed such a unique and beautiful bouquet complete with feathers.

The dance floor was the spot to be as the evening went on…..

But first, Chris had to remove Sandy’s garter … and the DJ made him and all the groomsmen work for it by first giving the bridesmaids a little dance.

Chris had to find his new Mrs. blindfolded …. and he knew right away when he found her.
