CHICAGO WEDDING // LAURA + JIM

I couldn’t have hoped for a more beautiful Saturday in May than the day we had for Laura and Jim’s wedding. The sun was shining. The weather was warm … but not too warm. The air … full of love.

Laura and Jim married in front of their friends and family at the historic, and beautiful, Assumption Catholic Church in Chicago. The church was absolutely stunning and warm with happiness as these two promised to be together in good times and bad … regardless of whatever life throws their way.

They are the type of couple who work because they are different. Laura is a city girl …. loving the hustle and bustle of the Chicago streets while Jim is a more mellow guy. He loves the outdoors and lots of space. They balance the other out. They are each other’s yin to their yang.

Laura + Jim, I hope you enjoying Bora Bora and taking time to soak up your new titles as husband and wife. Thank you for allowing me to document your marriage and making me feel so welcome among your friends and family. The day was so special, and I hope that the years ahead are full of much love and happiness.

It was so wonderful to see one of my favorite old co-workers, Heidi, who is Laura’s cousin and her matron-of-honor.
