CHICAGO WEDDING : ST. MICHAEL CATHOLIC CHURCH + COUNTY LINE ORCHARD WEDDING PHOTOS // tracy + jim

There is something about the way they look at each other. A look of knowing, trust and love. A look of I am right where I am meant to be and I want it last forever.

This look was apparent all day long for Tracy and Jim. It happened as Tracy walked toward Jim in church, as they vowed to be there through the twists and turns of life, and as they held each other in their arms late into the evening. Tracy and Jim were right where they need to be – at each others’ side. The wedding was merely a formal declaration of what existed in their hearts. They spent the day surrounded by friends and family celebrating their love and commitment to one another on a gorgeous December day. The excitement and support among them was a true testament to how amazing their relationship is.

Tracy and Jim – The day radiated with love and it was beyond amazing to view it and capture it through my camera. Thank you for sharing your day with me and welcoming me into your lives. You both are fantastic, genuine and beyond kind. I cannot wait to see what is ahead for you both. Much love and xo – Brittany

While Tracy wore a gorgeous sparkly pair of Ivanka Trump heels for the ceremony, she had a comfy and fun pair of cowboy boots for the reception.

As Tracy entered the church, Jim was beyond eager to see her …. and when he did … well this was his reaction.

I love this moment of Tracy’s father giving her away to Jim.

I think it is safe to say that Jim was thrilled to finally see his bride.

Jim’s cousin is a priest at St. Michael, and he officiated the beautiful Catholic ceremony for Tracy and Jim.

Tracy and Jim snuck across the street right before sunset so that we could photograph some beautiful natural light images, and I couldn’t have been happier with the location or the soft light.St. Michael Catholic Church and County Line Orchard Indiana Wedding Photos_0044

Tracy and Jim planned a rustic, country themed reception at County Line Orchard in Indiana. Every guest received a bottle of yummy root beer to bring home. Love this!

Tracy and Jim designed the perfect rustic reception. Every detail matched the feel of the reception including the escort card table (that I LOVED!)
