CHICAGO VOW RENEWAL : CITY HALL + LURIE GARDENS // erin + connor

They pledged their love in front of their friends and family last year during a big wedding with all the bells and whistles. As they were about to start their lives together in Chicago, Erin and Connor chose to reaffirm their commitment. It was a vow renewal, but more importantly, it was a declaration of their constant love to each other … still.

Inside a small room at city hall, Connor and Erin glowed with happiness as they slipped their wedding bands on one another. They whispered their everlasting promises into each other’s ears and sealed their words with a kiss.

Erin and Connor – I am so blessed that the universe brought us together. Documenting this intimate day was beyond amazing. It was raw, authentic, and full of blissful love … just like the two of you. May the years ahead be full of health and happiness. Much love and gratitude  … Brittany

The Chicago forecast called for rain, but that didn’t alter the day for Erin and Connor. It was all about their love. Once we left city hall, the afternoon drizzle stopped.

We had all of the Lurie Gardens to ourselves … the rain scared everyone else away. :)

I love to photograph the rings solely because of what they represent … never ending love.

After spending over a year apart in a long distance relationship, Erin and Connor were beyond excited to both start new attorney jobs in Chicago.

I met Erin and Connor for the first time just moments before we walked into city hall. Erin and I had been emailing for week, and her and Connor were even sweeter than I imagined. Their zest for life is contagious.
