We are so excited to share our first wedding after having our little girl.  We took some needed time off and are back at it this summer! And this wedding was gorgeous!  Jaclyn and Derek knew what they wanted from the start of the planning process.  With the help of their amazing wedding planner, Erica, they pulled off a simple, elegant and stress free wedding day.  The blush tones were perfect at the Riverside Terrace and as always, Saint Monica's Church was the perfect backdrop to say I Do. I have a special place in my heart for Saint Monica's. My mom went to school there as a little girl and almost 43 years ago, my parents were married there.  I always tell the bride and groom how special this place is and that I hope it brings them as much luck with their marriage as it brought my parents. 

There was so much joy throughout the day and it was truly a celebration of the couple bringing their families officially together.  Their two boys were celebrated just as much as the two of them. We were honored to be a part of your day and we can't wait to see what the future has in store for you!

Gertha and Alex | Engaged | Wrigley Building Chicago | Olive Park

It is no surprise that I absolutely love Chicago, especially when I get to take photographs of beautiful people while being there! I drove to Chicago, so excited to meet Gertha and Alex in person for the first time.  Gertha contacted me about photographing her wedding, after photographer a few of her family members weddings.  I absolutely ADORE her family so getting to be a part of another Saint Louis Family wedding is a huge honor. 

Gertha and Alex are so sweet together. They are natural and they make each other laugh, a lot, which makes for an extremely fun session.  After photographing their engagement session I can totally see why they love each other so much. Alex adores Gertha, and she him. The wedding is going to be so full of love, laughter and a lot of family!

I can't wait for their July wedding in Hoffman Estates!
