Stacy and Jeff | Loft 310 Wedding

I’m only just a little late in posting this blog. Please forgive all of my lateness in getting blogs and edits done. As you all know now, we are expecting a little boy and he has given me a run for my money. The morning sickness is FINALLY GONE! And I have a full week of blogs ahead, and I can’t wait to finally be back on track and on schedule!
But enough about me, I want to reminisce about Stacy and Jeff’s beautiful wedding day at Loft 310. It was a PERFECT June day. Calm, sunshine, mild temps, and just so easy going. I met with Stacy and Jeff for the first time during their engagement session in Lincoln Park, Chicago. We had so much fun walking around and chatting about the plans for the day. And it got me so excited for their wedding. We chatted about how they met at work, they’re both teachers, how he proposed in Montreal on a trip they took, and how they just wanted their wedding to be fun but minimal.
And, oh did Loft 310 and Fond of Florals knock it out of the park with Stacy’s vision of white and green. Simple, clean, timeless, and so PERFECTLY “minimal”. All the details were so gorgeous, the place settings, the cake her Uncle made, the vines of greenery hanging from the ducts and all the gorgeous centerpieces. It was truly so fun to be a part of the day and to be able to capture their love effortlessly. So excited to share!

Jen and Roman | The Armory, South Bend Wedding | Indiana Wedding Photographer

Weddings have started!! And we are so excited that Jen and Roman’s wedding was the first of 2019! We survived the polar vortex and the day of was a much appreciated 30 degrees with a fresh blanket of snow.

Jen and Roman met through Jen’s family trying to set them up. Roman is the general manager of Temper Grille in Granger, where Jen’s family frequented. They thought they would make a great match but could never get the two of them together in the same place at the same time. When they finally did meet, they did in fact hit it off and they started dating. And on February 2nd their closest family and friends saw them share their vows and saw Roman put on a jean jacket as a sign of affection and commitment to Jen (her favorite item of clothing!). It was such a sweet, easy going, beautiful winter wedding.

We hope that winter weddings catch on because the glow from the snow makes for the most gorgeous lighting! So if you’re thinking of a winter wedding - DO IT!!
