John and Lily had their Chicago engagement session with us the week of their wedding as they live in Sunny and Tropical Hawaii. They wanted to have their wedding in fabulous Chicago since family is based all over the US and Canada, and Chicago makes for a great meeting point (thank you O’hare airport, we couldn’t do it without you) 🙂
I always find it wonderful when families travel for important life events, the closeness and emotion is lovely.
John and Lily met through John’s sister, with whom Lily was fast friends with back in San Diego- and the love blossomed from there. In the midst of planning their own ‘destination’ wedding of sorts from Hawaii, John was also serving our country overseas. Our favorite question for them was when we asked if/where they plan on going on their honeymoon, they simply answered ‘No, we live in Hawaii.’ So true, so true.
By the way, John has quite an excellent fashion sense, between Lily’s wedding shoe hunt for the perfect color and John’s multi-print pocket square, I cannot wait for you to see their wedding. In the meantime, here is their Chicago Engagement Session.
