Royal Fox Country Club Wedding – Jenna and Matt

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Typically brides get really stressed out about the possibility of rain on their wedding day.  Not Jenna though, she was beaming the whole day.  Gah, and the emotional smiles and happy tears from everyone made it hard to not get a good shot at this Royal Fox Country Club Wedding.  Seriously Jenna, your friends and family are amazing!

So, back to the rain- a thing we love about rain? The color of the trees and grass that go along with it. All of our wedding photos seem to get more vibrant after the rain.  A huge thank you to Jenna and Matt for being willing to go out on the Green of the Royal Fox Country Club when the clouds still looked like they were going to burst.

Now… to start with the perfect wedding ballerina shoes for today.

The hill at the Royal Fox Country club is one of my favorite spots on all of their grounds.

Owen and Matt’s Chicago Cozy Noodle Engagement

Written by , Posted in Engagement

2013-06-11_0001

 

Growing up, I was surrounded by nostalgia. Tin and wooden toys are a few of my favorite things- so when we went to Cozy Noodle for Owen and Matt’s Chicago engagement photography session, we had a plethora of amazingness. Added in with that, the interior of the space paired with the autumn backdrop colors quite well. Fall in Illinois is downright breathtaking. So when Owen and Matt said they had a blanket- well, we had a field. 🙂
They are getting married at Architectural Artifacts later this summer, so speaking of being surrounded by nostalgia- it couldn’t be at a better wedding venue. Can’t wait!

A Chicago Engagement Photography Session- Bea and Steven

Written by , Posted in Engagement

Bea and Steven are getting married tomorrow!! So, what a perfect time to share their Chicago engagement photography session!
Knock on wood- we have thankfully bypassed the crazy snow/hail storm today to make room for a bright sunny day for their wedding at Artango tomorrow. Being a lover of Jeans over Lace- Bea was super excited to get Chicago engagement photography done as a great way to practice before their big day. Steven and Bea met when Bea started teaching at Steven’s school. She was placed under Steven’s wing to co-teach with, and it all started from there. That first date? Well, it didn’t start as a date, just as friends going out for a drink at a Sports bar-  but throughout those hours, those looks across across the table, you just know something special is taking place- and from Bea voicing her feelings, it all started from there.
Can’t wait for tomorrow! 🙂

Jenna and Matt’s Chicago Engagement Photo Session

Written by , Posted in Engagement

chicago wedding photographer engagement photography session 1Something about Jenna’s Navy blue dress makes me swoon. I’m a HUGE fan of deep blues for engagement sessions, it’s just the right pop of subtle color. Along with jeans paired with jackets that Matt is sporting. Jenna and Matt just moved to Chicago from Milwaukee- into the neck of the woods I moved to when I first came to Chicago. (Hope you two had a chance to stop by Matilda, the cocktails are delicious!)
Jenna and Matt are having their wedding at the Royal Fox Country Club in St. Charles this summer. Can’t wait! Oh, and make sure to check out their DIY save the date panels they made at the bottom of the post!
