Lauren + Bob said “I do” last fall at the Chicago Yacht Club. The event was perfection with all of its nautically inspired decor and, of course, that beautiful backdrop!
Sarah + Jamie were married at Our Lady of Hope Catholic Church and hosted their reception at Byron Colby Barn. It was the second wedding of the year and I had the pleasure of working with Brian Kinyon Photography. One of my favorite things Sarah, Jamie and Brian did together was take some bridal party photos at Pickwick Theatre, how great is that space? And their handmade barn wedding reception? Swoon!READ MORE
Ali & Matt got married in June at the Byron Colby Barn in Grayslake and their rustic barn wedding was pure perfection. Take a look at them getting all dolled up.
After, the crew headed into the party.
…and then their friends decided it was time to put them up, high up in the air. Matt and Ali were just so lovely to work with and they made my day week when they called me (on their way to Hawaii no less) to tell me what a great day it was and say thanks one more time before they jetted off. Such class acts and it was my pleasure to be a part of it all.

Stephanie and Brian’s wedding at Byron Colby Barn in Grayslake in August was the outdoor barn wedding of our dreams. Both Brian and Stephanie are super creative and artistic and put a ton of effort into making their day unique to them. Which is my MOST FAVORITE thing. Brian’s hat and bowtie were so dapper and Stephanie rocked an amazing dress and killer shoes:
Stephanie and Brian were super troopers trucking through the fields surrounding the barn with Jeremy Lawson to get these shots. Stephanie even brought some little insect friends back with her trapped in the layers of her wedding dress! And yes, that was just after they shook hands with Mr. Ed.
Then it was time to get married!
So I rallied the troops: Stephanie’s brother escorted her down the aisle, they exchanged rings, shared a smootch.
Brian just could not help himself: a fist pump on the way out of the ceremony.
Stephanie collected doilies that we fashioned into table runners and blue mason jars that Nancy filled with gorgeous wildflowers.
Stephanie and her family made these magical magic wands for their guests to shake and wave as Stephanie and Brian walked back down the aisle as a married couple. Then they shook them when the bridal party was announced, and when they shook their booties on the dance floor and I’m hopeful they shook them back at the hotel and at brunch the next morning as well!
A lot of laughing, singing, drinking and dancing capped off an incredible day celebrating two incredible people. S & B: It was so much fun to be a part of your day and may you always be able to laugh off the bugs that fly up your dress!
