Dan and Bridget are married! And there were Chicago rooftop views, stunning details, a gorgeous dress, a gorgeous pup, a bridal crew for the ages, some killer dance moves, a Seal serenade and one incredibly happy bride + groom. Just to name a few general highlights. This day was what Chicago summer wedding dreams are made of, and I could not have been happier to be there rocking the camera capturing all of these memories. I’ve known Bridget for a few decades know – the ole Hamlin Ave crew brought us together as kids, so getting to be there photographing her surrounded by all of this love + happiness was even better : ) Erin and I had way too much fun with this crew – they were the best!!
Scooooobs! Ohhhh the details. Stole. My. Heart. Oh this dress – it was made for Bridget. We hid Bridge behind the curtains for her big reveal. Everyone was obviously laughing as she was rocking some sweet moves behind them – and I of course was all “Ohhhh freeze!” Snap.Snap.Snap. “That’s gonna be like one of my faves from the day!” And it was!
I mean…. too much Bridget! Absolutely gorgeous. Gotta get ready for that first look! I love that Dan has a giant smile on his face before even turning around. These babes, killin it. The colors, the smiles, the hair, the dress…. I am obsessed. You guys were too much fun – thanks for being awesome! Yep. Time to get hitched! Marrrrrried!!! Galleria Marchetti was just the most perfect location for their day – I was in love with all of it! Oh, have I mentioned these two daaaaance?! Makin that memorable entrance. Some of the most notable moments from the newlyweds…
