Ellen+Brandon | Bolingbrook Golf Club Wedding | Chicago Wedding Photographer

Ellen’s smile can light up a room. It’s a look that makes you smile right back at her. She makes you feel like you belong right where you are. And Brandon is her perfect match. Together they are in their own little world and we are so lucky that we were able to be a part of it. The most wonderful september day was filled with love as these two, surrounded by all of their family and friends became Mr. and Mrs. Brandon Nigro. Top that off with a sunset that was to die for and you have the perfect wedding. These two pulled that off and we were honored to be there to capture it!! Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Kotlarz for all of your hospitality. It was a pleasure to spend time with your family. Mr. and Mrs. Nigro, thank you for allowing us to share such a special day as well. And to Ellen and Brandon…we wish you lots of love and tons of laughs! Here’s to a lifetime of happiness!! xoxo Autumn and Melin:)

Alyssa+Doug | Hyatt Magnificent Mile Wedding | Chicago Wedding Photographer

The only thing that outshines Alyssa and Doug’s love for the amazing city of Chicago, is their incredibly powerful love for each other. Alyssa is graceful and elegant, and her beautiful downtown wedding at the Hyatt Magnificent Mile was the same. Most of the wedding guests were from out of town and didn’t hesitate to travel in for a weekend with the new Mr. and Mrs. Sutherland. Even the Morning rain couldn’t put a damper on the joy that beamed from Alyssa’s smile as she exited the limousine and headed for the church. This was their day, with the people they love the most, in the city they adored. We loved experiencing this day with them. We were honored that they chose us, that the bridal party was fun and up for anything, and that Alyssa and Doug were relaxed and able to just cherish each other while we were with them to capture it. The weather turned out to be exactly perfect, and the sunset at the end of the city blocks we walked was almost as stunning as the Bride and Groom. Thank you so much to the Flannigan and Sutherland families for welcoming us into your family for the day. And to Alyssa and Doug…we are so grateful to know you, and it warms our hearts just knowing that their are such wonderful people in the world as you. We wish you all great things!!! Lots of love! xoxo Autumn and Melin:)

Karis+Nick | Downtown Frankfort Engagement | Chicago Area Wedding Photographer

There wasn’t a moment of during our initial ice cream meetup, or having a cocktail at Francescas during our engagement shoot, that we didn’t feel like we have known Karis and Nick forever. There was barely a moment that didn’t contain conversation and laughter. That’s what we love about them…they are down to earth, real people who you just want to be around! They are beautful together, they are madly in love, and we just can’t wait to see them say “I do”! Congratulations Nick and Karis!!! We are so glad we are a part of this journey with you!! xoxo Autumn and Melin:)

All that Glitters | Deanna+Nick | Downtown Frankfort Wedding Photographer

Well there is no denying that Autumn and I are both Daddy’s girls, so while we take extra notice of these things, there is something so special about a Father on his daughter’s wedding day. We all understand that the planning, and the picking and trying things on are details that the bride usually shares with the mother, and the girls in the wedding. Going to cake tastings and discussing amazing painted flowers on a cake that is already amazingly glamourous….all shared with the girls. Sure the dad chimes in with a smile while watching the game, but choosing the right amount of crystals to go on that layer of cake really didn’t rank high on his priority list. But on the morning of the wedding, when the father of the bride see’s his baby girl come down the stairs on the happiest day of her life, in the most luxurious of gowns, it all becomes clear that THIS is what he was waiting for. For Mr. Bosma, this was the day that his baby girl was getting married and this moment made sitting through all of the detail conversations worth it. She was so happy, and that’s all he has ever wanted for her.
Deanna and Nick, along with Mr. and Mrs. Bosma, spared no expense to make sure that this day was exactly what Deanna and Nick dreamed it would be. Deanna looked amazing in her Katerina Bocci Couture Dress from Fiance Couture. Perfect hair from Cheryl Bobin and gorgeous florals from Fleur Couture complete with a floral designed ceremony aisle and glitter-sprinkled full roses for throwing. They were jaw dropping. Her shoes were perfectly adorned with just the right amount of crystals for Deanna’s taste and the Cake….oh that cake from Bob Fleckenstein of Fleckensteins bakery was just an absolute show stopper! The reception was filled with the same floral glitz as the ceremony and the place card board from our favorite Julie Hanan Designs was just as perfect as ever! There was not an empty spot on the dance floor the entire night thanks to the incredible DJ Ice. And there is one thing that, while we always thank the vendors, we want to take special mention. Wedding vendors need to work together as a team so that the result is wonderful for everyone. It seems like it would be common knowledge, but you’d be surprised. This wedding we were lucky enough to work with videographer Michael Charizopoulos, and it was so refreshing to have someone so professional, and such a team player who truly cared, not just about the video he was filming, but about the bride and groom themselves, and their day as a whole with the rest of us vendors. We are truly grateful when we get to work with people like that!

Congratulations to Deanna and Nick. Many thanks to the two of you, to Mr. and Mrs. Gualandri, and especially Mr. and Mrs. Bosma for welcoming us into your home and into your family.

We are truly blessed and wish everyone all the best!! xoxo Autumn and Melinda
