The forecast called for rain. All morning long, dark clouds floated overhead. However, as guests started to find their seats, the sun arrived, illuminating everything. According to Aaron, that’s exactly what he and Adrienne were praying for.
Prayer permeated their wedding. Their attendants prayed for them before they saw each other. Their fathers prayed a blessing over them before they left the altar. After the lantern launch, guests crowded the dance floor and prayed for them as they left for the night.
Beyond these powerful moments, their day was filled with beautiful decorations, delicious food, and plenty of joy.
When we started doing the portraits after TJ and Elizabeth’s wedding ceremony, Elizabeth remarked that her cheeks hurt from smiling so much. Of course, if you see her and TJ together for a few minutes, it’s obvious why that smile is always on her face. When they’re with each other, there’s a lot of love and a lot of joy. As photographers, that’s an incredible thing to capture.
Their wedding day was filled with great friends, supportive family, beautiful handmade decorations, vibrant fall colors, and a great party.
Laughter filled the apartment as Dan and his groomsmen prepared for the wedding. He and Amanda have been looking forward to their day for over a year, and they did everything they could to make it special.
The ceremony and reception both took place at The Rookery in downtown Chicago, which was one of the most visually stunning venues we’ve worked in. As they stood at the bottom of the marble staircase, Amanda and Dan were completely focused on each other. It was a privilege to be part of their wedding day.
