Jessica and Andrew

Oh gosh how fun and laid back was this wedding! You could tell it was just good friends and family having a good time! I love that. And I used my sewing skills to fix a dress (no, not the brides thankfully!) but it was fun and I’m glad I could be helpful! I seriously did have a blast during Jessica and Andrews wedding! And I think they did too as the pictures show (and let’s be honest, I’m better at the picture not the blog writing:))


Mary and Aaron

Oh my was this a fun day! I had a blast with Mary and Aaron and their crew, despite some small hiccups and us relentlessly checking rain forecasts, we evaded the rain and it was totally gorgeous out! No one was too hot or too cold and had a good time! The trees JUST started turning so we had a tiny bit of color! But it was fabulous.


Colleen and Stephen

I’m sure that I’ve been driving Colleen and Steven mad waiting for these, but they’re SO worth it. Colleen and Stephen are awesome. And there’s many reasons why, but I’ll spare some of the details because if you know them, they just are and so loving and it’s no wonder they had their closest friends and family there to celebrate with them! And they have great taste in food. MMM. But I digress, here’s their images since I know that’s why you’re here anyway!


Mary and Leo

For Mary and Leo’s wedding I was on the other side of the Morton Arboretum and I think I actually liked that quite a bit! It was like a completely different area than what I’d been in before! We had thought it may have rained on and off all week, even the day before we had an 80% chance of rain! That’s no good but luckily the rain went away and so the ceremony was able to be outside and the sun peaked out just at the end to give us the most gorgeous sunset possible! You really can’t plan those things! Mary and Leo are just perfect for each other. And it’s clear that they love one another, a lot.
