One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is getting a front row seat during my couples first look, their personal vows, the ceremony, and listening to the speeches from their closest friends and family at the reception. Getting to learn more about my couples before the wedding day makes it that much better. For example, how insanely perfect Dana & Chris are for each other. They are both hilarious, love to laugh, and have the same sense of humor. Dana & Chris had us laughing the entire day and my cheeks hurt from it!! On August 31, there wasn’t a room we were ever in that didn’t include laughter! Just take a look below at their entire day but especially their ceremony. It had the most laughter I’ve ever witnessed!
During Chris and Dana’s first look, they both waved at each other when Chris turned around and after they read their vows, they high fived! At the ceremony, they added on funny personal vows and without each other knowing what the other said, they created the same ones! If that’s not a perfect fit, I’m not sure what is!
While this wedding was a visual dream, it was so heartfelt and endearing all at the same time. Their officiant, Chris’ brother, Scott, did an amazing job sharing their relationship and love for one another. It tailored to them as a couple so perfectly. They truly are the sweetest duo. Brian and I felt so honored that we had the opportunity to capture their day for their family and friends to remember forever!! Enjoy some of my favorite images that tell a visual story of their day!!
Dana & Chris, we are so glad we got to capture your perfect wedding day. Your day was filled with so much love and laughter, and we know you will continue to have that love in your everyday lives. Your laughs are infectious, and we know you will have many more years of laughter together. Thank you guys for just being so cool, easy going, and easy to talk to. We are forever team Dana & Chris (and of course Wrigley, too 😉 ) xo
