PRIYANTH + LAURA

Cotillion Banquets ⋅ Palatine, Illinois Laura slipped away from the reception. Priyanth, thinking she must have gone to freshen up, was oh so wrong in his assumptions. The lights went dark and as they raised the house lights, there was Laura, in position on the stage in a second outfit. The sounds of Bollywood music…

GARY + ANNA

Private Estate ⋅ Crown Point, Indiana It was minutes before the start of their ceremony. Surrounded by her closest friends, Anna received words of wisdom and blessings from those she loved most. As everyone held hands and said a short prayer together, you could feel just how much love was in the room. Anna was…

DANIEL + AMY

I Hotel ⋅ Champaign, Illinois All the girls were in their hotel suite getting ready when an alert on Facebook went off. Amy smiled and put down her phone. “Today marks exactly 5 years from my first date with Daniel. I totally had forgotten – thanks Facebook!” Today was their wedding day. Amy and Daniel…

BRANDON + NICOLE

SkyDeck ⋅ Chicago, Illinois Brandon and Nicole had been going to school together since middle school. It wasn’t until their senior year in high school that they would finally go out on their first date, which led to them dating all throughout their college years at Auburn. Nicole thought this would just be a fun…

JOHN + COURTNEY

Noah’s ⋅ Naperville, Illinois John’s touching Mother-Son Dance had just come to an end. Courtney’s father took a deep breath and pulled his chair out from beneath him. He slowly approached the dance floor where he met his daughter. As they exchanged “ready” glances, suddenly F.L.Y.’s “Swag Surfin’” began blasting on the speakers. Courtney threw…

JOEL + RACHEL

University Club ⋅ Chicago, Illinois Rachel’s Maid of Honor gripped the microphone and cleared her throat. Silence fell over the room. Suddenly, a familiar tune filled the air. Rocking out to the N*SYNC song “It’s Gonna be Me”, she had changed all of the words to sing Rachel and Joel well-wishes with their new marriage….

AUSTIN + KELSEY

CityView ⋅ Champaign, Illinois Austin and Kelsey met almost a decade ago when they were both working together at Sears and now they finally get to tie the knot!

ANDREW + BRITTANY

National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture ⋅ Chicago, Illinois Andrew and Brittany met at a party in college, but they wouldn’t start dating until years later. After much persistence on Andrew’s part, Brittany finally gave in — and now they couldn’t be happier! The two are originally from downstate and Missouri, but that didn’t…

JON + STACY

The Onion Pub & Brewery ⋅ Lake Barrington, Illinois I first met Stacy almost 10 years ago (wow, where does time go?!) and I couldn’t have been more excited for her when I heard she got engaged. Having never met Jon, I knew he must be great if he could keep up with her free spirit and…

RICH + ANDREA

Independence Grove ⋅ Libertyville, Illinois When Andrea and Rich first said they wanted their engagement photos in the snow, I thought no problem– this is Chicago after all! But then somehow the session got pushed back from January to February to March with no sign of snow in sight. I normally hate the snow and cold, and…
