I was shooting all over this winter and spring, so it was wonderful to kick off my Chicago weddings with Nate and Sandra’s incredible wedding at one of my favorite venues, Prairie Productions. Nate and Sandra also deserve a gold star, as they planned this wedding in about three months, start to finish, and really truly put together one of the best days with one of the best vendors. It was wonderful to get to know their kind and fun families and also see them looking so glamorous; Nate looked incredibly dapper in his suit and Sandra was beautiful in a Vera Wang gown accentuated with a beautiful assortment of gorgeous crystal pins in her modern up-do and art deco earrings from Steve Quick. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wonderful wedding!
