While it may seem a little incongruous to post a wintery wedding on one of the hottest weeks of the year, I’m deep in winter wedding booking season and was sharing these photos with another couple recently when I thought it was such a shame I never posted them! This couple, Lauren & Jeff, became one of the couples I grew most close to in my entire career! After our first meeting, I immediately thought i wanted them not only as clients, but as friends, and I later found out Lauren told Jeff after our consult that we would end up being friends. Jeff thought she was nuts, but  almost two years later my boyfriend and I have become good friends with Lauren and Jeff, celebrating at parties, sharing dinners in Paris, and eating too much cheese at our home. I am so grateful I was able to photograph their day (and several other shoots) as weddings like these remind me of why I love my job as much as I do! They both have such wonderful, positive, joyful energy that is so fun to capture. Their wedding fell in January, always an iffy time in Chicago, sometimes totally freezing and gray and other times beautiful and romantic. Lauren and Jeff totally lucked out, with the first day of the “snowpocalypse” starting the day of their wedding. While the next few days were a pain, their day was glorious, with nice chilly but pleasant temperatures outside and beautiful snowfall starting the minute they walked out of the church. It was so romantic and from inside the cozy and warm setting of Greenhouse Loft made for a stunning sight as we watched the snow fall down beyond all the candlelight in the room. A perfect day for a perfect couple! 🙂
