Tanner and Justin are two of the most sincere and fun people you’ll ever meet. To know them is to love them! You might remember their engagement shoot I posted last year. That is still such a vivid day in my memory. The whole time it was just about to rain and there was this gorgeous haze in the air.
Fast forward to their wedding last year, it was quite literally the perfect day. The wedding started with the girls getting ready at Trinity United Methodist Church. This was the first time I had ever shot in this church and it quickly became one of my favorites. In the main entrance, there’s a glass dome ceiling. As the light poured through, it made the most spectacular starburst light pattern across the room. I knew we had to take advantage of that for a photo of Tanner! Her bridesmaids wore navy blue and everyone carried bouquets of white and green. Everything looked so romantic and sophisticated.
As Tanner and her father turned the corner to walk down the aisle toward Justin, they were both backlit and Tanner was literally glowing. I had never seen a more radiant bride! Justin wiped away tears as he saw his bride walk toward him. It was the perfect moment.
After the ceremony, the two celebrated as they walked into the hallway with cheers towards our cameras and the cutest “just-married” kisses! I couldn’t get enough of it! From there we traveled to Schiller Park where the was a slight breeze in the air and a duck who wanted to compete with the happy couple for photo time. From the park, we drove to High Line Car House which has the most photogenic back alley. It was a nice last few minutes they could spend together before the party started. And what a party it was! Just pure joy all night long. I feel so thankful to have been there to see it all! I hope you love these as much as I loved taking them! XO Jess
