Today is the day these two say “I do!” To say I’m excited for them would be the biggest understatement of the year. Keep an eye out in the coming days for some sneaks!
Last year we met up on a ridiculously warm December evening for their engagement shoot. Spending this hour with Laura and Mike in German Village left me with a natural high. It’s always refreshing to see two people in love, but even more so when you know them personally.
Everything in the village was alive and bustling with holiday spirit. There were lights around every turn, and people were getting ready for the Village Lights that evening, an event where everyone puts luminaries outside of their homes. As the evening continued, the most dynamic sunset tucked under the horizon to make way for a vibrant blue hour. We finished the evening in Schiller Park for some silhouettes and by then all of the streets around us were speckled with dancing luminaries.
