I can’t believe I’m writing this, but this is the LAST wedding we will be blogging for our 2015 season!!! I LOVE blogging weddings + it’s going to be so sad to have to wait until MAY to blog the next one (as of right now anyway)!! I guess it will just be that much more exciting when the time comes : )!
As we were on the way to Brian + Emily’s wedding last weekend, Caleb + I were chatting about the season + we decided that we don’t think we could have finished things out with a better couple than these two! Why is that? Because Brian + Emily LOVE marriage + they believe in it like we do. They have sent us countless emails + texts about how our passion for marriage has inspired them along their engagement journey, + then their emails + texts inspire us right back!! It’s been a beautiful continuous cycle. They are a couple who stand behind us + our brand wholeheartedly, + for that, we are just so, so thankful. What an encouragement!
Brian + Emily got married last weekend at St. Joan of Arc Church in Lisle, Illinois with their reception at Glendale Lakes Golf Club in Glendale Heights, Illinois!! It’s always fun shooting at new locations + exploring new cities with our couples (+ each other) : ) It was a day centered around Brian + Emily’s shared Catholic faith, love + respect for one another, + desire to travel + experience the world together. I’m absolutely certain I have never witnessed a more joyful groom than Brian was on his wedding day … something Caleb + I still keep talking about!! He was just SO happy. SO joyful. It was palpable, truly, pouring out from him + impacting everyone there to celebrate with the newlyweds : )
Despite cooler temperatures + a race with the sunset, we were able to capture moments with Brian + Emily that I know they will cherish for the rest of their lives : ) To the McGuigans — we adore you guys so stinkin’ much + are so thankful for you!! I think you know that, but it can’t be said too many times. We are beyond excited for all your life together has in store for you as you guys experience the richness of marriage, the power in the unity of your new team, + the excitement of experiencing the world together + through one another’s eyes+ hearts!! We love you!! XO!!!
SO stunning, Emily!!!!
The beautiful + brand-new McGuigans!!
It’s like they had their own secret garden : ) !!!
So many gorgeous spots to shoot at Cantigny Park in Wheaton!!
