This past Saturday, we wrapped up our official wedding season for 2015. And for every year we’ve been photographing the best day of people’s lives, we find this moment to be bitter sweet. The sun sets earlier, the cloudy days begin rolling in, and cooler weather prevails. But this year… this just wasn’t the case. Well, except for the weather. Apparently when Laura, Phil and I get together, crazy wind and overcast skies are in the forecast. Lucky for us, the day also included warm sun, blue skies, a little misty rain and, yes, you guessed it – clouds and wind.
But truth be told, Jehn and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to end our year. And truth be told, we couldn’t have asked for a more rad and amazing couple than Laura and Phil who were, in the simplest terms, there to celebrate with each other, and those Chicagoans who flew all the way out to the left coast to see Laura and Phil do their thing. The Chuppah on the beach, the hotel overlooking the ocean, and the Seymour Marine Discovery Center where they toasted and danced the night away all played in to exactly how they wanted their day to be – perfect, in absolutely every way.
A huge shout out to my friend and amazing industry insider Aimee Claire of Weddings by Aimee for making this truly spectacular!
