THIS DAY is one that I will never forget! Shelby and Nick were full of so much joy and so much emotion on their wedding day. Literally nothing could dampen their mood…not even the pouring rain! They braved the rain to take portraits on Lake Michigan right before their ceremony and did not complain even once! While they easily could have reacted to the rain with stress or disappointment, they fully embraced it. They were just so happy to be marrying each other and didn’t have a care in the world…exactly the way it should be on your wedding day!
Shelby & Nick, thank you for letting me parade you around Chicago in the rain and for trusting me to capture your stunning day. I loved celebrating you with your friends and family and feel like the luckiest to have been the one to capture it all. Enjoy a few of my favorites from your beautiful Galleria Marchetti wedding!
Thank you to the amazing vendors who made this day so beautiful!
