As I've been growing my business, trying to nail down a marketing plan, perfect my website and write about myself in an interesting and clear way that defines my passion and love for being a photographer (and like ten other things), I have gotten a little sidetracked from acknowledging my favorite part of this job. But this wedding-- this beautiful, intimate, humble and honest wedding-- this one will stay with me forever as a reminder that this job is such a gift and such an honor.
Becca and Thomas were joined on a rooftop in downtown Chicago with 60 of their closest people. The admiration for these two was piercingly clear in the way each and every guest looked at them. Their love and giddiness came through during every moment of the night as they laughed and cried their way through the ceremony and danced hard to the best wedding playlist I've ever heard. My favorite moment of the night was during a speech when the MOH, Sydney, said to Becca, "you invite us in and you never let us leave". I could not come up with a more perfect phrase that reflects how I believe Becca and Thomas care about their people, and their wedding celebration was a clear example of that.
Congratulations to Becca and Thomas, may your marriage be filled with everlasting giddiness and grace for each other.
