Kathlyn & Mike

I am finally getting to blog about this wonderful wedding I shot a couple weeks ago. I have lost my wireless internet connection on my laptop, so that has set me back on some of my work...ugh! :(

This wedding was so special for me to be a part of. This family was so welcoming and so sweet. You may remember Kathlyn & Mike from their engagement session I shot this summer on the most humid and stormy day. When I was still working in the legal field, I was Kathlyn's dad's paralegal at two different law firms. He was sweet enough to support my growing business and include me in this beautiful day.

Kathlyn and her dad (my old boss), Steve. He is truly one of the nicest, most sincere people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and especially working with.

Kathlyn's grandma made her this jacket to wear for her December wedding. It came in handy was 20 degrees outside.

Isn't she beautiful? Just like her father, she is truly a sweet, sweet person.

Mike and his mom.

Where's Waldo?

Putting on the finishing touches.

Mike is such a fun, happy guy. They are so lucky to have found each other because they make a perfect couple.

Mike & his brothers.

The girls giving some last minute support before walking down the aisle.

I love this shot. This is the Maid-of-Honor taking one last look at her big sister right before she took her turn down the aisle. There were lots of happy tears :)

First kiss

Alone at last! Well, except for me sneaking up on them ;)

Just as we started some fun photos, it started snowing and it was beautiful. A very, very special thank you to Deanne at the Herrington Inn in Geneva for letting me shoot down there. We so enjoyed your Christmas decorations, it was just the look Kathlyn was hoping for.

I love the motion of this image. We were running back to the limo since we were freezing our butts off. Kathlyn and Mike were such good sports about shooting outside on this winter day.

The reception took place at the Hilton in Lisle. The food was delicious and all the details were perfect for a Christmas wedding.
First Dance

I just love the look on Kathlyn's face as she is watching Mike dance with his mom.
As an added bonus, my grandparents were in attendance so I got to have a nice dinner with them and enjoyed watching them on the dance floor.

Kathlyn & Mike, thank you so much for letting me enjoy your day with you. I had such a good time and am so happy for both of you! Happy New Year!
Also, I want to thank Faye & Michael for shooting with me too. It's always fun with you both.
