Chastity and Chris are full of fierce, passionate love – for each other, for their fur babies, for their family and friends. When Mike and I went to Chicago to shoot their engagement session they welcomed us into their home with open arms and cocktails! From our very first conversation on the phone, Chastity and I felt like old friends and that’s how it’s been ever since. I’m pretty much obsessed with them.
A Fairytale Hans Fahden Wedding
I was so incredibly lucky to be included in their gorgeous fairytale Hans Fahden wedding – the venue is like a magical secret garden. From the bridge to the lake, the cave to the vineyards, and wildflowers, with beautiful colors everywhere, it’s just breathtaking. Add in the fall colors…forget about it! To die for!
Chastity’s dress was by Hayley Paige and she couldn’t have chosen a better dress for the venue! I also loved the bridesmaids’ dresses in shades of blush. Other visual treats included wooden signs from Hand and Heart Event Design everywhere to help you navigate through the grounds and added to the magic of the scenery.
Dance The Night Away
The dancing at the reception went on for hours, and even included limbo! Everyone was dripping with sweat, including me. Yes, that’s right, I danced too! So many fun people in one room with the photos to prove it. Chas & Chris, I seriously couldn’t be happier for you and for the fact that you chose me to capture your amazing flipping celebration!
Thanks to all the awesome vendors for making this a dream-come-true wedding a fabulous event, and a huge congratulations to the happy couple!
