GORGEOUS WINTER WEDDING IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

bergerblog-0030.JPG

There are certain things we remember about each wedding we have the privilege to photograph. The moment for me at this wedding was being alone with Jennifer just moments before she walked down the long aisle of the church by herself. I could sense behind the closed doors of the awesome entrance to the sanctuary that we were not alone. I would like to believe that her father whom she lost years ago was with her. It was a spiritual moment just watching her collect her strength.

We were excited to shoot Jennifer and Brad’s wedding in Chicago but got nervous when we heard that Indianapolis and Chicago were going to get hit with a mean winter blizzard. So…we headed up a day early.

We instantly had a connection with Jennifer and Brad when they realized we were a ‘brother-sister team.’ Their siblings were the only attendants they had…her brother and his sister.

There were many great aspects to this wedding…here were some of our favorites: gorgeous white snow (just what you hope for at a winter wedding), a beautiful bride with a gown made by her grandmother and worn by her mother, a breathtaking church, the bride’s cousin who accompanied them with bagpipes, an absolutely perfect venue, a diverse and fun guest list, impeccably dressed women (and lots of sexy shoes), a rockin’-not-kiddin’-you band, and a groom that was reluctant to have his picture taken that kind of came around by the end.

Congratulations to the happy couple!!
