When you leave a wedding and can’t stop smiling, you know it will be a fun one to edit! This was Lindsay & Brandon’s day completely!
The first time I met with Lindsay to start talking about their timeline for the day, I was beyond excited. Having been referred by two of my past brides (thank you Rachel and Amy!), there was no doubt in my mind that this day would be a blast to photograph. From start to finish, Lindsay’s smile never left her face. (And Brandon’s either after seeing Lindsay for the first time!) 😉 Through their first look on their hotel rooftop that was so windy her veil flew off, to the on and off chance of rain for their outdoor ceremony (which thank God still happened outside!), to their RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING dance floor, Lindsay and Brandon planned one hell of an awesome day.
I could not stop smiling while going through their photos and my hope is that they feel the same. I’m so excited to share their beautiful Chicago wedding day at Lacuna Lofts!
