Chicago Bound

I introduce May + Kirby, otherwise known as #kirbaybay2015.

I can’t even express our appreciation to May and Kirby for allowing us to be a part of their wedding day. We seriously had an epic time capturing their special moments!

From our first Skype meeting, I knew their wedding would be fabulous. May and Kirby are two of the most inspiring, kind, and overall exciting people to be around. Of course they would host their wedding at an awesome Chicago venue!

Their ceremony and reception were held at the Ravenswood Event Center. The ceremony and reception actually took place in the Atrium & Loft spaces, which are gorgeous industrial, naturally lit spaces, perfect for weddings. As I’m sure you’ve gathered, I’m obsessed with this venue! 🙂

In addition to the perfect venue, May and Kirby had a guest list of a lifetime. Friends and family traveled from all over the world to watch them exchange their (ugh! so epic) personal vows. They had us laughing and crying, along with everyone else in attendance. We truly couldn’t be more excited for these two!

Congrats to May and Kirby!

Down South

We recently traveled to one of our favorite vacation destinations, Anna Maria Island, and we had the pleasure of shooting this little film for a friend of ours down there.

With winter fast approaching here in the Midwest, we thought we’d share the vacation vibe with you all! 🙂

Cheers to travel!

New Trails

We meet again!

First, if you haven’t caught on yet, let me start by saying how much we adore outdoor weddings. Second, we also love a good winery. Put them together and you have a match made in heaven!

We were stoked to find out that Caitlin and Jason were hosting their big day at Villa Marie in Maryville, Illinois. Villa Marie is one of our favorite wineries in the area and it’s the perfect location for an outdoor ceremony.

Jason started the day with golfing a few miles down the road, while Caitlin did a little bridal prep in the hotel. After they were both dressed and ready, they had their first look in the vineyards. Not only is a winery perfect for an outdoor ceremony, but the vineyards make for an excellent first look!

If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of a first look, let me explain. A first look is when a bride and groom see each other before the ceremony. This gives the couple an opportunity to calm their nerves before they say “I do”, in addition to having a little extra time to spend together on their otherwise hectic day. We often encourage our couples to have a first look, especially when they think they might be anxious the day of the wedding. The saying everything else falls away when you see each other is often true, but it’s nice to have that moment privately. It’s hard to share your thoughts and feelings throughout the rush of the day, so recently couples have started scheduling time to do just that.

If you’re considering a first look, watch Caitlin and Jason’s same day edit below for inspiration.

Enjoy!
