Danada House Fall Wedding in Wheaton, IL | Emily & Tommy



It was the most perfect fall day for an outdoor fall wedding at Danada House in Wheaton. Tommy and Emily choose to keep their wedding parties smaller. Emily had her two sisters for her maid and matron of honor while Tommy had three childhood friends. The flower girl was their niece, who did a pretty good job of unintentionally stealing the bride's thunder from time to time. Emily, however, is not the type of bride who would mind. She adores her niece as does Tommy!


Emily and Tommy have to be two of the nicest human beings! You can feel the their happiness when you are in a room with them. Sometimes things are just meant to be and obviously these two were meant for each other.


Their love story:

"We met through a mutual friend who invited us both out one night to play pool at a local dive bar. After that night, Tommy kept encouraging our mutual friend to invite me out any time they were getting together. We've since discovered that we've crossed paths unknowingly before -- once was at a dinner where Tommy was on the opposite end of the table and we didn't even know it. The other time was when my roommate (our mutual friend) had a party at our apartment while I was out of town and Tommy ended up sleeping on my couch. (That same couch is now in our house!)"


Throughout their wedding day I kept noticing the looks the couple gave one another. Many times while they did not notice. The way these two look at each other with such deep love and admiration is inspiring. What a gift to witness such love!


Emily and Tommy, thank you for trusting me to capture all the special moments of your special day. I have loved getting to know you both and cannot wait to see what your future holds!
