Last Friday Brianna and Joe finally had their dream wedding! The last of my 2020 couples, they tied the knot last August with a beautiful backyard wedding. After another year of planning and a few more date change hiccups, the Palmer House became their dream wedding. Classy, elegant and timeless, the girls wore gold mirroring the exquisite detail work of the building. The gentleman looked dashing in their black tuxes.
Since the couple had their ceremony there wedding celebration was just that, one giant party...and lots of portraits before hand! Brianna owns, Every Kind of Beautiful, a hair styling salon that is just what every bride needs, Brianna included. Her team did an amazing job getting all nine of her bridesmaids ready plus a few family members.
Brianna and Joe are just the sweetest! From the start they put their trust in my photo vision 110% giving me the freedom to create. That kind of trust allows me to really be in my element and create incredible photos without limits. It's extremely freeing, especially for a creative!
We had to do a plan B option since the weather was not cooperating, but it worked out even for the better. Everyone had a little more time to relax and get ready and we never left the Palmer House for one single photo. Okay, maybe one at the very end of the night for that epic Chicago street photo.
Brianna and Joe, your family is as sweet as you both!!! I am so honored to have been able to capture your special celebration. Congratulations to you both!!! Enjoy the next chapter of your lives as husband and wife.
