Lauren and Patrick are just the sweetest couple! And little Payton, well I am slightly obsessed with that cute little ball of energy!!!! We played games, she was a wonderful photo assistant and we even did some dancing at the end of night!
The couple met through Lauren's high school best friend, Sarah (one of her matron of honors). Sarah had attended college with Patrick in Iowa and when he moved back to Illinois she introduced them. After a month of chatting, the couple went on their first date, to a Bulls game. However, Patrick was a little quiet during their date because he texted Lauren from his car apologizing for not talking. Now, several states, a dog and a toddler later it was their turn to walk down the aisle!
Their wedding day was beautiful. Slightly warm for the middle of September with an overcast sky, but the sun peaked out just in time for sunset photos creating a magic glow over the lake. The ladies looked stunning in their emerald green dresses and the guys equally handsome in their suits. Lauren was breathtaking in her fitted Ms Mode gown and their reception was a setup so of timeless elegance with a simple display of candles and ceramic pumpkins.
Lauren and Patrick, thank you for trusting me to capture your special day. I have loved getting to know you both (and Payton) and wish you nothing but tons of love and laughter in the years ahead!!! CHEERS!!!!!
