Morgan and Sean: Skyline Loft Wedding

Words fall short.  Epically short.
To say thank you is such an understated attempt at describing my gratitude for being given the honor of documenting your wedding day.  I’m left with a thousand grateful memories.  Watching Sean’s face when he first saw you.  Your amazing bridal party helping stand guard to make your first look perfect.  Seeing the two of you twirl together.  Watching the little glances you shared on your day.  Jan – the selfie stick.  (!!!)  Seeing the way you love your family and friends.  The precious ring bearer and flower girl picking up all the petals she dropped.  My heart is full and grateful and loves you to pieces.
Here’s a glimpse as to why I’m left squealing behind my computer and slightly teary with gratitude for the two of you.

Also, thank you to these wonderful vendors who added love and beauty to their wedding day:

Morgan…let’s just go ahead and state the obvious:  You are BEAUTIFUL.  (Inside and out)

I love helping my brides create special moments throughout their wedding day.  One of my favorites is when they choose to do a special reveal to their bridesmaids.  The squeals and the joy that take over the room are unforgettable.

Another moment I love?  First looks.  I love them because of the intimate moment they allow.  I love seeing the way the bride and groom melt into each other.  I love that they have the freedom to talk and embrace for as long as they want.  And…the images are pretty wonderful, too…

Meet “Jan” the selfie stick.

A huge shout out to Chicago Trolley for their amazing transportation!  And for creating opportunities for such beautiful images…

These precious ladies are both beautiful and SO incredible…

Meet the awesome groomsmen…

These groomsmen deserve an award as they stood guard to help us get our moment at the Honeycomb structure in Lincoln Park.  It was worth the wait…

Then we headed over to Burnham Park for a moment.  The view was breathtaking…

 

Morgan and Sean got married at the ever-so-stunning Skyline Loft in Chicago.

The way Sean’s grandmother watched her great granddaughter and gazed at Morgan left me a little teary…

One of my favorite parts of any wedding ceremony is when the flower girl and the ring bearer walk down the aisle.  You never know what’s going to happen.  In this case – as soon as she dropped some petals they both started the work of picking them all up.

And then the ring bearer sprinted the rest of the way…

THESE TWO…  Holy buckets of gorgeous.

Let’s just go ahead and talk about how stunning these details are…  I was in a constant state of swoon.  (Navy is my favorite.  As well as a little sparkle…)  Rachel of Life in Bloom simply outdid herself.

Morgan and Sean – I just adore you both…
