Shaan + Katie ~ Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum Wedding ~ Chicago Wedding Photography (Day 2, Part 2)

(If you guys missed part 1 of Katie & Shaan’s gorgeous wedding – go read that first!)


Now – here is the remainder of Katie and Shaan’s absolutely beautiful and emotional wedding day!!


(Again… further proof that having a first look does not take anything away from the moment the bride walks down the aisle! Look at Shaan’s face and emotion… so sweet.)

I couldn’t get over the beautiful details!

Katie, Shaan and I snuck out onto the bird walk at the Nature Museum to grab some shots at dusk before the reception started – and I’m so glad we did!

Time for the fun to begin!!

This group LOVED to dance! And I loved documenting it! It’s so much fun when everybody is having a blast!

Of course – having a bride & groom on the dance floor that LOVE to dance themselves really helps everybody else get going… LOVE these two and their dancing! 🙂


Stay tuned for the final day (day 3) of celebrations!
