Since we first met Bill and Ally back on NYE of last year in the freeeeeezing cold of a crazy snow storm – moments after Bill popped the question – we LOVED these two!!! They have this infectiously joyful energy about them, and their love is so, so beautiful!! So naturally, when they asked us to be a part of their wedding day, we couldn’t turn them down – even though it was to be held the day after Thanksgiving (a prized holiday in my family)!! We headed back to Chicago on Thanksgiving night to prep for Bill and Ally’s big day, and were probably just as excited for it as they were!!
These two are as kind as they come, and have hearts of GOLD! It was so unbelievably fun to watch them interact with their family and friends throughout the day! These two make everyone around them smile from ear to ear, and bring so much happiness with them wherever they go – even in the crazy frigid temps we had on their wedding!
Bill & Ally ~ We cannot thank you two enough for being such amazing human beings, and such wonderful people to work with!! We consider you two friends, and are so very honored to have documented your absolutely stunning and joyful wedding day!! We hope these photos live up to your wildest expectations and make you continue to smile for years and years and years to come!! Sending you all our love and best wishes for a wonderful life ahead!!! xoxo ~ Christy & James

I didn’t mess with the chronological order of these photos at all… unknowing to us – these two were reading their love letters to each other at THE EXACT SAME TIME. I love this series below!
AHhhhh!!!! Just SO. MUCH. LOVE. Love Love Love. xoxo
