From our very first meeting with Sean, Meaghan and her mom, Mary Ann, I had such a great feeling about these two and their families. I remember getting choked up just talking with them about the importance of family and what an honor it is to capture these fleeting moments for our clients. Over the course of the next year of planning, I got to know them even better and it became even more obvious that they have such beautiful hearts and are surrounded by an amazing support system.
We were blessed to have an absolutely perfect day to celebrate Meaghan and Sean for their outdoor garden wedding at the Chicago Botanic Gardens! Truly – after some weeks with 100 degree temperatures, we were graced with a day in the low 70’s and an evening in the upper 60’s… just perfect! These two were surrounded by people from all over the world who had come to show them their love and it was so amazing to capture all the moments, big and small.
I have to give an extra shout out to Abby at Heirloom Event Co. for orchestrating the day down to the minute and making sure it all flowed so smoothly! And also an extra cheer for Kristina at Kristina Lorraine Photography, who came down to assist/3rd shoot with us for the day!! It was a joy to have you, love!!
Meaghan + Sean ~ Thank you so incredibly much for your kind words, gestures, and love throughout this entire process!! You two are such a beautiful couple and the way you love one another is really, truly inspiring. We hope you continue to look at each other with such adoration your entire lives!! Sending you so very much love now and always! XOXO ~ Christy & James
What a day!!! I just loved every minute (which you can maybe tell from the insane amount of photos I shared here – haha)!
