Hillary + AJ ~ River Roast Chicago Wedding

I am over the moon excited to share this wedding day with you guys!!! I feel like we have been anticipating this day for so long! After a winter full of freezing, dreary days – Chicago shone it’s light on us and gifted us with a beautiful early spring day in the city. Seeing as AJ & Hillary are two of the kindest, most genuine people we’ve met, it should come as no surprise that their friends and family were equally amazing. We had the best time spending the day with their entire group and felt so much love from everyone – and they just made our job so easy to do.

The day had a lot of moving parts and so I couldn’t wrap this up without mentioning the amazing, Jaci from Clementine Custom Events. She made sure every minute of the day was accounted for and kept everything moving so smoothly, as always.

Hillary + AJ ~ You were the perfect start to our (official) wedding season and we cannot say thank you enough times for your kind, generous, and humble hearts! You two are the perfect compliments to each other and it was such a joy to document your love story. Thank you for whole heartedly trusting us and our vision. We just adore you! XOXO ~ Christy & James

Love!! Just the perfect start to our wedding season! We love these two and their whole amazing crew!
