Lauren + Derrick ~ Hotel Arista Naperville Wedding Photography

I love so much about these two!! I love that Lauren is a Type-A planner like me. 😉 I love that Derrick is happy to let her plan and appreciated so much all the hard work she did. (Like James – haha.) I love that they met out in Wrigleyville during the Cubs’ World Series run. (I mean – what are the odds you meet your future spouse out celebrating a World Series berth?!) I love that they keep each other smiling and that they love everyone around them so well. It was so awesome to be witness to all of this on their wedding day and we’ve been so humbled to be a part of this whole process with them!!

Lauren & Derrick ~ Thank you for having us along on this beautiful ride! 🙂 You two are so so good together and it was a joy capturing this little bit of your love story for you to look back on always. We hope these photos do your gorgeous wedding day justice!! 🙂 XOXO ~ Christy & James

Such a beautiful day!!!
