Lauren + Ryan ~ Monte Bello Estate Wedding ~ Chicago Wedding Photography

I literally don’t even know where to begin with these two!! We just love them so much and their entire extended families and friends! This was the kind of wedding I left in tears because we were just so so grateful to get to do this for a living and to be inspired by such beautiful couples with such good hearts! It is completely evident as you scroll through this post how in love Lauren & Ryan are and how much FUN they have together. I could not stop smiling as I was putting this together and that’s exactly how I felt during their entire day too!!

Lauren & Ryan – Just… THANK YOU. Really. Thank you for being such amazing human beings and for being such an utter joy to work with. You made us so grateful that this is our job so many times during this process – from emails, to engagement, to wedding day – and we can’t thank you enough. Keep smiling together always!! (Though I’m sure that won’t be a problem!) We love you!! ~ XOXO Christy & James 🙂
