Emily + Javi ~ Grand Ballroom at Joliet Union Station Wedding Photography

Could we have ordered a more perfect day for these two?! Oh my gosh – I cannot get over the absolutely gorgeous weather and perfect Easter day we had to celebrate Emily and Javi’s wedding! They chose this date because it is also Emily’s parent’s wedding anniversary and it was so beautiful to see the love and admiration between Emily and her parents throughout the day. Even more beautiful though, was Javi’s reaction to Emily finally being his wife after their ceremony. Make sure to scroll down to see those sweet, emotional moments. He had the whole room in tears!!

Emily & Javi ~ You were such a light for us during this past year!! Booking in the middle of a pandemic AND holding true to the intimate vision and plan you had for your day the entire time… keeping the focus on the most important part: the two of you being married at the end of the day. It was such a joy to be a part of and I’m going to miss all our check-in phone calls over the past year! We are sending you all of our love and can’t wait to keep up with you two in the years ahead!! XOXO ~ Christy & James

Just perfection!!! Congratulations again, you two!!
