Chicago Wedding Photographer | Heather + Eric Wedding

heather + eric were married at county line orchard in hobart indiana, and although the rain did not stay away, and the ceremony had to be moved from outside to in, every moment flowed seamlessly from one to the next... 

photographing heather + eric's wedding was very special to me.  from the moment i first met heather we just clicked and when i arrived in the rotunda, where she was getting ready, it felt right to just run up and give her a big hug.  heather is warm, creative and fun and i have loved working with her and cannot wait to photograph her again!  i first met eric moments before the first look which is not very typical, but heather + eric opted out of an engagement session and so eric + i found ourselves making introductions moments before he saw his gorgeous bride for the first time.  eric is exactly how heather had described him...soft spoken, loving and utterly head over heels in love with his girl.

i loved every detail of this wedding and all of the diy touches were so fun and spoke to heather + eric's interests and personalities...
