Sometimes couples tell me, "we don't need photos of us getting dressed" But, if you could see all the feelings that happen before walking down that aisle, you'd be crazy to skip it. Eileen got ready with her 5 sisters and all their kids. It was this beautiful chaos with all the makeup, hair and snacking going on. She chose to wear her mother's wedding dress, a true vintage gem! Mom and her maid-of-honor sister helped her into it. Dad waited at the bottom of the stairs for his own first look. I get all giddy thinking about it. Dan got ready at home with his brother-also-best man. Both mom and Dad helped him into his groom clothes.
We then hopped on the limo, Dan was waiting around the corner. They chose to do first look, yay! Their ceremony was beautiful and included readings by their sisters and a bubbly exit. We then headed to the beach! So serene and beautiful, there were gorgeous blue colors out that day.
Their reception was at Firehouse Chicago and wow. The long tables fit just right! I love their indoor and outdoor spaces. They had the fire pit going and a s'mores buffet. We also snuck away for night photos by the balcony when she changed into her dancing dress. Overall a fabulous day! Congratulations you two!
