Elgin, IL Wedding: Adriana & Jimmy

When I met Adriana & Jimmy, they said they only wanted a small intimate church ceremony. When I caught up with them closer to the wedding day, they had chosen to add a small family dinner. Long story short, there were a TON of people at the church. Little did they know how many folks cared about them and wanted to share in their wedding bliss. They had all the traditional hispanic touches, the lasso, candle, bible, arras and even had mariachi! 

After the beautiful ceremony, we went to Lord's Park for newlywed snuggles and photos. It... was... cold. Sooooooo unseasonably windy and harshly cold. Jimmy's son and his girlfriend were jacket assistants and helped me keep Adriana warm between shots. 

We then went to their family dinner and heard a wonderful toast by Jimmy's older brother in which he lovingly tricked his brother into a first dance. Not a dry eye in the house. Thanks you two for letting me come along in your sweet journey, cheers to your love!

Centre of Elgin Birthday Party: Baby R turns ONE!

Baby R has a lifetime of cold, snowy birthdays ahead of her. The weather stopped no one though, her whole family on both sides was there to celebrate her, princess style! This party was really special to me as well, I went to High School with her mom and auntie. Seeing their children grow and knowing how close they all are is incredibly heart warming.

Congratulations Baby R! Keep the sparkle going!
