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!

Elgin Riverwalk Baptism in Elgin, IL: Kassandra

Kassandra began her day at church. Baptisms are so special, the whole family comes together to bless their child. You can feel the love across the pews for sure. After mass, we headed out to the Elgin Riverwalk for some photos. Kassandra loved her necklace and bracelet gifts from her godparents, she kept her hands clasped to avoid losing them. Congratulations sweet girl!
