He liked her first. =) Grace + Joe get married!

These two knew of each other back in the day. And while they were ‘just friends’…somewhere down the line…Joe realized he ‘liked’ Grace. =) And while it may have taken some time for her to realize the ‘awesomeness’ of Joe…they are now happily married and in the same city (down south in Atlanta)!

Georgia on my mind? Definitely not! It’s Chicago all the way in these wedding photos! We started out at the Hilton Ohare – the hotel that is located in Chicago’s Ohare Airport- We grabbed some photos of Joe and the groomsmen-

The groomsmen looking sharp-

A little more creative with this photo- Gotta love the groom’s smile-

We headed down to Chicago’s West Loop to where Grace was getting ready-

The bridal party gift? TOMS shoes! And if you’ve never heard of these- check them out- a great way to get a pair of trendy shoes and help the others in need!

We took photos before the ceremony- and we started at a local park in Chicago’s West Loop!

We headed to the Salvation Army Church for their wedding ceremony and reception!

Her grand entrance!

I love my job as a wedding photographer- I get the best seat in the house to see the ‘real emotions’

Went upstairs to take a photo from the Salvation Army Church balcony

One of the most memorable first kisses – EVER!

Afterwards- their prayer time together was such a special moment-

Loved these aprons!

The wedding reception!

Congrats to Grace + Joe! May your lights shine brighter as you support and love one another as ONE! May your strength and humility towards one another always be rooted in Christ.

With love,

Your wedding photographer,
