Jamie & Voltaire’s Wedding – Drury Lane

She caught his eye the first moment he saw her. And though varying circumstances kept the two apart for a bit, they eventually connected and the rest is history. =) I love hearing stories like Jamie & Voltaire’s…it just makes the wedding day that much more enjoyable. You see love in their eyes when they look at each other and know the depth and history behind each gaze.

Voltaire shared a little bit about how they met at their engagement session earlier this summer. We headed downtown to the Museum campus in Chicago. Below are a couple of my favorites. You can see the rest of their engagement session photos here.

As for the wedding day photos- their bridal party was a load of fun. Laughs all around…from the ladies singing along to 80’s musicals on DVD to the guys pretending to be graffiti artists during the portrait session. Enjoy the pics!

Jamie’s wedding veil was pretty long, so I wanted to incorporate it into the dress photo if possible-

The guys donned the traditional Filipino formal wear…a ‘barong’.

We had some time to grab some creative shots of the guys before we left the hotel-

Back up to the ladies room where the finishing touches were being applied-

I headed down a couple floors to grab this shot of Jamie as she left her hotel room-

Her wedding bouquet-

Instead of a hug, Voltaire and his father showed other forms of physical affection. =)

Creative portraits at a park- And though the summer sun was fierce, we took advantage of the light to grab these next couple shots-

Their table placecards for the guests-

I love the expressions on their faces-

And finally the bride and groom ring shot with pocket aces

Thanks Jamie and Voltaire for an awesome time! You guys were just too much fun! May your commitment to each other grow stronger day by day as you being your new lives together!

with love,
