Phil & Averi’s Wedding

I have known Phil for awhile now…though I can’t seem to remember when we met. In college, Phil was a beast at rugby and now they both currently teach within the Chicago public school systems. It was a blast being able to capture this special moment for my friends.

First off, a couple shots that we took earlier this year. These two images were enlarged and on display in the reception hall foyer. Many thought these were in front of backdrops, but I assure you…they were not. =)

But enough with that…on to the wedding images!

Averi’s dress was beautiful…

We had some gorgeous diffused light coming in through the window…

I’m not sure why he’s handing me an empty cheese pack…but it’s a cute pic… =)

The bouquets, centerpieces, and boutonnieres were done by my good friends Grace and Theresa. You can learn more about Grace’s flower boutique, Vale of Enna at her website. 

Since Phil & Averi are both teachers, Theresa & Grace incorporated apples into some of the arrangements- such creativity!

After the ceremony was over…they shared a little ‘happy dance’  =)

She’s getting all caught up in election season…vote for her in 08!

The MC…

While on the dance floor…these two were…well…you can ask them what they were doing.  I think it’s a new dance move…

Thanks for an awesome time!  May the Lord continue to guide you both as you live this life as one.
