Paul + Sam | A Crystal Tree Golf & Country Club Wedding | Orland Park, Illinois

October 18, 2019

There is nothing better than waking up to sunshine on an Autumn morning and knowing I get to photograph a wedding for two very special people!  Oh but wait, I believe there IS something better.

It’s even better when I arrive and walk into the Getting Ready Bridal Suite and see my bride and she is so excited to see me that she runs to give me a hug!  (Yes…I’m a hugger!)

There were lots of people in the suite getting ready and you could feel the calmness!  The hairspray and bubbly was flowing but most of all…but just the feeling of excitement was palpable.

After dating for many years and having a long engagement…the day had finally arrived for Paul & Sam to officially become one!  It was a rain-free, full of laughter, peace-filled day that was topped off with a whole lot of LOVE.  The friendships that surrounded them were tight and the family was was even tighter…just as it should be.

This was such a beautiful day!  Everyone involved in the day was so welcoming and joy filled.  It was perfect and I was so honored to be chosen to document this love story and wedding day!

Congrats Paul & Sam! I hope you are relaxing and enjoying yourself on the beach!  XOXO
