Kristen + Steve | Chicago Wedding

One of my favorite things about my jobs are the people I meet, the connections I make, and the places it brings me. I met Kristen + Steve through Steve’s brother and sister-in-law at their wedding a few years back, and was thrilled when they asked me to come to Chicago and capture their beautiful day at The Monte Bello Estate. It should be noted that it was about 100 degrees that day, plus humidity, plus a tornado warning that turned into a major storm just minutes before the ceremony that JUST missed the entire property…aka a dry, tornado free ceremony. A true wedding miracle, but in all reality-nothing could have swiped the smiles and joy off of Kristen + Steve’s faces…it couldn’t be contained and I was so thrilled to capture it all for them on this beautiful, Hawaiian-inspired day.
