Evan + Grace’s Chicago wedding was so fun and unique! Just like the two of them! Evan is a rad photographer and Grace is a former roller derby girl! Grace and I were friends in College when we worked on the newspaper together for years. I was stoked when she thought of me for her wedding! I flew out to Chicago for their Cinco de Mayo wedding with the threat of rainstorms all weekend. The weather-people were not incorrect! A few rain dances later and we luckily had gorgeous overcast weather their entire wedding day!
Their first look was so expressive, I couldn’t narrow down which images to include! They were the first bride & groom I’ve ever heard of that wanted their photos on The “El” and on the lawn of an awesome birdhouse house! They were totally up for anything and I love that. Another first: The Jurassic Park theme song for the father/daughter dance. Rad rad rad. Enjoy the image overload!
