What a way to kick off the start of my 2015 wedding season! This wedding has been a long time coming, Kristin & Joe have been together for 10 years! They were married at the Bottom Lounge surrounded by family and friends on a gorgeous Chicago spring day.
Also, a huge shout out and thank you to my friend Liz of Elizabeth Greve Photography for being an absolutely amazing second shooter.
Before the first look with Joe, Kristin had a moment with her dad.
Then it was on to the first look with Joe.

Any advice for couples currently planning their wedding?
Do what you want, not what your families want you to do.
For once I finally remembered and had time to get a photo with the bride and groom. Kristin and Joe thank you so much for having me there to photograph your wedding. You guys and your family are the best! Wishing you many years of love and happiness!!
