caroline + brett get married.


so i met this amazing woman on instagram a while back.  we fell in love at first glance of our ig accounts.  she sent me a friendship bracelet and the rest is history!  well, that is how it started anyway!  it was roughly a year after we 'found' each other that we actually met face to face.  i knew i loved her before, but after meeting her in real life, i felt so at ease.  we just connected.  and her fiancé, brett, was just as amazing!  we spent a saturday evening in chicago chatting and laughing over drinks.  it was a night i will never forget!

 shortly after that, she asked me to photograph her wedding.  i was quite humbled to say the least.  long story short, here is a look at her and brett's beautiful day.  just like that night we met, i will never forget this wedding!  who can forget pinatas, a bouncy castle, life size hamster balls and a taco truck for dinner at a no kids allowed wedding! caroline and brett, thank you.  from the bottom of my heart.  thank you for trusting me with your amazing and unforgettable day.
