CHRISTINE & AARONSt. Josephs Downers Grove and Pinstripes Oak Brook, Illinois Wedding

Christine and Aaron are married!

 

This was really an incredible day — and as you look through this, I dare you to find a photo where Christine is not absolutely grinning from ear to ear…

 

I met up with the girls at Christine’s childhood home, while my second shooter, Erica, captured the boys getting ready at the new home Christine and Aaron just bought together. We all gathered at the beautiful St. Joseph’s church in Downers Grove for the ceremony, and then headed to Cantigny Park for portraits before the party got started over at Pinstripes Oakbrook.

 

(It was also about 95 degrees in September, so a major kudos to Christine and Aaron and their family and bridal party for keeping up with us during photos!)

 

Christine and Aaron, it was a true honor to capture this day for you! Best wishes for many, many happy years together!

 

(Christine, you also win for hands down the BEST father daughter dance I’ve ever seen. Your dad is a keeper!)
