The first time I met Chris and Claire, we shared life stories and sipped on our tasty drinks at Collectivo for nearly two hours. Truthfully, I think we talked more about life and our adventures than we did their wedding. That’s just the type of people they are. Super calm and easy-going. I felt an instant connection with them. I couldn’t help but notice the way Claire would glance at Chris and get all giddy. There was no doubt in my mind that these two shared a special bond that most relationships lacked. It was almost as if they were on their first or second date but in reality, they’d been dating for nearly a decade.
Chris and Claire said “I DO” on a gorgeous August day filled with warm rays of sunshine, a lot of love and plenty of laughter. They chose to have their family and friends continue the celebration at the Schlitz Audobon Nature Center where they feasted on an amazing meal, roasted marshmallows at their s’mores bar and danced the night away.
Claire looked absolutely stunning walking arm and arm with her father down the aisle.
I could photograph these to all day, every day.
I’m pretty sure my heart skipped a beat and I did a happy dance when I captured this photo.
Chris & Claire – Thank you for trusting in me to document your wedding day. It was truly an honor and I wish you nothing but a lifetime of happiness.
