Farrah & Gabe :: Suburban Chicago Wedding

Farrah and Gabe were married in the ‘burbs. They had their ceremony at St. Alexander’s Church in Villa Park, their reception at White Pines Golf Club in Bensenville, and we did their portraits at Morton Arboretum in Lisle. Needless to say, there was a good bit of running around. However, Farrah was smart enough to craft a timeline that allowed plenty of wiggle room. So, they were stress-free all day! Roomy timelines are a dream.

These two are just so kind. I say that about a lot of my clients, and I’m lucky to work with some of the nicest couples around. But really, these two are just good people. And Farrah is a teacher, which makes me love her even more. This day, however, she was a bride. A glowing, beautiful and blissful bride. And Gabe is now her husband. So happy to have been able to catch some of that! Enjoy these sneak peeks.

This was the first time I’ve been asked to “consult an engineer” before hanging a dress. Worth the shot though, right?

The bridesmaids were all “tres chic!”

Make-up took a little longer than expected, and–as a result–Farrah got dressed in 3 minutes flat. This is a girl who knows how to throw a dress on.

Love how Farrah’s sash looks in the ceremony photos.


Morton Arboretum was so GREEN. Perfect for portraits.

Farrah, you are BEAUTIFUL.


They had a cupcake bar at the reception (from Sweet Mandy B’s)!

And plenty of dancing.

My very last photo of the night. So happy to be married.
