Real Wedding: Emily + Todd in Arlington Heights, IL

This past weekend I traveled up to the Chicago suburbs for Emily and Todd's Wedding. I think the sunshine followed me because it rained every day up until Thursday!
Emily and had been talking about the details she had been planning for the last year so it was really fun to see it all come together. I learned something too, I didn't know that the saying "Something old something new, somthing borrowed, something blue" ends with "a six pence in your shoe" so there you go, new fun fact. The trees and tulips were all in bloom in the park in downtown Arlington Heights which made for a really colorful backdrop for the bridal party pics. Since they thought it was going to rain they even had a green umbrella ready so even though it was sunny we put that to use. Emily has 4 sisters and Todd has 2 brothers and it was really neat to see how close both of their families have become through their relationship. I also got to shoot again with my associate photographer in Chicago, Meredith who is amazing, thanks Mer!! Congrats and best wishes to Emily and Todd!!! Their wedding gallery will be available at
