Via Vecchia Winery Wedding | Emma & John

I'm so very excited to share these, some of my favorite photos from Emma & John's wedding day!  It's been such a pleasure working with this sweet couple from day one -- from their engagement session, to planning their first look, to seeing their vision for their wedding day come to life -- it was every bit as amazing as I knew it would be, and then some!

Emma & John made their wedding day such a beautiful representation of who they are as a couple -- they read letters and exchanged gifts with each other before sharing the sweetest First Look and taking portraits downtown and at Schiller Park. We had perfect weather for their outdoor ceremony at Via Vecchia Winery. Midway through the ceremony they surprised their mothers by presenting them with rose stems and special songs played in their honor, and I think there was hardly a dry eye! Then everyone went inside to celebrate the happy couple with delicious food, toasts, cake and donuts, and an epic dance floor. 

Emma & John, your love is inspiring and I'm so thankful I got to share this amazing day with you!! I hope your first week as Mr. and Mrs. has been absolutely wonderful!
