QUINN + GABRIELLA
CHICAGO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER: HYATT LODGE OAK BROOK WEDDING: MELISSA MARIE PHOTOGRAPHY: QUINN + GABI
I have never in my 17 years of weddings haven't at least at some point had to remind the couple to "smile!" (Even though "Fun & Happy are two of the words most used by my couples on how they want their wedding to feel.) These two... They are and exude pure HAPPINESS! I think that at their core is who they are. But I do think a few things they did on their wedding day helped shine that a little brighter.
They took the time to do the things they wanted to do. Gabi did fun wedding Tik Tok's with her girls. She didn't rush her time getting her dress on with her mom. She spent time laughing, crying, and soaking in the moment with her dad. She changed into her party dress not necessarily when it said to on her timeline, but rather, when she wanted to. And when that dance floor opened up with the Samba (she's Brazilian), they went all out and never left. I say all the time. It is YOUR day! Do it YOUR way! You want chicken nuggets from Chik-fila? Why the heck not? You wanna soak in the sunset with a brew and your babe instead of going table to table? Do it! You'll never regret it.
Quinn + Gabi...Ya'll are legit one of the most over the top (in the most phenomenal way) happy couples I've had. I know that not everyday in life will bring smiles, but I hope that every time you look upon the images of your incredible wedding day, it will bring you right back to every happy moment all over again! I don't know what the future holds for ya'll but I do know it will be filled with laughter, happiness, and a whole lotta FUN! So happy for you!
