TOMMY + JACKIE
CHICAGO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER: MELISSA MARIE PHOTOGRAPHY: HYATT REGENCY CHICAGO + LACUNA LOFT WEDDING: TOMMY + JACKIE
I got a message from a dear previous bride of mine that her brother was likely to get engaged soon. I asked her: "Is his fiance' a good fit?" She teared up and said: "She's perfect!" Having spent the last year with them both I can now say: "They both are!" There were a lot of obstacles with local requirements changing. (And then re-changing 2 days after their wedding!) (:
I never knew how they actually felt about it all because they never once complained. I didn't know how they felt about all the crazy circumstances, but I what I did know, their wedding only confirmed all the more for me:
Stressing doesn't change your circumstance.
The people in your life who care about you, will go to the ends of the earth to make your dreams come true.
Laughing is good for the soul.
If you've prioritized the right things, you'll not have regrets.
The quality of your friends says more about you than them.
I have the best job because it's for the best people.
I now see what the groom's sister sees. They are the perfect fit for each other!
I'm not taking for granted that I got to capture your incredible wedding day Tommy + Jackie! You guys are incredible!
As was your wedding!! Cannot wait to see what joy, fun, and adventure you have in the future.
