A Summer Wedding at Cantigny: Libby & CJ

post filed in:

Wedding

 

Libby & CJ got married this past weekend on the East Lawn at Cantigny Park and their day was truly perfect. ๐Ÿ™‚ From getting ready photos in the morning to their packed dance floor. These two thought of all the details for their wedding and it was totally worth it!

While there were so many fun moments, I wanted to share just the top five. A Wedding Wednesday tradition. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

#5. Kicking us off with number 5, all the fun details! I especially loved the gold seals that Libby stamped herself. It’s a unique detail and it was fun getting to work them into the detail photos in the morning. ๐Ÿ™‚

#4. The weather. I feel like this comes up often. There is so much excitement and anticipation leading up to a wedding day. Having perfect weather is just icing on the cake. The best part of Saturday? While it did rain for a little bit, the skies totally cleared just 5 minutes before the first look and all the photos we planned to take outside. ๐Ÿ™‚ Truly awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

#3. Getting to be back on the East Lawn! Y’all this location is stunning! You’ll have to scroll to see what I mean. ๐Ÿ˜‰

#2. Coming in at number 2, the live band that Libby & CJ had at their wedding reception! I love when couples choose to have live music and One Night Band truly rocked out all night!

#1. Finally, getting to do veil photos with Libby & CJ. ๐Ÿ™‚ These are always my favorite and I felt like they were extra special this time because we did they right after their wedding ceremony. Their first photos together as husband and wife. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Libby & CJ, thank you so much for having me. The love you two share is so evident and getting to capture it on your wedding day was truly special. I’m wishing you all the best as you start this next adventure as husband and wife. ๐Ÿ™‚

Now, grab a blanket and snuggle up. Your sneak peek is live!
