A Fall Wedding at Elements at Water Street: Monica & Ryan

post filed in:

Wedding

 

Monica & Ryan got married this past weekend and their day was truly a day to remember! From the beautiful details put together in the morning, first look with Dad to the fantastic string and brass instruments at their wedding ceremony. Each detail was thoughtfully put together and their day was perfect. πŸ™‚

While there were so many fun parts of their wedding day, I wanted to share just the first five that came to mind. A Wedding Wednesday tradition…

 

#5. Kicking us off was getting to do photos with Spike in the morning! Who is Spike? I’m so glad you asked! Spike is Ryan’s pet lizard and this cold blooded buddy did great when we took him outside for a couple quick pictures with Ryan. πŸ™‚ Spike was my first lizard I have ever photographed and I think it went pretty well. πŸ˜‰

#4. Mom helping Monica get ready in the morning. πŸ™‚ This is always a special part of the day, but especially this past weekend. You’ll have to scroll to see what I mean…

#3. The couples first look! Monica & Ryan chose to have their first look when Monica walked down the aisle and it was truly a special moment. The looks on their faces say it all. πŸ™‚

#2. Doing Bride/Groom photos at the Naperville Riverwalk! We didn’t have a ton of time for photos after the ceremony, but I loved this part of the day because we found the PERFECT Fall backdrop and Monica & Ryan were just game to roll through lots of fun things together. πŸ™‚

#1. Finally, the best part of Monica & Ryan’s wedding was their first dance. The couple danced to Blessings by Florida Georgia Line (I love this song!) and you could just tell how much the song meant to them. A song they discovered by accident! Not only that, Monica & Ryan learned a few fun dance moves. πŸ™‚ So sweet and so perfect. πŸ™‚

 

Monica & Ryan, thank you so much for having me. πŸ™‚ Your day was truly perfect and I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple. πŸ™‚ Now, grab a blanket and snuggle up. Your sneak peek is live!
