This love was made in the most modern of places you can imagine… the Apple store.
Nathan & Bethany are just, a match. They fit. It makes sense on every level when you are around them because they vibrate at this frequency when they are together that smooths out all of their rough edges, and makes them glow from that other worldly place. Their relationship is literally what we all dream about, and yes folks, it started at the Apple store! No wonder their gadgets are so addicting. 😉 When we met I felt how much Nathan wanted to make every detail of this day perfect for her, and it was even more evident when he showed up to do a bunch of the decor himself the morning of his own wedding! You just can not get more dedicated than that… and the day was not only beautiful, but because they had created it, it seemed to vibrate on that same amazing frequency the whole day through. Shooting at the ultimate Chicago wedding venue, Salvage One, is always an absolute treat. This place curates an amazing collection of vintage wonders from furniture to stained glass, wall decor and even two gigantic elephants that guard the entrance to the ceremony space itself. It is magic and ever changing and has beautiful light… what else could a photographer ask for? This particular day I was able to sneak outside for one last shot of the back courtyard and that oh so famous “Chicago” sign but also show the “SO” as well which is often overlooked but just as cool. The delicate floral decor by A Stem Above was perfectly fall inspired without being too over the top, and if dinner wasn’t amazing enough, the PIES that came with it by Fig Catering were the icing on the cake. (Please excuse that terrible cake/pie pun thing I just did there). In short… meet Nathan and Bethany. They are insanely in love. They have impeccable taste in just about everything. They know how to party. And most important of all… they allowed me to come and document it all, and for that I am eternally grateful.
