We shot more weddings in 2014 than any other year. They were all pretty awesome- we really do get the best couples- but Matt & Mary Grace's in late March was possibly my favorite.
Matt and I have been friends for years. We met when we were color correctors and editors at a big Chicago wedding studio, back when we were babies. He's an incredibly talented artist and all-around hilarious, awesome guy. I was so honored when they asked me to shoot their Oak Park wedding. The day was filled with many thoughtful details, a lot of laughing, and yes, ok, some tears.
A performance by one of my favorite Chicago bands, who the couple happen to be members of, Weird Bananas topped the reception off. I mean, a gong and a trombone? Yes! The day ended with seeing one of the most amazing skies of my life (which Heather, my date for the evening, still makes fun of me for) and an extremely fun ride home on an empty Blue Line train.
