i call these two my magical monica & mike. because when all three of us are together, magical weather and sunshine beam down on us and make me jump up and down when i’m able to grab beautiful images of them. that and the fact that these two are a wicked beautiful couple and they deserve all the best.
it had been raining for a few weeks in chicago and unusually cold in june. but on their wedding day, the skies opened up and it was 75 and golden. when i talked to mike about it, he simply replied, “well after 7 years we better have awesome weather on our wedding day.”
i loved observing how mike watched his bride and took her in. more than enough to make your heart melt. and when monica teared up over her sister’s maid of honor speech or when mike’s mother cried as she held her son while they danced, there wasn’t a dry eye in the place.
mike was right, they deserved an awesome day. and that’s just what they got.
