A true fairy tale wedding is what comes to mind when we think of Maribeth + Tim’s big day. With Tim getting ready at his home and his lovely bride to be getting ready at the GORG Thompson Hotel, we couldn’t help but smile at how ridiculously excited everyone was. We’ll also be the first to admit that there’s no such thing as too much tulle when it comes to 1.) wedding dresses and 2.) flower girl dresses. Not only was Maribeth able to incorporate beautiful shades of light pink and blush into her shoes and jewelry, but the soft colors she chose paired perfectly with her ceremony at St.Mary of the Angels. Sometimes, as photographers, we have to remind ourselves to just take a step back and let things happen. As Maribeth headed up the church steps to greet her future groom that’s exactly what happened and we gushed when Maribeth told us it was one of her favorite images from the day. With as busy as a wedding day can be, it’s so great when we see a couple carve out a fleeting moment of alone time like Maribeth + Tim did for themselves in Lincoln Park after the ceremony. If you find yourself creating a timeline for your wedding day that seems less than ideal, make sure revisit what points in the day you can slow down and take it all in like these two did! Guests were greeted at Gallery 1028 by a post card guest book and an Instax camera (let the selfies begin!) which was a really fun surprise for those expecting your typical guest book. If the picturesque + eclectic vibe (ahem, did you see their sweets table??) of this beautiful reception was what Maribeth + Tim were going for, then we couldn’t be more enrolled. Well done you two.
