The girls got ready in a HUGE hotel suite (full of big windows, thank you!). I LOVE when hair and makeup is brought to the bride/bridesmaids… more fun and relaxing that way. 😀


If you couldn't tell by her reaction… the flowers arrived!!! 😀


U-Um… I ADORE you!  This photo COMPLETELY represents your personality. 🙂




If this photo had a website… it would be 😀



 This was THE most amazing venue we've EVER seen for a ceremony/reception… hands down.  If you're a Chicago bride, and looking for amazingness… do two things. 1) hire bobbi+mike 2) get married at the Armour House (not necessarily in that order 😉 )


 I LOVE when couples write their own vows. 🙂 (we did!)






ARE YOU KIDDDDDING ME?! gorgeous with a capital G = Gorgeous!


 Yes, this is THEIR VW bus…. How COOL is that?!


 perfection. My favorite ❗

LOVED all of this red 😀




Proud of this photo. 🙂


 The whole family 😀



 AHHHHH!!! I don't know if I've mentioned this but… U-Um…. I LOVE YOUUUUU!!!!!


 Someone's had a long day!



 Towards the end of the night, Mike showed me THIS shot on the back of his camera and says, "DOESN'T SHE LOOK LIKE A BADASS?!" It's money! Mike's favorite ❓


CHICAGO. Writing about perfecto weddings is getting more and more difficult for me… especially ones like U-Um and Brian's!  Why, you ask? Because… I'm not a very good writer… I just don't have enough words to describe its amazingness… Luckily for you… we're pretty good photographers, so we can just show you its perfection! 😀 This wedding was a day that Mike and I will never forget… the entire day was full of win.

U-Um is the kind of person I wish that I were… ALWAYS full of smiles, incredibly patient, oh so passionate and the sweeeeeeetest of the sweet!  U-Um and Brian have two amazing kids (pictured above entering the reception)… so these two had a long engagement 😀  It was clear that a lot of time, energy and thought went into each and every detail there…. and, as you can see… it was all PERFECTO!

Speaking of their kids… Tyler, who's 2…. is a bit accident prone. 😀 At our initial meeting… which was at a park (the kids were along, and it seemed like a perfect idea)… While Tyler was coming down the slide, he somehow tumbled head first and landed RIGHT on his head…. within seconds, blood is gushing out of his face 🙁 SOOOO… our meeting was cut short with a visit to the emergency room. That's something that I'm guessing hasn't happened to too many wedding photographers 😀 At the end of the day, and a few stiches later… we were their photographers! 😀 

We adooooooore you two… and cannot WAIT until you two need family photos. 😀 

Much MUCH MUCH love!!!!!
