“When he wanted to take her picture, he didn’t tell her to smile, but told her “I love you” and her smile was more beautiful” // This quote reminded me of Denise and Justin and their smiles on the day of their beautiful Chicago Riverwalk Wedding.
I met Denise and Justin last November when we did their gorgeous engagement photo’s in Millennium Park (see it here). They were so amazing during their engagement session I knew their wedding would be just as fun! They were originally planning a larger wedding and as the planning took over their lives they decided to scale it back and do an intimate affair at the same stop where Justin proposed – resulting in their GORGEOUS Chicago riverwalk wedding!
The couple asked their closest friends and family to join them on a beautiful day in April as they vowed their love for one another as the sun shined on the river. Denise and Justin each had three of their closest friends there and I really love the photo’s that resulted from the ridiculous selfies! Denise wore a gorgeous mermaid wedding dress and under the layers of tulle you would find her signature converse sneakers – I absolutely love it when a bride rocks some fun shoes! Justin looked dapper in his green bowtie and matching green argyle socks – I had to get a shot of both of their shoes on the stairs 🙂
The day could not have been more perfect, it was full of sunshine, laughter and love. Denise and Justin had planned a low key dinner with their friends and family that evening to cap off a perfect day. There’s something to be said about making your wedding day your own! To the sweetest couple ever – Denise and Justin, thank you for letting me capture the joy of your beautiful day! Cheers, xo – Lisa
