What a wedding!!  I could write a book on Heather and Paul--I had such a lovely time getting to know them and their amazing families.  After photographing their engagement session last October, I was literally counting down the days to September!!  Heather and Paul have such a fun and genuine chemistry when they're around each other, and it's so easy to feel comfortable hanging out with them and taking their pictures.

As soon as Heather and Paul told me the ceremony and reception were going to be held at Galleria Marchetti, I was elated--it's one of my all-time favorite wedding venues, and I knew it would be the perfect outdoor setting for their stylish, elegant Chicago wedding.  Personal touches made their big day even more special; heartfelt notes to each other to read before their first look, a choreographed first dance, and even the book of matches from their proposal restaurant to light their unity candle.  Paul and Heather, cheers to you, and I wish you all the happiness in your new life together!
