This is a very special wedding that I’m so excited to share with you! Chris and Christy’s wedding was the first that we’ve photographed since the beginning of Covid, and these two, along with their friends and family, made it the most perfect day!
Chris and Christy had originally planned a big, ginormous wedding at a different venue, but like everyone else getting married in the summer of 2020, their plans were forced to change! Rather than throw a pity party, they chose to get married anyways, giant party or not, because they knew they had found the one, and not even a worldwide pandemic would keep them apart! They pared down their guest list to their closest family and bridal party, relocated their ceremony and reception to Carriage Greens Country Club in Darien, and celebrated with laughter and tears and so much joy. Hundreds of additional friends and family joined them via Facebook Live for their ceremony.
Chris and Christy’s wedding day was a beautiful celebration of their beautiful love, and Marty and I were so honored to be a part of it!
Their outdoor ceremony overlooked the golf course — the view was beautiful, and their ceremony was perfectly simple and sweet!
These two built in plenty of time for portraits, and in spite of the heat, we stayed in the shade and had plenty of time for gorgeous, relaxed portraits of them, their family, and their bridal party!
Next up: an intimate, joyful reception, filled with so much beauty and love …and sweet treats, and a s’mores bar!
We snuck outside for a few sunset portraits before the dancing started!
