A Backyard Estate Wedding | Stephanie + BJ

Sep 15, 2022

backyard estate wedding chicago

Stephanie and BJ’s couldn’t have picked a better day to get married! When they began planning their wedding, they quickly realized that they wanted to get married on Stephanie’s parent’s property. Among other things, this would allow their sweet dog, Oakley, to be a part of their wedding day from beginning to end! The only condition was that they really did need beautiful weather for the backyard estate wedding that they were planning… and of course, their wedding day dawned without a single cloud in the sky! The sun lit up the whole sky from the beginning of the day until the very end, when we took their sunset portraits before Stephanie and BJ walked into their tented reception, lit with twinkly lights, candlelight, and glittering chandeliers. It was absolutely perfect, and such a beautiful thing to photograph!

Stephanie and BJ are two incredible people, and together, they’re basically the definition of “power couple”! They own a thriving business together, which combines their passion for athleticism with their passion for changing lives and helping young athletes achieve incredible things! And while I typically get to know my couples at their engagement sessions, I’m always so impressed when I get to the wedding day and see the people who surround them. Stephanie and BJ have some amazing friends and family, supporting them and loving them and cheering them on as they begin their new journey as husband and wife! It was such a beautiful privilege to photograph their wedding day, and we couldn’t be happier for them! Congratulations to Stephanie and BJ!
