Jenny & Tony ::: Wedding

Ahh! It has taken me two weeks to get this blog post together and two reasons it has not gotten up until now...1.The minute I finished shooting the wedding I headed home with interns waiting for me to start the 10 day internship program. 2. This wedding was BEYOND incredible so much so that I took almost 4000 photos which I normally max out around 2500 or so.. but Jenny and Tony planned this day so impeccably that I couldn't help but keep the shutter button down almost the whole day!
When I first heard from Jenny about possibly shooting her wedding I was so thrilled as we have so much in common, she just kept discovering more and more of what we had in common from my blog and such so that when we finally met in person with Tony and my sister Natalie all four of us became such fast friends! That is my kind of business! :) We did their engagement session last summer, which would have to be up there with the top engagement shoots I've done! It was ridiculous that yet again we just couldn't stop shooting! You can check that 6 hour shoot out **here**!! Anyways back to the wedding!! I brought along two of my past interns, Cassie Schott and Laura Dart who both have incredible eyes for photography! (I snuck a few of their pics in the slideshow cause it just made it complete;) We shot for about 11 hours starting at Cantigny were the girls were getting ready in a little cottage in the woods that was just precious!

We then headed to the ceremony at College Church in Wheaton where their guest packed out the place! I don't think I've shot a wedding with that many people! Amazing!

Right afterwards they had a fun casual lunch reception for everyone who came. It was so great and personal...kinda felt like a talent show or something with a TON of their friends coming up and singing or making slideshows or videos and even Tony playing piano and singing to Jenny! It was perfect.
Later on, after a fun afternoon of pictures at Cantigny they had the traditional Korean Tea Ceremony... this was the second one that I've shot and am always so fascinated by it! I LOVE culture! They then transitioned into a formal dinner reception for their closer friends and family! Whew. It was quite the day but one not soon to be forgotten!!! Jenny and Tony I love you both so very much! I'm so blessed that God has brought you two into my life! Your love for each other and those around you is mind blowing!! God bless your future together! :):)
