Jake & Alyssa | Beautiful Wildflower Morton Arboretum Wedding

August 23, 2021

This beautiful day began in the Thornhill Education Center at Morton Arboretum in Chicago, IL. Just from the entryway to the center told me that this wedding would be a lovely occasion. From the flowers to the entrance hall to the ceremony room to the outside area just made it even better.


This wedding came to us during the unfortunate pandemic, and we were worry that day wasn't going to come, but when it did, boy did it come. Alyssa was a dream bride. She was very understanding and patient with us. She knew today was going to be a beautiful but hectic day. She trusted us completely. Throughout the day, we met her friends and family. One by one, different people would arrive, and I can see where she got her personality. Her mother made sure to keep her calm and smiling and laughing because if you are not having fun on your wedding day, then something isn't right, haha. Oh, and let me not forget about jake. He was a real trooper. It was my first time meeting him, and he made me like everyone else immediately. I honestly love shooting the guys because it's so laid back and easy.


As you scroll through their beautiful wedding day, I hope you'll be able to see in their images just how great of a fit it was for us to work together. This day was a dream, from the classic ceremony room to the beautiful oak tree portraits and the emotional toasts! I loved every part of this day, and I can't wait to share it with you.


Jake and Alyssa, I hope you're enjoying your days as husband and wife! What a gift it was to be able to shoot your wedding! Thank you for entrusting us with this enormous responsibility!!! Enjoy your day through my eyes!!
