A few weeks ago, Gerald and I had the chance to return to my college town of Wheaton, IL to photograph Katie & Zack’s beautiful midwest wedding. We had a fun few days exploring Chicago beforehand, which included joining the wedding party for a night out at Second City Comedy Club, where  the infamous Steve Carrell and Tina Fey got their start. It was a great way to begin a wedding weekend!

Katie & Zack’s wedding day was gorgeous and sunny, which made for an absolutely perfect first look at Glen Ellyn Park. While at the park, we were also able to get some photos with Katie’s dad’s restored classic Chevelle. Their ceremony was held at her home church, Grace Lutheran of Glen Ellyn, and their reception was at the picturesque Cantigny Golf Club. Gerald and I were in love with all of their wedding day locations and had a great time taking photos all over Cantigny’s park and gardens with Katie, Zack, and their wedding party.

Katie & Zack, we feel so lucky that we not only got to be your wedding photographers, but that we can now call you friends. Thank you for your kindness, love, and laughter–we look forward to finally scheduling that infamous board game night! 😉 Family and friends, you may preregister to view all of Katie & Zack’s wedding photos here and you will receive an email when their entire gallery is ready.

This photo is so special to us, as it has three of our wedding couples in it. From left to right, Sarah & Derek, Gerald & I, Katie & Zack, and Kristin & Justin. We love all of you and had so much fun hanging out together!

Thanks to Jena & Audra from Affair to Remember for doing such an excellent job coordinating the wedding, and the all the other fabulous vendors who helped make the night a success:
