This wedding was special in a number of ways, but there is one thing that I will always remember about this day. Gabe and Brad heard me mention in our meetings that my wife is starting her photography classes in January. While sharing that with them, I also mentioned that we would love to be a husband/wife team one day. When they called me back, they mentioned that one condition on me photographing their wedding would be that I bring my wife along and let her shoot with me. “Even if nothing turns out,” they said! We were both so excited! So, this wedding will go down in the rojo history books as our first husband/wife wedding! I came to find out that Gabe and Brad both love to be a catalyst to help people reach their goals/dreams. A very SPECIAL thanks to you guys…I can’t wait to look back and say that this day was the day it all began!
But it wasn’t about us…it was about Gabe and Brad! They we so fun to work with, so laid back, and very crazy! I knew immediately, from their engagement session (trampoline, foot races…etc!), that they would have an awesome wedding day. I am so glad that I got to be a part of that. It was also very evident that these two are really loved by all the people around them. So, for their guests (many of them from out of town), they wanted to give them a true “Chicago” experience. There was Lou Malnati’s pizza, Garrett’s popcorn (the Chicago mix, of course), and Portillo’s chocolate cake! Now that’s my kind of reception! Anyways, enjoy the look at this wonderful day, and this beautiful couple!
