When I first met Mimosa and Will for their consultation, it was instant chemistry. Mimosa is like the sister I never had. Over time, we became such great friends and I can literally spend forever on the phone with her and we won’t run out of things to say. Working with Mimosa from day one has been so much fun. From planning their e-session earlier this year to planning their wedding a few weeks ago. I seriously love these two to pieces!!!! Talk about finding a lifelong friend. I definitely found it in these two.
I have to warn you, this is a REEEEALLY long blog post with lots and LOTS of pictures. You see, when I shot Mimosa and Will’s wedding, I was 8 months preggers. And because I was that far along, I had two photographers and one assistant handy. I normally would have one photographer and one assistant but brought one more photographer on board just in case. Thanks Jimmy, Ray, and William for everything!!!
Mimosa is the epitome of the word “blushing bride”. She was beaming from ear to ear the entire day. I’m so surprised she didn’t mentioned anything about her cheeks hurting. Mine does just looking at her. Lol!!
Their tender first look…
We then took off to Hotel Palomar downtown Chicago for their portrait session before heading to the church for the ceremony.
Now I’ve gotten my wedding party in the past to form a human pyramid before but this one here is a REAL pyramid. Mimosa actually climbed to the very top! I was seriously in tears.
Yes, I brought props with me this time. Wanted to try something different. Hehe.

Thank you Mimosa and Will. Thanks for being such an amazing client but most of all, thank you both for your friendship. Looking forward to many more years of this! Hope everything works out well with your honeymoon planning for this month. Can’t wait to hear about your Italian honeymoon!!!
