Lauren & Tom had a day, what a day!!! You won’t be able to tell from most of the pictures how just about everything that could go wrong, did…except the important part…they were there to get married and that part was perfect! Lauren danced when she could have been crying that her dream of an outdoor wedding rolled away as the black clouds rolled in. It was an emotional day as Lauren’s dad passed away just days before the wedding and there were many moments were his presence was missed. Among other things, the bus broke down and she had no way to get to the wedding so these resourceful girls did what anyone in Chicago would do when they need to get somewhere, got some cabs! Not exactly the dream she envisioned, but a dream come true none the less. Needless to say, I gave this wonderful couple some extra blog love and facebook love to show them how amazing they were throughout all of the ups and downs that is a wedding!

Did I mention Lauren has a twin and rabbits!! These girls love their rabbits which is a theme you will see in many of the details. This is probably my fav shoe shot ever. Not intending to have the rabbit come out when I put the shoe down, but glad I was ready!
bridesmaid’s duty! haha
her little bunny watching as she gets ready
Just imagine putting your dress on and then seeing this in the sky!
When the bus breaks down and you have to wait for something else…what else is there to do but dance to Justin Beiber!
After they waiting for 20 mins they gave up, taxi time!!!
Finally at the venue and just about had enough…one moment to collect herself and getting ready to see Tom!
Bussels and blow driers…these girls were quite the team of calmness and love!
Lauren couldn’t wait for an I DO for a hug and kiss from Tom, that was all she needed to make it all ok!
I love these little stolen moments
I love this shot Aaron got from the inside of the venue!
An emotional moment as Tom remembers Lauren’s dad
