Christi & Eric’s Olbrich & Overture Wedding
As much as I enjoy a huge, rockin' wedding with a guest list oozing with loved ones ready to party, I must admit that I adore a small and intimate affair once in a while. Christi and Eric had just that- a beautifully laid-back wedding with the most important VIP's in attendance. Smaller weddings allow the bride and groom so much time to be with their favorites and soak in the day! Since Christi & Eric's engagement session in Chicago, I'd been so excited for their big day. It definitely did not disappoint! Thunderstorms threatened us, but stayed away in the end. The heat challenged us but we went on anyway. And it was perfect! See for yourself!
I love a bride with three pair of shoes... Just like me on my wedding day!
Christi and Eric had a hot, sweltering day- and I had to giggle at her when she put socks on! Blister avoidance wins, for sure, but it was still funny!
These stormy looking clouds turned out to be just about the worst of the threat that day, even though we were ALL prepared for rain. By the way, my secret trick to chase off the rain? Buy a BUNCH of umbrellas! Works like a charm. 😉
The Overture's Promenade Lounge is a perfect venue for a smaller reception. So elegant!
Instead of an all-out dance party, these game-night lovers opted for a family-style evening with all their favorite games and people. How cool is that!
Christi and Eric, I am so glad that you chose me to be a part of your day. I had a ton of fun with you guys- even with the sweaty heat! Thank you again for hiring me, and I can't wait to share ALL your images with you!
