These two lovebirds have made their nest in Chicago! And, after many phone calls and emails back and forth over the months, it was so nice to finally meet Sarah & Edmund in person!
Beautiful bride-to-be Sarah grew up spending summers with her family at their home on the grounds of the Chautauqua Institution. So when she found out that she could have her wedding on these same grounds, well... it was a done deal!
Not only is the Chautauqua Institution a gorgeous campus and it clearly holds a very special place in this couple's heart, but it also works as a perfect gathering place for their families coming from all over the east coast and mid-west.
They opted to shoot their engagement session here as well since they were planning to spend Memorial Day weekend with family at their home on the grounds. It was so much fun exploring this picture-perfect community, meeting Sarah's family and Bella, their 5 year old golden retriever, and hearing all of Sarah's stories about spending summers in Chautauqua (I'm still so jealous!).
I can't wait for their September wedding and to see this place filled with colorful trees! Only 4 months to go til "I do" for Sarah & Edmund!!
