Ashley’s mother quietly gathered her daughter’s dress and brought it into the bedroom of the high-rise hotel suite at Kimpton Hotel Palomor in Chicago. As she helped unwrap her daughter’s gown and hang it up on the beautiful wooden hanger that was custom-made in Holland, everyone’s eyes darted over in awe. Today was the day everyone in the room had been waiting for.

After a decade of courting one another, Ashley and Shaun just made sense to everyone around them. Their love was perfect, and served as a source of inspiration to those closest to them.

Ashley + Shaun’s Chicago wedding at Hotel Palomar

Though the morning threatened rain, we were gifted with beautiful clouds and lighting for all their portraits. Despite the stormy-weather, the day flowed so effortlessly, and everyone was simply thrilled to be gathered together again from all around the country for such a special occasion.

I could not be more thankful to be invited into this couple’s heart and to share their special day with those closest to them. Their day was spent sharing their devotion to each other, their laughter and their memories.
