Now that wedding season is officially done, I can catch up on blogging! I’ve already shared their engagement session, and I’ve already posted a bunch on social media from Jackie & Trent’s Meadows at Millennium Park summer wedding but oh man. I can not say enough about this incredible couple and their beautiful day! So sweet and caring, this entire day was truly a celebration of love! Dark clouds threatened to crash the party, but they held off for most of the day, creating some gorgeous soft lighting!
The Grant Pavilion was the perfect setting for their ceremony, overlooking a gorgeous sun-filled natural area! It was full of happy tears and laughter and led the way into an amazing party downtown at the B.O.B.! Couples like this one is exactly why I love what I do!
Jackie and all of her girls had these adorable matching pajamas to get ready in!
Trent gave his bride a wooden Michigan cut out, with a sweet handwritten note that FILLED the backside!
Makeup by Jamie helped give Jackie her stunning bridal glow!
I wish I had a video of this part…I told the guys to all walk casually towards me, and they ALL turned out a different hilarious dance!
They both had huge smiles all day!
Trent could barely hold it together when he saw Jackie coming down the aisle!
I always love the super excited “we did it!” moment when they’re pronounced husband and wife!
Bonus points, their families were just as sweet as the bride and groom!
AND so was the wedding party!
Those dark clouds started rolling in but somehow we managed to dodge all the rain drops!
One of the reasons that the couple chose their venue was for the beautiful fields surrounding the area, so of course we had to highlight that in their formals!
We had a few minutes downtown before we headed into the reception!
But fiiiirst they went on a carriage ride!
The B.O.B. was filled with gorgeous twinkling lights for their first dance!
In keeping with how utterly precious the newlyweds are, instead of a garter toss, they opted for a feet-washing ceremony!
The way she’s looking at her new husband just makes me melt!
One of those “hold on and never let go” kind of hugs <3
I feel so blessed to have been a part of this incredible couple’s Meadows at Millennium Park summer wedding!
