Krista and Chris: A Lovely Queens Wedding

Krista and Chris had a wonderful celebration on a warm(ish) winter day. There was a bit of rain here and there, but it held off enough for a few outdoor portraits.

Central Park Wedding of Catherine and Sara

Family and friends traveled from around the globe to witness and support Catherine and Sara on this beautiful day.

We met at the Imagine mosaic in Central Park. Traveling from the south, they’re imagining a time when their marriage will be recognized by ALL states. We’re getting there!

There were cotton farmers in their family, so a bit of cotton seemed appropriate for the bouquets

They chose the beautiful Gapstow Bridge in Central Park as their backdrop

A lovely intimate ceremony, officiated by the amazing Valerie Coleman.

Excellent music by Darius Kaufmann on bagpipe and Irish flute

After the ceremony we went to a few iconic locations in Chicago for portraits. The Music Box Theatre was the location of one of their first dates, and everyone loves the building of Superdawg’s!

Sarah and Matt met at a tango class, so they brought in two dancers for a performance and a group lesson. Lots of fun!
