Erica and Jon are both scientists, and after meeting in the lab it was obvious they had strong chemistry. Their summer wedding was filled with gorgeous and elegant details - including these lovely sparkly heels and an epic chemical reaction in lieu of a unity candle - but above all else their love for one another was the main focus of this unforgettable day.
After Erica got ready with her mom, she went upstairs to see her groom for the first time in her wedding dress. First looks are always magical moments, but this one was particularly memorable. Erica quietly floated up behind Jon, and they were both overcome when they laid eyes on one another.
Erica and her bridesmaids looked like goddesses in their draped gowns and loose updos, I loved this bright blue color.
We took the wedding party to a local park with an amazing view of the city, I loved using this dramatic metal sculpture to frame their photos.
When we arrived at The Odyssey Country Club in Tinley Park, Erica and Jon's sweet puppy was waiting in his adorable doggy tux. Is their anything cuter than a dog ring bearer?!? The ceremony was led by a close friend, who read his notes from a biology textbook before overseeing the "unity reaction." Pure nerdy awesomeness.
During the cocktail hour the guests were serenaded by a wonderful group of mariachis before being treated to a delicious dinner and heartfelt toasts. It was such a beautiful and memorable night, the perfect celebration for this couple with true chemistry.
