I know I've said it before, but really one of the absolute best things about this job is meeting these amazing couples - clients who become friends as they open up and share the most unforgettable moments of their lives. Kim and John are two of the most genuine and relatable people I have ever met, and looking back through their wedding photos gives me the urge to call them up for a laugh over drinks. To be honest, when I first met John I was a little intimidated - he was not totally feeling the idea of taking their engagement photos - but by the end of that session we were all in tears laughing after bonding over a shared love of the Chicago Cubs. We kept in touch over the coming months and I ran into John at the Cubs Convention, where he was incredibly generous with my oldest son (who is also named John!) I couldn't wait to celebrate Kimmie and John's wedding, and leading up to that spring day it became clear to me just how perfect they are for one another. Throughout every moment of their wedding at Makray Memorial Golf Club they were in sync, checking in one each other, keeping each other laughing and showing love any chance they had. Kim and John are soulmates in every sense of the word, and we loved being on hand to witness the beginning of their married lives together.
Congratulations, Kim and John, we love you and wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
