Jenn and Chris tied the not mid-November at Hoosier Grove Barn in Streamwood. The day started out at Jenn's house, and when I got there, all of Jenn's closest friends were surrounding her at the kitchen table, laughing. I could immediately tell that this would be a GREAT day just from the atmosphere of walking into a room filled with so much laughter!
As the bridal party continued to get ready, I got to meet Jenn's adorable pup - Laurel - who was the center of attention, with her cute lil bowtie! She was making her rounds to everyone, tail wagging the entire time. Once she had made her rounds, she took a little nap in the living room - probably so she could still be in the middle of all the excitement!
We finished getting ready, and everyone piled into the limo, and went over to the venue, where Jenn and Chris shared their First Look in front of the school house. Jenn was such a trouper - Standing outside in 30-degree weather to get bridal portraits, family portraits, and their couple portraits done, so that way the rest of the day they could enjoy themselves, and mingle with their guests!
After an intimate ceremony, the room was soon flipped by Hoosier's amazing staff, and dinner was served, while Bridgerton-like music played in the background - coming from Felix and Fingers - a dueling piano group. If I was blown away by just the thought of a dueling piano duo at a wedding, that's nothing compared to the reception, where they cranked out all of your classic 90's hits - Backstreet Boys, to Fall Out Boy, to Abba!
By the end of the night, Jenn and Chris were surrounded by the people they love most, celebrating this next chapter as they take the step into being a married couple.
Jenn and Chris, thank you SO Much for allowing me into this special moment in time - I wish you nothing but the best as you create your lives together.
