It was not only a pleasure but an honor to photograph the wedding of one of the top wedding planners daughter’s in Chicago. I have known Lynda Rose and her family for many years and Danielle always told me that when she gets married I would be the one photographing her wedding and she was true to her word. The couple picked a wedding in February and was ready for a cold Chicago wedding but had a day more like spring. We, of course, took advantage of our luck and went to the beach! Danielle was concerned about walking on the sand in her dress so the groom and I carried her across the sand to a safe spot, what a crazy site! The wedding was at the historic Drake ballroom in Chicago, what a beautiful setting it was for Danielle and Ben to say their vows. The wedding was so magical and I am sure the couple will remember this incredible day forever!
