Holly + Chris I Wedding (Winnetka Community House Wedding Photographer)


Holly and Chris are the age old tale of opposites attract – at least when it comes to hockey. As Holly’s dad reminisced, he remembered when Holly called home telling him she had met a great guy – “and dad, he’s a hockey fan!” – her dad was thrilled, thinking this guy would be able to enjoy the Blackhawks with the rest of the family. Until Holly dropped the bomb; sure, Chris is a hockey fan, but a Red Wings hockey fan. One would think that for two die hard sports teams fans that this relationship would’ve never taken off – but as the night wore on and family and friends described Chris and Holly’s relationship, it was easy to see how they’ve always just worked together, and well. Holly compliments Chris’ outgoing personality with her calm presence, and she loves to plan and be organized and uses this gift as a way of serving Chris. Chris keeps Holly entertained and keeps life fun and upbeat, and has a candid ability to make her laugh – constantly. It was such an honor to be a part of this wedding, and I hope you enjoy the pictures, we’re so excited to share them!

The 1st look! Such an amazing moment

watching the guests arrive for the ceremony…

I love the two below, Holly and her dad trying not to cry right before they walk down the aisle…

And the night ended with lots of dancing – and seriously, these people wanted to dance – it was awesome :)

Holly and Chris, thank you so much for having us capture your day, we were blessed to be a part of it!

    Looking at these pictures is so surreal. I cannot believe what a wonderful day this way. It will go down in history as one of the happiest days of my life. So blassed to have such a wonderful friend family. I feel like we all got married. Thank you, Katie, for capturing this beautiful day!
