How do you even start writing a blog post about 2 people that you love and adore more than words can express?? Chris has been one of my best friends and constant companions since we were 11 years old. Monica met Chris met in college, and from the moment I met her I’ve been on team Monica :) She is the perfect match for him, and is so sweet, down to earth, and loving. These two cuties were married up in Michigan this past September, and since I couldn’t be there because of work we decided to do our own post wedding portrait session with their sweet dog Matilda (side note: when they got Matilda as a puppy and introduced her, I remember thinking ‘what a cute name!’ – and I was newly pregnant with our 3rd baby. Later on around the 7th month of pregnancy, my husband and I were discussing names and I kept coming back to the name Matilda but couldn’t remember where I heard it from. We decided to name our little girl Matilda, and it wasn’t until this past summer that I realized that I had named my child after MY BEST FRIEND’S DOG hahahahaha!!!!).
Ok, back to this adorable session :)
We decided to head over to Hurley Gardens in Wheaton since it’s quiet, secluded, beautiful, and dog-friendly. We had so much fun, especially because Monica is a dancer and we were able to get some awesome dancer-ish pictures :)
So seriously, I could just squish these two and pinch their cheeks for days I love them so much!! Enjoy!!!!
