Morton Arboretum Wedding Photos, Lisle Wedding Photographer / Gretchen + Nick


Gretchen and Nick fell in love on their first few dates (over craft beers of course, a mutual love for both of them!), and are seriously two of the happiest people I’ve seen together!! Nick has the BEST and BIGGEST smile when he looks at Gretchen, and it is so clear to see the amazing love these two have for each other. Their gorgeous wedding day was held at the Morton Arboretum on literally a perfect autumn day (and for the Chicago autumn we’ve had this year full of rain and craziness, that says a lot!). It was such a fun day with their families that were full of wonderful personalities, and some of the funniest and best toasts I’ve heard all year! Jason and I had a blast working with these two, Gretchen and Nick THANK YOU for making us feel like family, we are SO happy for you both!!
