This Wedding goes on record for being the longest post and the longest it has ever taken me to edit! Teresa and Cris were married in Chicago, and were surrounded in utter love by family and friends. They had so much love, it was impossible not to feel it. I honestly felt as if I was apart of the family, instantly.
I don’t even know where to start in how to describe this day. There were surprises around EVERY corner the whole day! This wedding was filled with happiness, beauty, warmth, hearts full of love, heart ache and perfection! So, I will let you see for yourself as you watch their day unfold through photos. Enjoy!

This salon, Mario Tricoci, is Chicago’s best salon in town! It is incredible in here…the ambiance was so soothing and beautiful, and all the artists were genius!

Teresa’s parents! LOVE THEM!These two came out ready to dance!!
And the toasts begin!!In order to get Cris and Teresa to kiss, a wedding tradition during the meal, they had everyone sing a song that had the word “Love” in it!! The guys on the left spelled out the word LOVE with their bodies!
Here is where the water works start…Cris’s brother (best man) had a huge secret he had kept in for who knows how long…Before their Dad passed away, he recorded himself with an extremely special video of him congratulating Cris and Teresa. He told them how much he loved them both! NO one knew this was even recorded beforehand…
THE ENTIRE ROOM was filled with tears…even Will and I
Son and Mother dance
Bride and Groom first dance……
AND BAM! ANOTHER SURPRISE! They both busted out in a killer choreographed dance! It was insane..
Cris on his head
Then, a bunch of dancers came out and did another awesome choreographed dance!! Cris’s Grandmother…probably my most favorite person in the whole world. I want her in my pocket. After the reception..I just sat and talked with her for an hour. I love her!
