I met Jackie in the warm tropical climate of Hawaii, when we were both really young and lived on Oahu as our Dad’s were both physicians in the military. She was closer in age to my younger sister Allie, so we didn’t play as often together, but I always loved her and her family. So, when she reached out about the possibility of photographing her wedding, I was elated!
Even though she and Michael live in the Chicago area, they were in Seattle visiting family, so we were able to do their engagement session in the spring! It was great to have the chance to meet Michael, and wander around the streets of downtown Seattle with them as we took their photos.
Their ceremony and reception were both held at a darling venue, Heritage Prairie Farm about an hour outside of Chicago — it provided the perfect environment for both their ceremony and reception. My sister Allie was able to fly out to assist me, which added even more to the experience!
Enjoy the images of their beautiful day!
