april & jr
Here’s another awesome referral from the fabulous Abby & Jan! Thanks guys!
April & JR have attended many weddings and have participated as a bridesmaid and a groomsman to many of their friends’ weddings as well for the past couple of years. Their vision for their own wedding was to have a different ‘feel’ for the Reception part of the day. When I had met with them in the beginning of the year, they excitedly shared their vision of what it would be like at the W Hotel Lake Shore. I shared in their excitement and tried to visualize what they were describing, but nothing prepared me for what I saw when I walked in at the top floor of the W Hotel Lake Shore. BTW, that’s April up on top on my blog banner!
Beautiful, elegant and exquisite!
We started out the day at April & JR’s home
I had to shoot April shooting with her brand new camera that she received from JR as a wedding present! Now that’s my kind of present!
