Lisa + Susan | Monastero’s Wedding in Chicago, Illinois

I absolutely love photographing a same sex wedding!! There’s two of everything I love photographing – brides, bouquets, sparkly rings. But I especially love the support, emotion, and LOVE that surrounds same sex couples.

Lisa and Susan are some of the sweetest and most genuine people I have met. These two definitely made an impression on me in the short time I’ve known them. The entire day was packed full of emotions, sweet moments, and love.

They were married on a beautiful August day at Monastero’s in Chicago, Illinois. After a quick first look, we headed to Legion Park before the ceremony for some quick pictures outside then headed back to the Botticelli room at Monastero’s for the ceremony. This Sicilian restaurant is a unique and gorgeous setting for a wedding!

Here are some of my favorites from their wedding.
