Marisa and John’s Wedding at the McDonald’s Hyatt Lodge in Oakbrook, Illinois. I stared at the sign. “Kennedy Wedding. Grassy Knoll.” It had to be some kind of joke. I asked John if it was a joke. “No,” he said. “And until I mentioned it, they didn’t even see the irony in it. It’s really called the grassy knoll.” And for the day it became a running gag. “Thankfully nothing bad happened at the Grassy Knoll at the Kennedy wedding,” said John to his laughing guests. We knew this couple was for us after reading their huge list of “nerdy” things to be injected lovingly into their wedding, from the Star Wars music during their ceremony or the Star Wars cake topper. But what really let us know that this couple was right for our photography, was their desire to have every little moment captured at their wedding, that those moments were so much more important than the posed stuff. And that’s what made us so excited to work with them.
Marisa and John. Thanks for loving what we love, for being so easy to work with and for being your wonderful selves all day long. We loved working with the both of you and we hope to see you again! Special thanks to Toast and Jam for being amazing as always. 🙂
