Chicago Wedding Photography: Emily and Aron

Emily and Aron didn’t let a thunderous evening spoil their wedding night on a boat, the Chicago’s Leading Lady, in the Chicago River.   Surrounded by family and friends, they handled the weather changes with ease and with a lot of laughter.   Congratulations, you two!   I loved documenting your big day!

A blast from (my) past…
