Real Wedding + Liz & Ted

The day began with the sound of gunshots, ceramic shattering in midair as consequence of bullets, and women prepping their finest looks in the childhood home of the bride. Liz and Ted’s wedding centered around family and tradition. The first look and photos were all done within their house to capture the values in which they instill within themselves, which carried over throughout the day.

From the bride…

I am a surgical fellow in Chicago, and didn’t have a schedule that allowed for more than a couple of trips home during the planning process. Mom, with the help of my sister, handled almost all of the day-to-day planning and details.
