Matt and Cece are two of the best. They planned their wedding with great intentionality toward meaningful details, honoring their loved ones, and a deep value for fun. If there's any memories we keep of Cece on her wedding day, it's of her laughing while wiping away tears when she opened her gift from Matt, greeted her dad for the first time in her bridal gown, and witnessed her maid of honor's heartfelt speech. Matt and Cece had a relaxed wedding day schedule that allowed for them to recreate one of their favorite usual dates to their local Dairy Queen. After that we moved on to a downtown photo-shoot with the whole bridal party and even sweet-talked a CTA driver into letting us use his bus for a few shots before moving on to a fun-filled reception--glow sticks included--at Kitchen Chicago.

Bethany and I were so honored to be able to be part of this celebration. So many thanks to you both, Matt and Cece, for choosing us to capture your perfect day.
