Marrying your high school sweet heart: This is the stuff that movies are made of and we’re getting to see it play out right before our eyes thanks to Ashley Biess Photography. This happy pair celebrated in style with a wedding day that combined power house purple with the fit and flare of modern lines and fresh linens by BB Chair Covers. I adore how every image in the gallery captures the twinkle in this happy couple’s eyes – swoon!
And you must simply watch this wedding film by Hannah Goering Productions, which also features some of Ashley Biess’s photographs. I almost couldn’t believe my eyes when I learned that this is Hannah’s first wedding video ever, and I am floored by how beautiful and touching it is!
From Ashley Biess Photography… You can tell that high school sweethearts, Kamile and Adam, have been together for over seven years. Their love for each other is so obvious by seeing the way they look, laugh and smile and each other. Even though their wedding fell on a rainy spring day, the couple didn’t let that stop the party. Kamile looked stunning in her floral-inspired Allure Couture gown, and Adam looked suave in his Express suit. The black and purple color scheme popped perfectly against the greenery of the Morton Arboretum as the couple and their wedding party had fun taking photos in the misty weather. Kamile and Adam celebrated their nuptials with friends and family at the Lithuanian World Center in Lemont. The wedding decor was garden-inspired, perfect for any spring wedding. Kamile, a teacher, and Adam, a pharmacist, served guests his and her signature cocktails: the “Teacher’s Pet” and “Rx.” In honor of Kamile’s heritage, they served guests traditional Lithuanian food for both dinner and dessert, and they even had Lithuanian treats available at their candy bar. After dinner, the party got started. Kamile changed into her sparkly purple TOMS and joined their friends and family on the dance floor. Everyone had a great time and danced all night long.
