Anyone that knows me knows one thing: I am obsessed with libraries.  I mean, one room after another filled with a plethora of never-ending knowledge + history housed in a beautiful building?  It’s magical. And since I also happen to have a slight obsession with weddings (read: a huge obsession), a wedding held in a library is basically my favorite thing (ever).  And this gorgeous day captured perfectly by Evan Hunt Photo?  It’s amazing… with a breathtaking backdrop (but of course), lush florals from Parrott Party Productions and two people in l.o.v.e.  See it all in the full gallery.

From Evan Hunt PhotoKaleigh and Bill’s wedding day represents the very reason why we love photographing love stories. Their story is undeniably strong and evident in their kindness, love for each other, and faith in God. Their wedding reflected this with simplicity, elegance, and an ease to the day that only comes with confidence with a couple who is truly in love. We can’t thank them enough for allowing us to capture their story and we wish them the best for their future!

From the Bride… After asking my Father for permission over a cigar in Florida, William proposed to me on December 10th, 2011 in a romantic night helicopter ride over the city of Chicago. As we flew over the city that watched our relationship grow; under the heavens that will guide our life together, he was ready to ask my hand in marriage. A suburban boy and a Chicago girl. Two very different paths crossed and resulted in the most amazing years of our lives.
