When a stunning park setting and an adorable bride and groom come together for a couple of “I do’s,” it’s a beautiful, beautiful thing.  The kind of affair, in fact, that you only see in fairytales… or those uber-romantic movies.  So to say that we were just a tad bit excited to dive into every last gorgeous detail of this stunning day captured by Kina Wicks is, well… one serious understatement.  And the gallery of drop-dead gorgeous images?  Beyond breathtaking.  Join me there for so much more.

From Kina Wicks Photography… Kelly and John had a day that was flawless. They got ready on different floors of John’s parents’ home, and the excitement was palpable. You can see the excitement in the cool photo of the bridal party on different floors of the house! It was taken before the bride and groom had seen each other yet and was such a fun idea they had. Kelly & John have such a nice mixture of being best friends and truly obviously still crushing on one another! I loved the little ways that they show love and respect to one another. When they exchanged love notes to each other during their first look, they were generous enough to share the words with me ahead of time… my favorite quote was one of John’s… “A lifetime together lies shortly ahead.” I know he means it. Their day reflected their beautiful, quiet, mature relationship at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, IL. The setting along with the people who surrounded them gave them a wedding they will always cherish.
