springtime intimate wedding at Cantigny Gardens | Wheaton, IL

It couldn't have been a more perfect May day for Kristy + Russ to wed. Cantigny Park was a sweet backdrop for the private family ceremony, which included Russ' children. Rosebuds (my favorite tree!) were in full bloom and the day warmed up just enough. We found a private little alley for their first look and snuck into the bushes for some intimate photos. 

One of the special moments of the day was seeing both Russ and Kristy's grandparents sitting in four white chairs for the ceremony. Those marriages represented 66 and 67 years of marriage...what a beautiful legacy for this couple!

Simple, classic, beautiful. A sweet reminder that you you don't need much to marry your best friend.
