Chicago Wedding Photographer: Melissa Marie Photography: The Grove Country Club: BRANDON + CATIE

There couldn’t have been a bigger temperature difference than what Brandon & Catie had for their engagement photos to their wedding day. For their engagement session, it was like the apocalypse happened in Chicago. Literally. And I mean literally, not a single person was at the most iconic places in Chicago it was that cold. My camera froze. Literally. I took the batteries out, and the camera still didn’t turn off, and the last photo on the screen didn’t go away for 3 days! I think that’s how long it took for our limbs to thaw too. But these two, stuck it out! And not only that, but smiled the whole way through. Then fast forward to their wedding day…It was toasty! Even for a couple living in California, there was debate as to whether to take photos outside it was that hot. But I’m so glad we did! (Again, troopers!) Yes, it was hot. But absolutely beautiful! And even more than that, I love having couples get some time on their wedding day for it to just be them. The rest of the day, they’ll be wonderfully surrounded by the most important people in their life. But for just a bit…Having it be just the bride and groom. Just husband and wife…Taking a moment to take it in on their wedding day. No sweatin’ (yes, pun intended) that decision! So happy for you guys!
