“What we’d had and what we would have in our relationship is not perfect and will never be. But I want to marry you because I know that I am ready to love you every single day for the rest of our lives. Even when it is difficult. Even when we are fighting. Even if I don’t have a reason to. And even if it means listening to you talk about dodgeball all day.”
And talk dodgeball they did… and played it too!
Fun wedding. Beautiful couple. Wondrous Chicago. Enjoy it all (and more) in Mike and Charity’s Same Day Edit video.
Some weddings have that relaxed vibe going — the soon-to-weds have the carefree attitude, the guests are friendly and everybody is just chillin’ in Windy City. We felt that way with Erick and Michelle — from the prenup shoot all the way to the wedding, they were just loose and having the time of their lives… and we loved capturing those jovial moments.
But amidst the pleasant atmosphere, there was this moment of vulnerability wherein silence, a stare towards afar and a tear drop just touched our hearts. Honest. Sentimental. Moving.
And this is why we shoot weddings.
There’s just too many takeaways in Justin and Janice’s wedding. There’s the beautiful city of Chicago. There’s poignant moment between the soon-to-weds and their respective parents during the preps. There’s the vows — a lot of romance and drama, a dash of humor and a pinch of an American speaking in Tagalog.
But the biggest takeaway is this — Justin and Janice are beautiful people inside and out. We saw it. We felt it — as if we were family. That would stick with us.
