Sammie & Mike | Chicago Film Wedding at the Lincolnshire Marriot


August 7, 2018

As we neared the bridal suite at the Lincolnshire Marriot where Sammie and her girls were getting ready, I hear music and lots of laughter. That laughter pretty much didn’t stop the rest of the day. Their friends and family were so excited to see these high school sweethearts tie the knot, that there were non stop smiles all day, even on such a hot July Saturday.

Sammie and Mike opted not to do a first look, so it was so fun to see Mike’s reaction as Sammie came down the aisle with her mom and dad. Sammie’s sister and Mike’s brother became ordained so they could perform the ceremony together, and the laughter continued as Sammie grabbed a selfie stick for a ceremony selfie after their first kiss.

Toast and Jam kept their friends and family dancing all night, and it was so great getting to work with Daniel D Video and Little Shop on the Prairie again! From tearful toasts, to DQ Dilly Bars as a surprise late night snack, Sammie and Mike had such a special day!

Mike and Sammie, I wish you both the very best! Thank you so much for choosing me to capture your day!
