Wedding: Laura & Wallace

July 27, 2013



Where to begin with Laura & Wallace…

I’ve known Laura for over 15 years, having met her on our first day at Illinois Wesleyan University back in 1997 as we both got started as music majors. Laura and I became fast friends, due in part to a tight-knit circle of roommates, friends, and fellow musicians. Sitting next to each other in Wind Ensemble over the next few years only helped to reinforce that bond, and since IWU we’ve shared plenty of vacations, dinners, and drinks!

When Laura first introduced me to Wallace, I knew he was special, and I saw that Laura knew it, too. His smile lights up the room, and from the very beginning Wallace has been the perfect complement to Laura. So when Laura & Wally got engaged last year, it’s a huge understatement to say that I was excited for them. And when they asked me to be their wedding photographer — over dinner at a Cuban BYOB in Chicago, naturally — I was over the moon!

On July 5, 2013, Laura & Wallace were married in a beautiful ceremony at Silver Lake Country Club in Orland Park, IL, surrounded by family and friends. The day was absolutely perfect, and so is this couple — I mean, look at these two!!!

Congratulations to you both, Laura & Wally, and thank you again for letting me capture your special day!
