When your bride has a huge smile on her face when you show up at her hotel door.... you know it is going to be a good day.
When your bride, maid of honor and close friend of the bride are cracking jokes about "lady parts".... you know it is going to be a good day.
When your groom is near tears when he sees his bride for the first time.... you know if is going to be a good day.
When your bridal party STILL wants to take shots at Milton Lee Olive Park and around Logan Square even though it is 22F outside.... you know it is going to be a good day.
When your wedding guests get to consume awesome beer, tour the brewery and are excited to get their groove on... you know if is going to be a good day.
Zel and Kris' wedding was more than "good". From the nephews photo-bombing the family portraits, to the ceremony that hilariously told Zel and Kris' love story that began in middle school to some of the incredible dance moves displayed by several guests, I caught myself smiling and laughing behind the camera quite a bit.
There were many adorable details and traditions incorporated into the night. Proudly displayed on an old clipboard from middle school with "Zel + Kris" drawn on with permanent marker was one of many special post cards from Kris to Zel. The Breaking of the glass during the ceremony and the Hora, followed by the Chair Dance, expertly executed without anyone falling off a chair or hitting their heads on some of the low hanging lights. A high school reunion photo -- Dundee Crown -- Holla! And a "Do Not Disturb" door tag for those that were up partying late at Zel and Kris' awesome wedding.
I am so happy for these two and their families. Congrats!!!
