Esley and Tom are having their big wedding bash in just a few days, but decided to get the paperwork taken care of beforehand. I tagged along with them as they headed into the government building to make it legal.
Esley’s mother, father and brother were there, too, serving as witnesses.
Esley even had a special bouquet made for the day.
Tom moved to Chicago from the UK, and Esley was wearing these earrings in his honor.
We had a short wait…
…and then Tom and Esley were in front of the judge.
They exchanged vows and rings…
…and then sealed the deal with a kiss.
Esley, Tom and I then set out for a celebratory photo session.
This was a great warm-up for their wedding celebration, which is only days away.
I was getting excited hearing about all the details planned for the party.
Their celebration will be held at the Ravenswood Event Center here in the city. It’s one of my favorite places to shoot!
I’ll see you very soon, Esley and Tom! Congratulations on your marriage!
