Look who it is! This pup belongs to Meghanne’s parents, and was resting comfortably in the hotel suite as her human sister made preparations to get married.
Meghanne was surrounded by her bridesmaids and family, all of whom were excited for the day to begin.
A few touch-ups to hair and make-up…
…a ‘farewell’ smooch from the pup…
…and Meghanne (seen here with her mom and dad) was ready to get married!
Eddie was all set as well. After spending the morning getting ready alongside his groomsmen, he popped out in front of the hotel to hail a cab.
A short time later, Meghanne was being escorted down the aisle by her father. It was such a happy moment!
Meghanne and Eddie took their place at the front of this gorgeous church and the wedding mass began. Enjoy this collection of images from the wedding ceremony!:
Congratulations!!! You’re officially married! Eddie was grinning ear to ear as he and his bride walked down the stairs of the church, met with cheers and applause from their guests.
Meghanne’s dad gave me a thumbs-up as he climbed into the car and headed for the reception.
I got on to the party bus with the bridal party, though, as we traveled around the city to take portraits.
First stop: the LaSalle St. Bridge. The whole crew huddled together, getting nice and cozy for this group shot.
Next stop was the beach, where Meghanne kicked off her shoes and got her toes in the sand. The timing of this shoot was perfect. The sun had just begun to set, casting soft, warm colors over the beach and the city skyline.
A perfect vanilla sky. Gorgeous!
We could have spent another hour on the beach taking pictures agains the skyline, but it was time to party!
Meghanne and Eddie made their grand entrance, beginning the celebration by sharing their first dance.
The guests sat down to a delicious dinner, and while finishing the feast, Eddie’s best man kicked off the speeches.
Meghanne’s maid of honor followed suit, delivering a loving toast in honor of the couple.
Parent dances were next, with Eddie dancing with his mother…
…and Meghanne enjoying a slow dance with her father.
Then everyone was on their feet, ready to hit the dance floor! Eddie’s nephew was especially excited to boogie down. Everyone brought their best moves as you’ll see in the following images from Meghanne and Eddie’s dance party:
What a beautiful day! Thank you for sharing it with me, Meghanne and Eddie. Congratulations on your marriage!
