Yesterday was a beautiful day for a wedding! Congratulations Alyson & Eric!

We arrived at the brides house to the pure chaos of 11 women all getting ready at the same time.  Alyson, however, remained calm and relaxed. At least that's how she appeared. This is one of my favorite pictures of her. Just gorgeous.

I LOVE her head piece. Very unique.

Talk about unique-check out the mother of the brides flowers!

The church was only a 5 minute drive from where Alyson's childhood home in South Boston.

After the ceremony, it was a quick ride on the trolly to Sully's for a hot dog.

This is one of the biggest wedding parties I've ever seen-there were 9 bridesmaids and 9 groomsmen!

What I love most about the image below is the position of the woman's feet, fourth in from the right. These girls were so much fun to photograph! Did you notice the 5 inch heels?!!!

The next image is one that I'm most excited about – I just can't decide if I like it better in black and white or color. What do you think?

Ok, this picture needs some explaining. This is Alyson's doll from her childhood. Her mother always said she would carry that doll to her wedding one day-well . . .

She had a blast and got tons of attention!

It was a night filled with dancing-the night flew by!

We are back from our road trip to Chicago. I fell in love with the city! Wouldn't it be great to have a second studio there? I think so-who's with me?

Below is not from my hotel room-I got up early and went out by myself to get a few shots of the city. It is so clean and the people are incredibly friendly.

One night we camped at the Indiana Dunes State Park-on Lake Michigan. Just an hour outside Chicago.

 Next year we are going to try to make it out to Yellowstone National Park. I will need to keep at least a month free for that.
