Right around this same time last March, Annie and Jason contacted me about photographing their wedding, even prior to deciding on which venue they wanted to have their ceremony and reception at! We have had the pleasure of photographing some of Annie’s friend and family’s weddings, and we have also photographed a Wedding Networking event at her lovely salon in the South Side (check out Destefino Beauty Bar- a full service beauty bar that specializes in the most on-trend hair, makeup, nail, skin, etc. treatments. It was great to see this lovely team of ladies again!)
We were over-the-moon thrilled to be a part of Annie and Jason’s wedding day- not only to see so many familiar faces, but also because Annie and Jason are such a fun, relaxed, and easy-to-love couple. Annie and Jason met through a mutual friends (one of their bridesmaids/groomsmen, actually!) Somehow, good friends just know when they see a good match, and in this instance, a forever match.
Annie and Jason picked the perfect day to get married- Jason’s family is Irish, so it was completely fitting to have the wedding on St. Patrick’s Day. Their wedding colors were white, gold, and of course, a touch of glittering green at the reception. From the green lit-up ice bar, to the shimmering gold wedding shoes and bridesmaids’ dresses, this cocktail-style wedding was nothing short of phenomenal. Take a look at the story of Annie and Jason’s wedding day!
