Chad and Brittany's Rustic Chic Chicago Wedding by Meredith Washburn

Photographing Chad and Brittany's wedding was so much fun. I traveled from St. Louis to Elgin, Illinois where the two were married at the cutest wedding venue, the Haight. Brittany's little sister is one of my best friends, so it was extra special getting to see Brittany all dressed up as a bride and share in such a memorable day with her and her family. I seriously don't think I saw her smile leave her face the entire day, it was so sweet. Brittany lights up anytime Chad is around...he is the perfect match for her. I actually met Chad for the first time on the day of the wedding. His family and friends were so kind and helpful the entire day, and I heard so many wonderful things said about Chad; a testament to the person that he is and that his parents raised him to be. I'm so glad Brittany found someone so special that lights up her world. Thanks for having me as your photographer, Chad and Brittany <3! What a wonderful day.
