It's been a while since we've had the opportunity to work at Testa Vineyards, so when Melanie followed my lead & chose it as the 'Getting Ready' location? I was thrilled! And - they brought all of their friends & family to share the home with them for the Weekend!! I always think that's the perfect way to do it - - who can get enough love + memories in just one day?! Make it a Weekend!
Hair & Make-up just arrived...! I'll keep playing!
The flowers just blew me away! GORGEOUS!
...just checking in...
 Time to get that amazing dress on!
Grandmas' pearls...
Okay, ladies - let's take a few photos before the boys all arrive!
 These BOUQUETS!!!
When we discussed her color palette - I could have never imagined THIS!
 Boys...being boys...
They're here! They're here!
 I'm always so excited for this moment!
Awww - perfection...
 Okay! Let's PLAY & explore - see what we come up with!!
 Back home, it's time to get these two Married!!
 All the flowers just came out! O-M-G! GORGEOUS!
You, guys!! I'm so smiling...!
 Okay - we're done - the night is YOURS!!
 Hey! An, assistant! SWEET!
 Heart cactus?! Who planned that!?
 She's from Michigan...he's from NorCal...now, they call Chicago home!
