Monica + Alex Just the Dress Session // Doctor's Park // Fox Point, Wisconsin
Monica and I met in grade school. Throughout our 20+ year friendship we have traveled together, lived together and made endless fun memories! When Monica first told me met Alex, I knew he was a catch. He was funny, witty and just the perfect guy for Monica. We were so thrilled when Monica and Alex invited us to their Pennsylvania wedding this past summer.
Their wedding was straight out of a fairytale! It took place at the beautiful Holly Hedge Estate in the Pennsylvania country side. There was old European architecture, lush gardens, and charm that gave it the French chateau vibe. Simply stunning! Just as stunning as Monica's coutureYolan Cris wedding dress!
I couldn't be happier when Monica came back to Chicago and told me she wanted to wear her dress one more time and "possibly" climb into a tree for one photo. Yes! Yes! Yes! That's a wedding photographers dream! A bride who is adventurous and doesn't mind if her dress gets a little dirty. So I was more than delighted and eager to photograph her and her incredibly dress.
On a summer afternoon her and Alex drove up from Chicago to take some after the wedding photos at Doctor's Park in Fox Point. Monica got to wear her dress one more time. And we managed to sneak Alex into some of the photos for a romantic forest shoot that showcased Monica's dress. Might I add, Monica and Alex looked completely and utterly in love! I am so happy for our friendship and wish nothing but the best for Monica and Alex as they embark on a new adventure as husband and wife!
Gotta love when Eva can squeeze into some photos! When Eva saw Monica putting on her wedding dress, she exclaimed "wow, princess!" Then proceeded to tell us that she also wanted to look like a princess. Ha! So naturally we dressed her in a long dress and took some photos of the two princesses together. :)
