Green Bay, Chicago, Wedding Photographer : Aleks and Scott's fabulous wedding!

I am not a good story teller- I pretty much suck at it. So how do I possibly convey how amazing Aleks and Scott's wedding was....? It wasn't just a wedding. It was a celebration- a celebration of family, of tradition and of LOVE. It was a day where every moment counted, every moment mattered. Every detail had a special touch. Every person was someone special. I have never experienced anything like their day before...ever.

My friend and awesome photographer, Heather, came with me to Chicago for their day. Click Here to check out her website! I have some of her images mixed in with mine, down below.

So please enjoy a peek at Aleks and Scott's wedding- a day I will not forget.

I love having two angles like that, of a fabulous setting!

The signing of the Ketubah! This is the Jewish marriage contract that will hang in their home for the rest of their lives. It was so beautiful, and so them!

The Chuppah!- (Aleks explained the significance of this to me) The Chuppah represents the couples first home as a married couple. It is a bit flimsy, the d├ęcor is pretty plain, but inside is an atmosphere of love, brightness
and warmth. The Chuppah serves as a model for all the homes they will build in
their future together. What makes a home happy is not the walls or the decorations,
but what fills it. Better a tent full of love than a three story mansion without it. The
Chuppah is open on all sides, just as Abraham and Sarah had their tent open on all
sides to welcome people in unconditional hospitality. The custom is to have the
Chuppah outside under the stars, as a sign of the blessing given by G-d to Abraham,
that his children shall be as the stars of the heavens.
