Summer Chicago Resort Wedding

Alexa and Pat’s summer resort wedding was an absolute summer dream and perfectly them.

A Quick Refresher

You may remember them from their killer Wrigley Building engagement session, and I was so excited to continue to capture their love story on their wedding day. To refresh your memory, Alexa and Pat have known each other since elementary school and have been together since right after college. There is something so special about knowing someone (basically) your whole life and spending the rest of your life with that person! It’s been all about forever since that first taco and marg date. The two share an ADORABLE little boy, and they love watching each other be the best parents to that sweet boy!

Easy Like (Saturday) Morning

Alexa spent the morning getting ready with her girls, playing music, and hanging out. She was so calm and just absolutely ready for her summer resort wedding. Calm and laid-back really was the theme of the day – both Alexa and Pat were so present for their day, and it was wonderful to watch.

In Their Own Words

I asked Alexa and Pat to describe their relationship. This was their response: “A beautiful relationship built on trust, support, and lots of love!” It doesn’t get much better than that!

Sweet Ceremony

Alexa and Pat’s ceremony was so sweet and full of love. They were joined by so many of their friends in the bridal party, and you could really feel the love and support from that group. The minister told their story during the ceremony, and I know everyone enjoyed hearing about how they met and all about their love story.

Big Party People!

Alexa and Pat are down-to-earth, easy, relaxed people. Their bridal party was huge, but they were all great to be around and work with. After their sweet ceremony, the party really started – and these people really let loose and had a great time! It was so fun to watch them all dance together. I know it was great for them to all be together and have a great time after the last year we had! 

Thank you, Alexa and Pat, for allowing me to capture your summer resort wedding – it was a joy to be around you on your big day. I hope you enjoyed your honeymoon!
