Priscilla + Cody // The Odyssey Country Club Wedding // Tinley Park, Illinois

I met Priscilla in high school, we had gone to a football game with some mutual friends and went to steak and shake before hand. It was too fun! Then we ended up being in the same friend group for a while!

Then we reconnected again when she won an engagement shoot! Then she trusted me enough after that to shoot her wedding! I’m nothing but grateful for these two, because they’re the coolest, and they believed in me before even I did! 🙂

This wedding was absolutely stunning. Priscilla was such a beautiful bride, and her bridesmaids were the perfect accessory. Mitch and I had so much fun with the bridal party we couldn’t stop talking about it the whole way home! Its so hard to say what my favorite part of wedding days are. Lets just make a list of top 5 for this one:

  1. Sunset portraits
  2. Priscilla’s dress had POCKETS.
  3. Their choreographed first dance
  4. Sunset portraits
  5. The bridal party entrance
  6. details details details
  7. The choreographed bridesmaids dance
  8.  The bridal party
  9. The matron of honors song
  10. Did I mention sunset portraits?

I could have easily gone to 25 on that list, (without repeats). But really, these pictures are going to be some of my favorites I already know it!

Thank you Priscilla + Cody for trusting me when you hired me with zero wedding experience and a few engagement shoots under my belt. Mitchell and I couldn’t be more thankful to know you and to have spent your day with you.
