It’s hard for me to decide where I should even begin with Meredith & Casey, their love, and the day they promised forever to one another. So, I’ll start at the beginning of their love story. Meredith & Casey met at a concert when Casey was just a stranger who photobombed a photo of Meredith and her friends. Whenever they tell the story, they both beam ear to ear between giggles, and yet all the while have this tone of gratefulness amidst what appears to be a silly story. It’s that tone of gratefulness that never leaves their voices whenever Meredith talks about Casey, or Casey talks about Meredith, and it’s something I picked up on right away with these two. That, and a million other reasons, is why I fell in love with their love immediately.

Meredith & Casey planned a day that allowed them to celebrate their forever centered around what is most important: each other. They chose not to have a bridal party, and instead spent their day adventuring around Chicago with me capturing it all by their side (as a fun side note- we got stopped and asked if they were a real bride & groom, or just models all. day. long because they are just that beautiful inside and out). And, while they chose to spend the majority of the day alone to soak in every moment, their loved ones were ready to pour their hearts and dance moves out as they celebrated Meredith & Casey all night long. And, let me tell you, it was epic.

While I could end my blog post there, I also need to get personal for a minute. Meredith & Casey are two humans that have hearts of pure gold, and souls that I swear were made to love one another. It’s something so rare to find on this planet, and somehow the universe gave me the gift of meeting them. I am beyond grateful.

Thank you for being you, Meredith & Casey. I am in awe of your love & your hearts was so thankful to be a part of the start to your forever.
