Megan and I underestimated the cold Chicago wind on a spring day, but I have to say it didn't damper how gorgeous Megan is!

By the way, I will be out of the office until May 5 with limited internet access.  *Sniff, how will I survive without my iphone wifi games?* I will return all calls and e-mails upon my return.

"They are sooo nice! I love this couple!"

If I received a piece of wedding cake for each time I heard people describe Linda and Steve this way, I would weigh 200 gazillion pounds. I'm not exaggerating.

After photographing this wedding, I agree. I LOVE THIS COUPLE!


They have that complete ease of couples secure in their love for each other with a bunch of passion thrown into the mix.

Grown men do cry, especially when one of them is marrying his love of life.

Laughter, silliness, and balloons are the perfect ingredients to any wedding reception.

Linda and Steve's guests and family were as friendly and kind as the newlyweds.

Okay, enough about my love for them, I should allow the photos to speak for themselves.  I'm sure you'll fall in love with Linda and Steve too.

Click here for a slideshow of these photos and more.  Thanks to Maggie Rife, my second photographer, for her great photography.  Can you guess which photos are hers?
