Ryan & Diana were married back in the end of June. Their ceremony was held at St. Vincent DePaul Church in Chicago, followed by a reception at Inverness Golf Club. We had great weather and were able to spend some time on the Inverness course to take plenty of great Relaxed Portraits prior to heading on over to the cocktail hour and reception. This was one of my favorite weddings this summer and I just loved working with Ryan & Diana! They are naturals in front of the camera which makes my job all that much easier!
Here are a few words from Diana regarding how she and Ryan met as well as their planning process for the wedding.
Ryan and I met during the summer in Chicago at a friend’s barbeque. After a few dates and a long summer, it was time to return to our last semester of college. After many train rides between Kalamazoo and Chicago, Ryan soon moved back to the city after graduation. Four years passed by and Ryan had planned the perfect proposal during Memorial Day Weekend, which was the same weekend we first met. During the Navy Pier fireworks, Ryan got down on one knee and proposed. It was the perfect evening! Over the past year, we have had a wonderful time planning our wedding together with our families. We are looking forward to celebrating with our family and friends. We are getting married at St. Vincent DePaul, which is in the neighborhood we met, and our reception is at Inverness Golf Club.
