Weddings

Lauren + Mike | Abbey Farms Wedding

I love these two. From the first time we met, I knew I loved these two. They’re such a real couple. In love. So amazing to be around. Just some of the sweetest people I’ve been around. Honestly, I’ve been so blessed that I have really amazing couples and relationships I’ve made this year through following my dream. These two are no exception.

Their day was full of their closest friends standing by their side. A family full of so much love. And happiness. Standing there to witness them officially becoming Mr. and Mrs. was just a humbling experience <3 Everything about their love inspires my heart. Their day also wasn’t short of comedy, compliments of their bridal party (ahem groomsmen). A group of characters I tell you!

And a day of surprises. Mike works for the front office of the Chicago Cubs. Ever since they got engaged, Lauren would jokingly ask him “Is Pat Hughes coming to our wedding?” For those that don’t know, Pat is the announcer of the Chicago Cubs. While he never showed up, Mike pulled of an amazing surprise for his bride. After the speeches ended, Mike stood up to thank everyone for coming out. And to express his love for his new wife. He went on to tell the story of Pat Hughes. And then it happened. Over the speakers, it happened. Mike surprised Lauren by having Pat Hughes record a message for their wedding day. A mix of congratulatory wishes mixed with calling play-by-play of a came. It was absolutely amazing. And the look on Lauren’s face? Absolutely priceless. Well done, Mike. Well done!

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Bolz! I am beyond happy for you guys and wish you all the happiness <3
