Church of the Ascension Garden Wedding: Paloma & Trevor

A couple laughs together in Lincoln Park after their Church of Ascension garden wedding in Chicago.

Paloma and Trevor’s Church of the Ascension Garden wedding was such a bright spot this September and was one of the highlights of the crazy year that was 2020. Although they had to downsize to a much smaller wedding than they had originally planned, they were absolutely radiant and their love for each other was so clear throughout the day.

From the small glimpses at each other during their ceremony to their continuous laughter throughout our portrait session, it was hard to narrow down their photos to so few. EVERY moment with these two was a joy to witness. One particular image that comes to mind happened after their ceremony when they had a phone call with relatives who were unable to make it. The emotion of everyone in the image is so palpable and is one of my favorites from all of last year.

Thanks so much for having me be a part of your day! It was truly an honor to document these moments with you both!
