Farris Chicago Skyline Engagement

Way back in the day Sarah got a dog, a cute BIG dog. We did an awesome photo shoot with her, not so little pooch. I loved every minute of it. Anytime I get a phone call and someone says “ can I bring my dog?” I get really excited, but this one was, “I just want a photoshoot with my dog”. It’s what dreams are made of. If you want to check that shoot out. Click here.

Now lets fast forward to a couple years later and Sarah gets engaged. WE DO ANOTHER PHOTOSHOOT with her awesome pooch and her other forever.

Along with this incredible couple came Sarahs mom to wrangle the not so big pooch, but there was also a surprise planned for her mom. Sarah restored her mothers wedding dress and revealed it to her on this day. Not only did her mom wear the dress but her grandma as well. Wait….there is more. Her great grandmother made this dress for her grandma 69 years ago. Are you crying yet? 4 generations of women have touched this dress. This also goes to show what a thoughtful person Sarah is.

Here are the before photos of Sarahs dress that has been in her family for 69 years. Her great grandmother made it from her Grandma to wear on her wedding day. Sarah has always wanted to wear the dress on her wedding day but by the time she was 11 the hem was already too short. Sarah made it in to a dress for her rehearsal dinner and revealed it to her mother and grandmother on this day. It was absolutely lovely and special day. I am so glad that I was a part of it.

The amazing alterations were done by Sew Bridal Chicago. The dress was yellow after all that time and they did an incredible job restoring the color and bringing life back to the dress.

My best friend is getting married! It's going to be like a movie. Maybe we should make a movie out of it. 

Katie and Doug have been friends forever and dating for 3 years and I'm proud to have Doug as a best friend in law. Doug asked Katie at Montrose beach at a sunrise they were watching, so of course we had to go back to Montrose for their engagement photos.
