Mr and Mrs Cleary

Every once in a blue moon you meet someone who just instantly makes you feel like family. These two, and their entire families, do just that. From our first meeting to the wedding, we were always greeted with hugs and shared laughs - that’s just how they are! These two are clearly meant to be together - she is always trying to find ways to make him happy, like engagement pictures at Notre Dame or a super fun Groom’s Cake to make him smile. And when he looks at her, it’s obvious that what he sees is perfect in his mind. Their story of how they got to this beautiful day is one for the books, but I’ll let them tell that another time. 

What I can tell you, is that it was a long time in the making and everyone was overjoyed to finally see them say their “I do’s”. The locations were beautiful and perfectly fitting for them! The Jewel Box in Forest Park made a cold day (I mean they were originally calling for SNOW!) feel warm and cozy. And The Old Rockhouse was the perfect reception site, full of so much character and unique details - just like the Bride in her purple wedding dress!

Paul and Laura, thank you so much for inviting us into your world and letting us tell your story. It’s a beautiful one and I can only hope we did it justice! We wish you nothing but the best for your future! I have a feeling lots and lots of happy times are ahead for you both! Congratulations!
