May 21, 2019

Hey friends and Happy Tuesday! We Caitlin and Luke, we are Aurora IL Wedding Photographers! Melanie & Mike host their reception at one of our favorite Aurora IL wedding venues, Stonebridge Country Club! It is such a beautiful venue and such a great place to host a beautiful reception!

Tuesday’s during wedding season are SO FUN around here, and by now, we’re sure you guys know why!! 😉 Tuesdays are the days we get to share the past weekend’s wedding with you all right here on the blog, and that’s exactly what we get to do today- woohoo!

Let’s just say that Luke and I have been counting down the days to Melanie and Mike’s wedding day from the very first time we ever got a chance to interact with them- which, if we remember correctly, was over the sweetest and most fun FaceTime call!! Then, we got to spend time with them in person at their engagement session, and we had SUCH an amazing time with these guys that it made us even more excited than we already were for their wedding day!

We literally cannot say enough about these two and who they are as people! Anyone who knows Melanie and Mike knows and can attest that they are some of the most genuinely kind and caring people on the planet… plus, a heck of a lot of fun to hang with!! 😉 We could shoot their wedding every weekend and be totally thrilled about it!!!

Melanie and Mike, in case you guys can’t tell, we love you guys a lot!! You guys are a photographer’s DREAM to work with, and we have adored becoming friends with you guys throughout your wedding experience! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being SO good to us from literally day one… it has not gone unnoticed, and we will miss having a reason to chat and spend time with you two!! 😉 Here’s to staying in touch as you guys start out your married life together!! A huge congrats again from the two of us… we can’t believe your sweet day has already come and gone, and it was our JOY to be a part of it!!

Xoxo,
Caitlin & Luke | Aurora IL Wedding Photographers
