salvatores chicago wedding | stacy + heidi

salvatoreswedding_ellerosephoto_sh-84 Heidi and Stacy, these two beautiful people were married on a gorgeous Chicago summer day surrounded by some of the most entertaining friends and wonderful families around! There was a common theme throughout the day – a love of weddings and agreement all around that Heidi’s family is just the best, and I could not agree more! Everyone was just so happy + excited to be there celebrating Stacy + Heidi as they officially became man + wife and extended the family! I started the morning with Heidi and her faves while Maggie was hanging with Stacy and his delightfully entertaining group of groomsmen – a group we will not forget : ) salvatoreswedding_ellerosephoto_sh-1 Sooooo many gorgeous details that Heidi picked out and put together!

Most hilarious moment of the day?: Most hilarious but scary part was right before I was going to get out of the limo and walk down the aisle my dress clasp snapped but my cousin, Ali one of the bridesmaids, had her sewing kit and sewed me back up just in time!
Would you have done anything differently?: Many people told me to stop throughout the day to look around and enjoy the moment and I wish I did that more at the reception! It was the best day of our lives but also the fastest day!
Favorite moment from your day?: My favorite moment was walking down the aisle with my father to Stacy.  Seeing Stacy and holding onto my dad made me feel calm as I had so many nerves up until that part!
Any tips or tricks for future couples planning their weddings?: People really do say that the day flies by so take it all in and pause when you can. Know that everyone that is celebrating the love that you two share!
