What a year! 2014 was the most weddings Erin Stefanik Photography has photographed in one year, and 2015 has even more booked! I truly cannot thank all my bride & groom's, client's, and guests' who have attended the weddings for all your referrals! Looking forward to a fabulous 2015 and welcoming all the new couples to our Erin Stefanik Photography family! To all the vendors (who are tagged in all the weddings blog posts) we have worked with this year, many of you are now friends, and looking forward to working with you in 2015 as well!

But first, this year wouldn't have gone so smoothly without the help of my 2nd Photographers/Teammates:

Katie Hall Photography

Ron McKinney Photography

Sandra Ortiz Photography

Now the fun part, this year I decided to do a 2014 year in Review for all my couples who made this amazing year happen! Next blog post will be on my portrait/family clients of 2014, get ready for a pretty extremely long post!  I was able to photograph in some amazing churches & venues this year. Every one of Erin Stefanik Photography couples not only became clients, but we've grown to become friends and I share bonds with all my couples after getting to know each and every one of you & your amazing families, and even get to watch some your families grow when you become Parents, Aunts & Uncles. 


Here is 2014 Erin Stefanik Photography's Couples:

[Introducing From Left to Right, my favorite image from each Wedding.]

Top Row: Meghan & Mike, Bob & Bridget, Chris & Meghan, Dominic & MaryKate

2nd Row: Jon & Clare, Richard & David, Taylor & Tony, Matt & Liz

3rd Row: Kevin & Stefanie, Sean & Erin, Siohban & Joe, Ashley & Tommy

And to the bridal parties, you braved the cold Spring, the Summer heat, and Chicago's cold Winter to help me capture my vision. I thank you!

[LA Boxer Boy meets a Brown Eyed Girl] Taylor & Tony's Wedding was nothing but a fairytale. As the weather forecast was showing rain, and with some dark clouds peaking through the clouds in & out, even just before ceremony, the rain waited until after ceremony to show up for {goodluck}. Taylor & I grew up on the same street in Oak Forest, Tudor Road. So needless to say, it was a very meaningful street & endless ideas for some of the bridesmaids who had been friends with Taylor since grade school days at Foster. As Taylor was getting ready at the hotel and put her dress on in her childhood home, she was so relax and everything ran so smoothly. Tony, he was nothing but calm & collected. The way he loves his son & helped get Tyler dressed for the wedding, is priceless. 

Taylor & Tony had one of the BEST First Look's I've ever photographed. Filled with smiles, tears & lots of emotion. Then we had Tyler join them, and the family of three was complete. Their ceremony was short, simple and perfect. Being a June afternoon, it wasn't too hot or humid. Weather was perfect, and very calm, right before the storm arrived after ceremony.  After the couple exchanged vows and had their first kiss as husband and wife, the new Mr. & Mrs. hopped on a golf cart as the rain started to lightly drizzle, which turned into a down pour, while bride & groom & guests' made it back to the Reception room, without getting rained on. Everyone enjoyed themselves during cocktail hour & during the announcements of the bridal party, each bridal party member did some sort of boxing move, to display where Taylor & Tony met. Very nice touch of the bridal party, some of the moves were very creative. The dance floor was full the entire night! During the garter toss, Tony, before he got the garter, did a Michael Jackson dance routine, that was out of this world. Absolutely amazing and well done! As you can see in the photos below, Taylor was shocked but yet loved it & so did all the guests' surrounding them. While I took the couple outside for our WOW shot at the end of the night, the two couldn't be more in love or happier. And to finish the night, White Castles that was a big hit to all! Thank you Taylor & Tony for letting me be apart of your day, and welcome to the Erin Stefanik Photography Bride & Groom Family!
