Zack + Erika // The Haight in Elgin, Illinois Wedding

I have known Zack and Erika for at least 5-6 years now. They have been friends of my husband since high school (at least). I got to meet them back when my husband and I were still dating. In fact, when my husband and I got married, Zack and Erika had just begun dating. Fast forward 4.5 years, now these two got married! It’s amazing how time flies. It’s been a sweet part for me to have in seeing their journey (although from afar since we live in separate states). It was even sweeter to be the one to photograph them on their wedding day at The Haight in Elgin.

I’m thankful to have friends all over the place in this world, and to be able to have opportunities like this one to document sacred moments. I loved their wedding.. from the thought out details (Zack and Erika are huge on DIY and just super thoughtful creative people in their own ways), to the pure emotions of love, joy, and of course, tears. It was sooo good.

Here’s their day.
