VENUE: REDFIELD ESTATE | PHOTOGRAPHY: CUSIC PHOTOGRAPHY | CATERING: HANDCUT FOODS (The groom's company!) | CAKE: AMY BECK CAKE DESIGN | PHOTOBOOTH CAMERA: SHUTTERBOX ENTERTAINMENT | FLORALS: NILEE EVENT DECOR | HAIR AND MAKEUP: TOTAL IMAGE BRIDAL | DJ: TOAST + JAM | ROLLS ROYCE: CLASSIC WEDDING CAR | VIDEOGRAPHY: VANILLA VIDEO

What an incredible day. After rain threatened, we ended up with sunshine and warmth (and a lot of humidity). Garrett and Minda tied the knot at the glorious Redfield Estate in August. It was an incredibly emotional ceremony followed by delicious hors d'oeuvres, an excellent buffet of Chicago style hot dogs and Italian beef, and an awesome dance party! Minda's father made the cutest photobooth, the Rocky theme played during their first kiss, and let's just bask in the glory that was Minda's dresses. What a queen. Candice Cusic captured their day so beautifully, up until they left in the vintage Rolls Royce.

We wish these two beautiful people a happy and long life together!

Okay, so yes, we had the gorgeous dress, the amazing florals from Erin at A Stem Above, the luckiest weather, that gorgeous rooftop, the incredible band. But what really made Amy and Sean's wedding so absolutely hands-down fantastic was Amy and Sean themselves. Down-to-earth, hilarious, and so in love, these two are just an awesome couple. Their ceremony was so unbelievably sweet and they had a blast chatting and dancing the night away with their equally-awesome guests.

Could we gush some more?? Yes we could, but let's let the photos from Z+V speak for themselves! Congratulations, you two beautiful people!
