When we met Bahareh and Justin for their engagement session at Chicago Botanic Garden we have been looking forward to their wedding at The Grove. The love they have oozes out in the most comfortable, adoring way and with their love of the outdoors, its been an absolute perfect match for us in both photographic style and personality. Bahareh and Justin's day started off with rain, and by rain I mean black skies, your car lights on and torrential downpours. It wasn't exactly what Bahareh had in mind for her garden wedding.The rain did indeed stop and in my opinion their day might have been better than if there wasn't any at all!! The greens became electric and their guests mingeld and had a wonderful time. The day was full to the brim with the most thoughtful of details and the most eyecandy I have ever seen in one wedding. The amazing flowers were done by Kelly of Fleur and she outdid herself. Just wait and see.
There was so much to share from their day , that you will have to come back tomorrow for Part 2!! Stay tuned!
Eric was with the guys as they got ready. And yes those are knotted yarn cufflinks!
The rain stopped just in time for Bahareh and Justin to spend some time alone in the freshly watered woods.
The sun came out from behind the clouds during the ceremony and shone in brightly as the two said their vows. It was one of the sweetest most heartfelt ceremonies I have witnessed.

Bahareh and Justin have a love for animals and it was one of the things that brought these two together. Each table had a vintage animal postcard and they had little animal figurines serve as cake toppers. The unbelievable florals and table stop styling was done by Kelly of Fleur.
