A chat with Chicago photographer Emma Mullins (& why I chose her to capture my own wedding!)

Some of y'all may know that I recently got married in Chicago! It's been such a fun time to look back and reminisce about the wedding day, and that's been especially easy to do since we got our photos and video from our amazing photographer, Emma Mullins Photography.

I asked Emma to answer a few questions so that we could get to know her a bit better and understand why she's such a wizard with a camera and ALLLL about her new videography business. Spoiler: the video we received brings us to tears EVERY TIME we re-watch it. Let's meet the maker of all this magic…

Arcade games & epic foliage at this whimsical green & purple wedding

Laura and Creighton are gamers whose colorful green and purple wedding in Madison, Wisconsin blew our minds. From the epic amounts of foliage and greenery and whimiscal decor (that arch!) to the lush vine-covered cake to the Laura's purple and green corset gown and matching hair, we were smitten by these two lovebirds.

Don't miss the video games, board games, and arcade games(!) that gave everyone something rad to do at the reception…

This intimate, queer state capitol wedding brought the perfect amount of rainbow magic

Megan and Bri met at a roller derby after party, spent the evening talking about My Little Pony, and everything just clicked from there. It was love. They love spending time together fishing, hiking, watching PBS, and playing games, or cuddling with their two kitties, Little and Georgia.

Their wedding was intimate, with just their two sets of parents, Bri's sister, and Megan's aunt, and was absolutely lovely. Megan's dad bought a rainbow umbrella in case of rain, and while it wasn't originally part of the plan, pretty much everyone in attendance had their picture taken with the umbrella, even their officiant, Judge Kloppenburg!
