Sometimes, things are so meant to be and work out exactly as they are supposed to. Lisa was born and raised in Michigan, but shortly after graduating from Western Michigan University she headed out on a great adventure. An adventure to Chicago where she'd meet her future husband. Mike, was originally from Lake Charles, Louisiana, grew up in Chicago, and then moved a lot throughout his life! It took both of them settling in Chicago and attending a birthday party for a mutual friend for them to meet the loves of their lives and this beautiful relationship to flourish!! After three years of dating Mike proposed in San Marco Square!! And the rest, as they say, is history!! Love these two!!
Married in New Orleans
Lisa and Mike knew they wanted an epic wedding, a wedding where guests walked away thinking, "this was so much fun and like no other wedding I have been to." That is exactly what they got in NOLA.
They both prepped at the Loews New Orleans where they spent quality time with their closest friends and family. They were married at St. Louis Cathedral and partied the night away at Republic New Orleans.
The adoration and love in the family was intoxicating! Lisa's mom and sister knew exactly what Lisa wanted before she had to say it and her nieces watched the entire time. They couldn't take their eyes off her!
Before we did the first look with Lisa's future husband, we set up a quick first look for her dad. It was a special moment between her and her dad and having her mom set her topped it off! There was no rush. It was simple and sweet. We love when you've got enough time to have those special moments!
First Look: Lisa & Mike in the Loews Lobby
Because it was raining outside, Sarah Brooke staged Lisa and Mike in the lobby where the staff were so supportive! They disappeared for the entire shoot!
We could not be more happy for a couple! Lisa and Mike were a blessing to work with and a joy to get to know! I loved every second with y'all and wish y'all all the best in the world!! Hugs you too!
