Wedding :: Brittany + Rick [Backyard Wedding, West Chicago, IL]

I met Brittany and Rick last year at Stephanie and Richard's wedding.  They are two wonderfully athletic, motivated and overall awesome people. As a past gymnast, Brittany was super detailed oriented from the details of the decorations to her unique rose gold wedding band. I endearingly call this, the Pinterest wedding. Brittany and her family and friends did SUCH an amazing job prepping her parent's backyard for the wedding.

The day of, being the Ironman he is, Rick and his groomsmen went for a morning ride, while the girls got ready at the Swantek home. I loved that they all wore Zoot shoes. We were a little fearful of the previous rain, but the moisture held and the sun even peeked out late in the afternoon. It was the most perfect weather for an intimate backyard celebration. 

I admire everything about the way Brittany and Rick are close to family and the love they have for each other . You can feel the love, happiness and emotion through these visuals. Enjoy the images below, they are only a small fraction of all the beautiful memories from June 22.
