My brother's wedding!

My brother, Michael, got married to an amazingfantastic girl named Lauren last month on October 23rd. The whole week was lovely and the wedding was as close to perfection as you can get. The weather was soooo beautiful and perfect (especially for late October in northern Illinois!), the ceremony was short and sweet (i. cried. the. whole. time.) the bride was beyond gorgeous and it was thrilling to see my brother so happy! And the whole thing was so perfect I have to save the wedding decor for another post. Here are lots of pics!
