Jillian & Jon


I was counting down the days.  This was the day that I could repay by photographing the girl that made MY bride look so beautiful on our wedding day…oh and my mop as well.  Jillian is not only an incredible artist and hair stylist, her heart for people and life is apparent in everything she does.  I had heard about this "crazy boy" named Jon for several visits in Jill's salon chair, and to finally meet this man that seized her heart was a joy.  He simply adores her!  I was honored to be behind the camera and make their fairytale wedding day at the American Swedish Institute's mansion come to life.  The fresh snow and chilly temps did not deter these two from a day of many laughs and tears, with their favorite people in the world looking on.  As they sealed their union with a tapestry painting, guests broke out in applause and the two stole away to seek a quiet space in the mansion.  On this day, everything was so right in the world that even the Swedish lamps seemed to flicker their approval.  Life will be brighter with your lights joined together.  I am a big fan.
