Abby & Steve’s Keith House Wedding – Part 1

 

At the beginning of the summer, we had the pleasure of working with Abby & Steve on their intimate wedding at the Keith House, a beautiful historic home in the South Loop/Prairie District. They were such a wonderful couple, and a joy to work with… we loved seeing their charming wedding come together in a house full of love, family, and friends. We absolutely love these photos from Genevieve Lauren Photography!
