Michael + Torie- Morton Arboretum Wedding Photography, Lisle Illinois

Michael and Torie met at Bradley University, where they both studied to be engineers. A mutual friend set them up, and after many hang out sessions Michael finally worked up the nerve to ask Torie out on a date. Five years later on a romantic walk through the forest preserve with their pup, he got down on one knee and asked Torie to spend the rest of his life with him. Michael’s best man, Brian, told this story much better with lots of humor, and I must admit he receives the metal for best man speech that I have ever heard (and I’ve been to a lot of weddings).

Michael and Torie had a nature themed afternoon soiree at the Morton Arboretum. We did a first look so Michael’s nerves can settle a little before the ceremony, and boy was he stunned to see Torie in her timeless dress.  The ceremony was held outdoors, with the natural backdrop of the Arboretum stretching for miles behind us. The eggplant bridesmaids dresses complemented with sage was perfect for this natural outdoor wedding. After brunch and some mingling we drove around the grounds to grab some bridal party photos, and some intimate photos of Michael & Torie. The weather was beautiful, and everything went so smoothly. It was an honor to be a part of this wonderful wedding!
