MADELEINE + THOMAS | CHICAGO ELOPEMENT AT SHAKESPEARE GARDEN

Maddie & Thomas met at Yale during grad school. She was stress about her qualifying exam coming up in 2 months so she went to a party to blow off some steam. Turns out it was the best idea ever! Because there she met him (who apparently had the sunburn of all sunburns lol.) They got to talking and really hit it off. 6 years, 2 PhD’s, 1 dog and countless memories later, they tied the knot in the lovely Shakespeare Garden outside of Chicago, surrounded by their immediate family. We followed that with some cake, champagne, a downtown stroll and some portraits, and this low-key but lovely day was absolutely beautiful! I’m so thankful they entrusted me with their memories. Congratulations Maddie & Thomas!
