The room was moody and cool. Cool as in Danny Zuko and the T-birds cool. Velvet couches, an old telephone booth, and a bar meant for serving, it was quite the scene. The dark wood paneled walls and ceiling of the Sinatra Room at The Drake Oak Brook, Autograph Collection was such a perfect room for Brett and the gents to get ready in. Literally like an epic bachelor pad. But they weren’t there for one last guys outing, it was finally happening. Jenni and Brett were getting married. And even with the darkness of the room, there was a light and warmth. Brett’s happiness was filling the entire space. As he was fixing his cufflinks we asked him what he’s most excited for about finally seeing Jenni for their first look. He sighed and with the biggest smile on his face he said, “honestly just seeing her in her dress. I know she’s been so excited about it and she’s going to look amazing.” And spoiler… Brett was right. Jenni looked gorgeous! They both did. Such a beautiful couple.

But we’re not here to only talk about how these two looked. We’ll let the photos speak for themselves because we’re kinda obsessed. Okay that’s an understatement, we’re in love with everything about their day. This moment with Brett speaks volumes about their love for one another. Jenni and Brett are romantic. From the outside, their love seems classic and old-fashioned. They take care of one another. They adore each other. They keep their families close. They share a special bond. So special that when they talk about one another they have the biggest smiles on their faces. So you can only imagine how big and contagious their smiles are when they lock eyes with one another. It’s so heartwarming to witness. Even more than that we could tell that they both were just happy for this day to finally be here. Not even the rain in the forecast could ruin their happiness, because all that mattered was finally becoming one. It was magical! 

Jenni and Brett, thank you so much for letting us be a part of your special day! Everything was picture perfect. From your elegant and classic vibes to your love for traveling being the theme of your decor. It was amazing to see your vision come to life! We adore your love for each other and know that you have a beautiful future together. We loved watching you two together, especially because of how much you two smile and laugh when you’re together. It’s contagious! Can we just be your permanent third wheel for every occasion?! Cheers to forever Mr. & Mrs. P! #Paulyouneedislove
