Arrowhead Golf Club Wedding
Kaitlyn and Trent both spent their summers working at the Centennial Beach in Naperville as well as many other friends and family. Everyone knew they would be a perfect match before they even did. After a little time they found their way together, and realized for themselves how perfect they were together as well.
Kaitlyn and Trent have a huge support system of family and friends, and there is no wonder why. They are two of the most kindest people you will ever meet, and role models of true love. Being is the presence of Kaitlyn and Trent is being in the presence of the definition of soul mates.
The wedding day was gorgously filled with lovely flowers, candles, shades of blush, a little glam, a little vintage, and a whole lot of meaning. Kaitlyn used her grandmother’s purse and the amazing table card display was made by their talented bother in law Tim (also a past GCP Groom 😉 )
Kaitlyn and Trent, Tom and I were so honored to have photographed your wedding day. We truly wish you nothing but your very own happily ever after!
So much love, Gina and Tom xoxo

Hey there! First of all Tom and I want to give a big welcome to all the new followers we have, and a thank you for all the support we have received with this renovation. We had no idea so many people loved following Ruby Jane’s progress!
This past couple weeks Tom washed the walls, we painted them a nice crisp white, installed the floors (yay!), and started painting and installing the walls and beds back in.
Amazing what a difference a fresh coat of paint makes.
True artist always sign their work.
Tom brought the walls home and painted them a crisp white as well.
If you follow my Instagram, you know my obsession with my new Writer Letterfolk board. As soon as it arrived, I had to get the smaller Letterfolk (The Poet) for the airstream. I can not wait until the day our Letterfolk is hung on one of Ruby Jane’s walls!
Someone is excited that the original fan still works!
Something else exciting happened this week, we received our numbers and they are the SAME as the original! So we can research the history of Ruby Jane and keep her in the club she has always been a part of.
After installing the walls, we have decided that the interior of the beds (head board and foot board) should be wallpapered due to how much they will become scratched. Below are some of our choices and ONE of these is our final decision. But you will have to wait and see which one we decided!
Salvage One Wedding
Today is the one year anniversary of my brother Beau’s wedding. Beau and Jackie asked that I did not share their images from the wedding when they were completed so they could surprise family with gifts for the holidays. Plus they were able to re live the day with family as they shared the full wedding edit at holiday parties. This past summer a client asked when they would be able to see the pictures and I remembered I never did blog them!
So I figured it would be a perfect way to celebrate my favorite couple from my favorite wedding on their anniversary.
I am so proud of my brother and the man he has become. He found the most perfect girl. If I myself searched the world, I could not find anyone as perfect for him and our family as Jackie. For the wedding they wanted an intimate celebration at a unique location with amazing food and the best music. And they executed their wedding dreams flawlessly. Yes, Tom and I photographed the day and loved doing it. Nicole came to the ceremony and cocktail hour to help get a different view at church and to make sure Tom and I were able to be in family photos.
Beau and Jackie LOVE to travel…and they are well on their way to seeing the world. So for their wedding they chose a travel theme. Everything from the invites to table cards incorporated their love for travel. I love that their table were named after their favorite travel spots thus far.
Everything that day had meaning. Jackie’s wedding bands were made from diamonds from one of my Grandmother’s rings. Beau and Jackie were married by close friends of our family Father Ken and Father Dave. We have been on backpacking trips with them both. Father Ken married Tom and I, baptized Ava, Owen, Beau and I. A cake topper in honor of their fur baby, Oso. Plus a little Michigan State and Iowa State rivalry.
It was truly a perfect wedding day, everyone had such a great time and it went by way to fast.
Jackie and Beau we are so happy for you both and the wonderful first year of marriage you have had. We wish you a hundred more amazing years! So much love, Gina and Tom
