Beth & Tim // Chicago Wedding

The adage goes that opposites attract, but both Beth & Tim are hilarious, loving, deep, selfless people.  Their garden wedding was on the hottest day in Chicago in 2018 thus far, so we were all preparing for endless sun and doing everything we could to make sure nobody passed out...but who was taking care of everyone?  Tim and Beth.  They asked if everyone had enough water and were always looking for ways to make their friends more comforatble.  Beth and Tim’s love brought together people from all over the country who were all too happy to be sweating it out for these lovebirds (if they were able to, Tim and Beth would insert a sound effect here).

When Beth started her vows, we were wowed—her words lacked grandeur, but were filled with meaning.  We were blown away.  Later, Matt mentioned that he thought the most emotional part was over, but when Tim started his vows, the tears started flowing (that would be our tears—and many guests!).  We've heard our fair share of vows, but these were debatably the most beautiful we've ever heard.  The vows were straight truth told in love, and they promised to continue to choose each other.
