Real Weddings: Ashley + Jake

Married at the beautiful The Morton Arboretum outside Chicago, Ashley and Jake’s summer wedding was beautifully natural and simply elegant. White hydrangea and lisianthus were mixed with textured greenery in arrangements by Hinsdale Flower Shop. Ashley chose several of her vendors through Etsy, giving their wedding a sweet, crafty feel. From the beautiful trees of the venue, perfectly fresh florals, and the tangible adoration between Ashley and Jake, these wonderful photos by Simply Jessie Photography are full of life and love!











All of you Bay Area brides, take note – my lovely friends Jessie and Eric of Simply Jessie Photography are leaving Chicago and moving to Northern California!  I will be sad to see them go, but am so thrilled for them as they make the big move, and just know that they will be an amazing addition to the Bay Area photography scene!
