Gintare + AJ // Chicago Wedding Photography


Gintare + AJ are incredibly fun. For their engagement session they were smashing giant snow balls on each other’s heads, check it out if you haven’t already. They tied the knot at the historic Henry Jacob Mansion in Joliet, about 40 miles outside of Chicago. This place had history oozing out of every nook and cranny. An amazing place to have their wedding. Not only that, but it fit Gintare and AJ’s personality very well. Gintare has a Lithuanian heritage and we observed some incredible Lithuanian traditions. AJ playes in a polka band so you better believe it when I tell you when AJ and his brother got on the drums and bass. Though they don’t necessarily know what they are singing – since it’s mostly in Polish – they still sounded epic – and a great time was had by all! Enjoy the photos and cheers!!
