Enrico and Erica had been together for ten years before getting married – that amount of time lends a certain ease to their relationship, a natural comfort that really showed during their wedding.

It was held at Cuneo Mansion in Vernon Hills, which is close to my heart because I grew up near there, and have fond memories of seeing the holiday light show there as a kid. This summer day, though, the grounds and mansion were daubed in a beautiful, warm summer light – a perfect complement to the cream short wedding dress that Erica wore, and the totally sweet purple velvet suit that Enrico was sporting!
