Apparently the Chicago White Sox World Series Championship was a big deal to these two. :-) Frank & Nicole hold this awesome feat by an amazing team close to their hearts as they plan a future together. Maybe one day they’ll have their own ball club (if you know what I mean). Love, Fun, and great personalities are things that I love to see from the couples I have the opportunity to photograph. We look forward to being there on their wedding day. Here are a few images from Frank and Nicole’s day at the Ball Park.
