One of the first things Candice and Bill mentioned when they described their wedding to us for the first time was how they were going to do their best to include their pet pig, Rosie, into the big day. We were excited to say the least! The couple had a beautiful ceremony and reception at the Hotel Monaco and it was fantastic to work with so many talented wedding professionals. Here are a few of our favorite photos!

Brette and Patrick had a beautiful June wedding at St. Gregory The Illuminator Armenian Church and Carnivale in Chicago. Before the ceremony we visited Montrose Harbor for a unique blend of photos with the Chicago skyline and a city backdrop as well as some beautiful nature. We also popped over the the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pond. The Armenian Orthodox ceremony was gorgeous and included some interesting traditional rituals, such as the crowning of the bride and groom. After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed a fun-filled evening at the colorful Carnivale restaurant in downtown Chicago. Here are a few favorite photos from the day!

Sam and Leslie took us to two of their favorite Chicago spots for their engagement session. They got engaged at Olive Park, so the location has extra special meaning for them! We can’t wait to photograph the wedding next May at A New Leaf.

Mike and Nell were a blast to work with for their June wedding at the beautiful Greenhouse Loft in Chicago. We started with bridal party photos near their Logan Square home in Palmer Square and Humboldt Park. The weather was great for a garden ceremony at the venue and everyone got down on the dance floor later on in the evening! Here are a few of our favorite photos.

Katie and Tom had a beautiful downtown Chicago wedding with a ceremony at the St. James Cathedral in the Quigley Center. Tom’s great great uncle was Cardinal Mundelein, who built the St. James chapel, so the setting had extra special meaning for the couple. The evening ended in the stunning Holiday Inn Merchandise Mart with fantastic views of Chicago and, as always, a great dance floor from Cage and Aquarium. Here are a few of our favorite photos!

We’ve had a handful of blue sky, perfect 70 degree weather days this summer and Kat and Justin managed to land one for their downtown Chicago engagement session at Kinzie Street Bridge and Montrose Harbor. We can’t wait for their wedding later this summer at Gallery 1028!
