Jackie and Matt held a beautiful wedding at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Deerfield and a gorgeous reception at the White Deer Run Golf Club in Vernon Hills. The evening ended with a fantastic C+A dance party and a fun sparkler photo with the bride and groom. Here are a few of our favorite photos!

Kelsey and Mark had a picture perfect Chicago day in early September for their wedding at the Ravenswood Event Center Industrial Ballroom. We met up with them downtown and headed throughout the city with just the two of them for a few photos before the ceremony and reception. The evening ended with a delicious dinner and a packed dance floor from Cage and Aquarium! Here are a few of our favorite photos.

Molly and Ian had a gorgeous wedding at their friend’s private property in LaPorte, Indiana. The red barn was the perfect backdrop for an intimate ceremony with their close family and friends. Molly, who heads up Limelight Catering in Chicago, was a stunning bride with a penchant for great tasting food. We loved the barbeque food truck they brought out to feed their guests! The evening ended with a great dance party. Here are a few of our favorite photos!

Fog covered the city on Andrea and Ryan’s wedding morning, but that didn’t hinder us from taking some beautiful downtown Chicago wedding photos once they finished getting ready at the Sheraton Hotel. We wandered to the Michigan Avenue Bridge and took some gorgeous photos along the river before the storm chased us back to the hotel! Then everyone headed to the Revolution Brewery in Logan Square for the ceremony, reception and great dance party provided by Cage and Aquarium.

When Megan contacted us to photograph her and Tim’s Chicago engagement session, we were so excited. Less than a year ago we photographed her sister Reilly’s engagement session and had a blast. Both sisters and their fiance’s planned weddings in their native Kansas City, but wanted to highlight the great city they live in now for engagement photos! It was a little drizzly the Sunday of Megan and Tim’s session, so we ended up at a great indoor spot, Union Station. Here are a few of our favorites from the session!

What could be more fun at a wedding than the color orange and good beer? Jenn and David’s lighthearted personalities shone through at their Revolution Brewery Taproom wedding in August. The wedding party got ready for the day at the gorgeous Langham Hotel and then headed all over the city for a few photos before arriving at the brewery for the ceremony and reception. Once the party kicked off, everyone enjoyed an all vinyl wax wedding set by Cage and Aquarium’s DJ Moppy and lots of fantastic beer and food! Here are some of our favorite photos.

Alisa and Joshua’s wedding was held on a picture perfect August day! We couldn’t have been more thrilled to work with an outstanding team of professionals to help capture a fantastic wedding. After the bride and groom had a “first look” near their hotel, the bridal party traveled around the city for photos at Museum Campus and the Kinzie Street Bridge. The ceremony and reception, held at Galleria Marchetti, were fabulous. After the garden ceremony, guests enjoyed the outdoor patio and later danced the night away inside the recently renovated ballroom. Here are a few of our favorite photos!

We are excited to share Kelsey and Peter’s beautiful August wedding! It took place in their hometown of Hinsdale, IL. The ceremony was held at Zion Lutheran Church. Afterward the guests arrived at the stunning Hinsdale Golf Club for a picture perfect evening and a hopping dance floor from Cage and Aquarium ended the evening. Here are a few of our favorite photos!
