Katie and Greg’s style really showed through in their wedding! We loved the orange colors for the beautifully sunny September day they had. The ceremony was held at St. Edna’s Catholic Church in Arlington Heights and the reception was held at the Royal Melbourne Country Club in Long Grove. We had a blast and here are a few of our favorites!

Jerrie loves to bake and cook, so they brought us to their apartment for a Julia Child inspired engagement session. It was cupcakes galore and we loved their adorable and creative ideas! Then we headed outside to enjoy the beautiful fall weather and take photos at nearby Montrose Harbor. We can’t wait for their wedding next spring at Vincent restaurant in Andersonville. Here are a few of our favorite shots!

We caught up with Christina and Maureen and their three dogs at a small, but beautiful park on an empty lot near their Chicago home toward the end of October for their engagement photos. We can’t wait for their wedding next month at ARTango on Ravenswood. Here are just a few favorites from their engagement session.

We loved the vision that Kevin and Abbey had for their wedding photos and despite the rainy September day, we were able to capture many gorgeous photos at historic Chicago locations. We started with getting ready photos at the Congress Plaza Hotel downtown on Michigan Avenue. Their ceremony was held at the stunning Rockefeller Memorial Chapel on University of Chicago’s campus. The celebration resumed at the Columbus Park Refectory on Chicago’s west side. We simply love the look of this classic wedding! Here are a few of our favorite photos.

Cora and Brad had a gorgeous wedding at the historic University of Chicago campus at the Quadrangle Club. A quick stroll through campus provided a beautiful backdrop for the bridal party’s photos before the ceremony and reception happened at the Club. The evening ended with a great party! Here are a few of our favorite photos.

Jamie and Michael’s wedding day was picture perfect! Once the bridal party was ready, the couple was married at the historic St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Old Town. Afterward we headed to take photos among some beautiful backdrops in Lincoln Park before everyone joined up for a stunning reception at Pazzo’s 311. We had a blast and here are a few of our favorite shots from the day!

A little rain couldn’t stop Nico and Dawn from having a beautiful wedding at A New Leaf in September. Attached to a gorgeous floral shop in Old Town, A New Leaf is one of Chicago’s beloved wedding venues and we were thrilled to be back. We also loved that Dawn handmade her wedding dress with the help of her very talented grandmother! We made it outside for lots of gorgeous photos throughout Lincoln Park despite a little September drizzle! Here are a few of our favorite shots.
