Mia and Hunter married on a sunny, chilly Chicago day in late March this year and we are so excited to share their wedding photos! The couple got ready at the Aloft hotel downtown and then we took a trolley throughout the city to take photos at some of their favorite Chicago locations. The wedding ceremony was held at Kitchen Chicago. The evening ended with a fantastic party with a view of the Chicago skyline at City View Loft. We were honored to partner with Pure Kitchen Catering and Cattails Florist for Mia and Hunter’s wedding.

We are catching up on a few more weddings that happened late last year! Here is Jessica and Ben’s November wedding at one of our favorite venues, Ravenswood Event Center.

Moving along with our 2014 wedding recaps this week, it’s a thrill to share Elizabeth and John’s beautiful October wedding day! It was a stunningly perfect fall day in late October and we had a great time outdoors snapping photos in the sun with the wedding party! The ceremony took place at St. Nicholas Church and the reception was held at the elegant Skokie Country Club. It was a beautiful day that ended with an epic party and Cage and Aquarium dance floor! Here are a few of our favorite moments.
