We loved garden oasis in the middle of the city for Tyler and Travis’ City Winery summer ceremony in Chicago. The guests continued the festivities inside the venue’s stunning restaurant area. We couldn’t be more thrilled to share a recap of the beautiful celebration!

We had to share these sun-kissed shots of Jamie and Jon tucked away in the trees and against the skyline at Montrose Harbor in Chicago. We can’t wait for their spring wedding next year at Lacuna Artist Lofts!

Steve and Vitaliy’s Chicago wedding featured their love for this city and it’s diverse neighborhoods. We started the day at their historic lakefront condo and nearby Montrose Harbor. They held their ceremony and brunch reception at Firehouse Chicago, an original Chicago firehouse turned into a venue. An urban planner and graphic designer, Vitaliy designed beautiful signage and decor throughout the event that had a unique Chicago style. The delicious brunch, provided by Fig Catering, represented food from several Chicago neighborhoods. Background music included classic female jazz singers to reflect a typical Sunday morning for the couple. Pollen Floral also participated in this beautiful wedding. Here are a few favorite shots!

We are very excited to share Hayley and Jake’s July wedding on the blog today! We began the day at the beautiful Drake Hotel downtown for getting ready photos and then headed to North Avenue Beach for bridal party photos. The ceremony was held on Northwestern’s campus at Alice Millar Chapel. The guests continued to Loyola’s campus for the reception. The outdoor cocktail hour was held on the patio of Piper Hall overlooking Lake Michigan. The reception took place next door at the Mundelein Center. It was a pleasure to work with some fantastic vendors for this event including Loreen from Clementine Custom Events, Nika Vaughan (hair/makeup), Lexoria Films, and Robert’s Floral Design. And there is no doubt our favorite wedding guest was Hayley and Jake’s son, Clark! Here are a few of our favorite photos from the day!

We had a beautiful summer day for Lauren and Jordan’s engagement session at the end of July! The session began at some of our favorite downtown locations, but we loved that they took us to Farmhouse Restaurant as well…the site of their first date! We also made a final stop in Wicker Park to take photos in their neighborhood. It goes without saying, we can’t wait for their December wedding at the Revolution Taproom!
