Weddings and beer…two of our favorite things mixed together made for an excellent wedding show, Wedtoberfest! The event was held at Artifact Events in the Ravenswood District of Chicago. We were honored to be selected to be a part of the show curated by founders of Naturally Yours Events and Indiewed. Here are a few images that captured this fun fall event!

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 so thrilled to share Alissa and Kevin’s wedding photos on the blog today! We met up at the Westin Chicago while they got ready for the big day and headed throughout the city for some photos with their wedding party. The ceremony took place at the historic St. James Chapel in the Archbishop Quigley Center. Our favorite part of the day was the post-ceremony brass band that led the wedding party and guests to the reception just a few blocks away at Spiaggia. The evening ended with a fantastic meal and dance party by DJ Chris Mix of Scratch Weddings/Cage and Aquarium. Here are a few of our 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!
