Weddings

Wedding :: Kailey + Mo [Milwaukee Art Museum]

Wedding :: Kailey + Mo [Milwaukee Art Museum]

These two! I worked with Mo directly and indirectly with Kailey and was so honored when they asked me to photograph their wedding at the Milwaukee Art Museum. What I love about Kailey and Mo is the overwhelming amounts of kindness and love they bring to each day. The day of their wedding, it was obvious that this kindness and love radiated everywhere from family to friends. 

The Milwaukee Art Museum is an architecturally amazing backdrop for a wedding. The crisp lines, the white whites, the airy feeling, and the overflowing happiness. It was such a beautiful late spring wedding celebrating the marriage of Kailey + Mo. 

Talk a walk through this special day with the images below. [See their Chicago engagement session last fall here.]

Wedding :: Cristina + Justin [St Clements, Floating World Gallery; Chicago]

Wedding :: Cristina + Justin [St Clements, Floating World Gallery; Chicago]

November weddings!!! This was my last wedding of the season and couldn't have ended on a better note. Cristina and Justin got married in Lincoln Park's St. Clements Church and celebrated at Floating World Gallery. Every detail was gorgeous - from dresses to table settings, but it was family and friends coming from near and far [Mexico and Tennessee!] that made this day even more beautiful. Cristina and Justin had one of the best November days you could ask for in Chicago.

So happy to be able to capture this day for these two super cool people.

Wedding :: Liz + John [Christ Church of Oak Brook; Hyatt, Oak Brook]

Wedding :: Liz + John [Christ Church of Oak Brook; Hyatt, Oak Brook]

Their dads met long before this wedding day. After meeting years ago at dads day at the University of Illinois, Elizabeth and John finally began dating after both of their dads, separately, mentioned how they should date the other. Dads may know best, and in this case, they sure did. After marrying at Christ Church of Oak Brook, Elizabeth and John took to the Hyatt Lodge on McDonald's campus to celebrate their new life together. 

Wedding :: Colette + Arnold [St Vincent Ferrer; Salvatore's, Chicago]

Wedding :: Colette + Arnold [St Vincent Ferrer; Salvatore's, Chicago]

Early September weddings are perfect. You start to anticipate fall and fall colors, the weather is generally more mild, and it feels like football and back to school. I met Colette last summer at Katie and Paul's wedding and I was so excited to be able to capture Colette and Arnold's wedding day.

Wedding :: Cara + Alain [Belle Mer, Newport, RI]

Wedding :: Cara + Alain [Belle Mer, Newport, RI]

After being a little backlogged, I've finally finished the editing of Cara and Alain's New England wedding. And I have to say, I loved every minute looking back through these images. 

New England, what a gorgeous and charming place to visit. The sailboats, the lobster rolls, the salty air. To kick off the festivities of this destination wedding, Cara and Alain hosted a welcome party at Midtown Oyster Bar, right on the coast of Newport. 

The following day, Cara and Alain got married in Newport, Rhode Island's Belle Mer on Goat Island. The New England backdrop was a stunner for these two beautiful people. Love couldn't have a more perfect day.

Check out some of the images from both the welcome party and the wedding day!

Wedding :: Jacqueline + Matt [Prairie Productions, Chicago]

Wedding :: Jacqueline + Matt [Prairie Productions, Chicago]

Summer weddings in Chicago. You take a gamble on weather, but when you win, you win big. With close family and friends, and a beautiful and intimate courtyard ceremony with perfect balance of rustic and pretty details, Jacqueline and Matt tied the knot at the west loop's Prairie Production.

Simply beautiful and full of love.

Wedding :: Amanda + Joe [Pazzo's, Chicago]

Wedding :: Amanda + Joe [Pazzo's, Chicago]

Amanda and Joe left Illinois for San Francisco when work called. Turns out, they actually met at work, working for corporate Jimmy John's [we also took a quick fun frame at the JJ's Joe opened downtown on Michigan Ave]. For their wedding nuptials, they flew back to their home state for an intimate ceremony and celebration at Pazzo's at 311. Such a grand atrium set the backdrop for the ceremony. Despite this day being borderline freezing, Amanda and Joe were surrounded by close family and friends to make this an epic Chicago 'spring' day. Check out some of the frames from the wedding.
