A Chicago Ravenswood Event Center Wedding with Kelsey and Dave

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Kelsey and Dave’s wedding is so incredibly refreshing and delightful.  I mean, one of their colors are Yellow- which I love!  They had a Ravenswood Event Center Wedding in Chicago, with their ceremony at St. Vincent DePaul Parish over on Sheffield.  Bear with me you guys, I have to post a gazillion photos from their wedding because it was hard to chose which wedding moments were my favorite.

Kelsey and Dave met while attending DePaul- Dave actually worked at Kelly’s Pub, which is conveniently across the street from their St. Vincent DePaul ceremony. Dave was the bar tender and door guy, and Kelsey was smitten (as Dave would like to put it). Kelsey likes to think of it in the sense that they simply met at DePaul’s School of Education where Kelsey attended classes and Dave was the TA.

Speaking of smitten, Kelsey’s dad was smitten when he saw all of the beautiful cars for Ravenswood Event Center Wedding walk-through.  That space was officially meant to be! And how could it not be?! Every floor is beautiful in it’s own right- cars, timber frames, floor to ceiling glass space? Heck yes!

Okay, I’ll stop babbling now so you guys can see their Ravenswood Event Center Wedding.  The ladies got ready at the Westin Chicago River North.

Kelsey and Dave’s neighborhood of Roscoe Village.  I didn’t know that this wonderful sign on the Metra existed until a month before their wedding when Kelsey asked if we can stop there on the way to their Ravenswood Event Center Wedding reception.Chicago wedding photo ravenswood event center loft photography vsco contax645 lifestyle photojournalist studio finch_0072 Chicago wedding photo
