Written by , Posted in Wedding

Rolling Hills, green grass and flowers – yes please!

We met Angela + Eric through Anna + Eui-Young, our couple who had the epic bubble send off last year. They are all a tight knit group of friends who go way back. Angela and Eric wanted a Royal Melbourne wedding, in Long Grove, which was close to their family’s church. The awesome thing about having a country club wedding in the middle of the summer is that you know it will have amazing lush green grass and rolling hills, and flowers and Oh! You’ll just have to see the photos.
They got ready at Hampton Inn, which was perfect logistic wise in getting to the Church and Country Club. Speaking of logistics-Angela had their honeymoon in the Cook Islands!!! Which was a convenient stop over to see Disney Land while they were in California on their way over to the tropics. It was quite fitting that Eric gave Angela a Mickey & Minnie Mouse card for her to read before their first look. And yes! Onto their Royal Melbourne wedding.

I started crying at this moment guys… and I never cry. Their beautiful family emotions as they hugged their parents and gave flowers with a moment of silence for Eric’s late father was beautiful.

Kitchen Chicago Wedding – Kailee and Mike

Written by , Posted in Wedding

elmhurst mansion chicago wedding photographer outdoor ceremony photography_0879

Kailee and Mike’s Kitchen Chicago Wedding at City View Loft was a day for the ages. Two words that describe their wedding day – beauty and style. And! Kailee wore an AMAZING Omelia BHLDN gown. The delicate lace detailing and unique shoulder draping is gorgeous. Polka dot tulle detailing is one of my favorite things.

Colorful perfection? Yes please! I am a huge fan of anything mint- from the shoes, shawl to the DIY hand-painted centerpieces.

Mike also brought along pizazz with his striped tie and dapper J. Crew suit.  Stylish montage? For sure. Not to mention, awesome dance party of a reception that even had Black Dog Gelato for desert. Tasty Deliciousness.
