Spiaggia Chicago Wedding – Lily and John

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Lily and John wanted to have a destination wedding in Chicago.

Since it’s a main hub, it makes it easier for family to be able to attend. They decided that a Spiaggia Chicago Wedding overlooking Lake Michigan was the perfect venue for them and family to be able to enjoy delicious food and to later get their groove on.
When we met Lily and John, they were in the midst of planning their move to Hawaii- cargo loading and all of that craziness, as John was going to be stationed there after his homecoming.

John and Lily got ready together in their hotel room- which I loved. It was so zen and calming in the room. I thought it was pretty awesome that they are getting ready together, I mean- if you’re marrying your best friend, it’s only right to get to spend the whole day with them right? And not to mention, their view was pretty awesome as well.

They eloped before John was deployed, so they decided to have a family blessing instead of a traditional ceremony for their Spiaggia Chicago Wedding.  You’ll be able to see it in the photos as both John and Lily’s dad’s performed the family blessing together.  It was quite sweet. <3

Royal Melbourne Country Club Wedding in Long Grove with Angela and Eric

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Rolling Hills, green grass and flowers – yes please!

Royal Melbourne Chicago Wedding Photographer Long Grove Editorial Photography Studio Finch_0000

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.

Lacuna Artist Loft Wedding with Jamila and Andrei in Chicago

Written by , Posted in Wedding

It was such a joy to photograph Jamila and Andrei’s Lacuna Artist Loft wedding

The best room to have your portraits taken ever!

Jamila!!  You might recognize her- she was the awesome makeup artist who did Danley’s makeup when she got married a few years ago. Now it’s Jamila’s turn, and she had to get her own makeup artist. No one actually believed that she was going to hire a makeup artist- but! photos are proof, indeed she did. Andrei and Jamila picked Lacuna Artist Loft Wedding venue because Hebru used to use it as his main artist space.  I’ve known Hebru and his work for years thanks to my old roommate Niki. He does pretty amazing stuff- check out his website!

Anyway, it ended up raining on Jamila and Andrei’s wedding day, like a crazy rain. Thankfully, it only lasted for about 30 minutes, so everyone was still able to enjoy the amazing rooftop wedding celebration at Lacuna Artist Loft’s roof- filled with a view of the Chicago skyline.

The Chicago Library is all fuzzy in the background behind the rain drops.  Okay- so maybe it rained more than 30 minutes… but thankfully it was all gone by the time the cocktail hour was over.

A Room 1520 Wedding in Chicago with Sara and Mark Day 2

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Ah, I’ve been excited to blog about Sara and Mark’s wedding for a long time.  It was a Room 1520 wedding filled with the most amazing food and people!  Not to forget, the most adorable little ham of a ring bearer who stole the show. We had the opportunity to work with the amazing Sweetchic Events, Vale of Enna and the delicious Blu Plate Catering. The team made every detail so photogenic, I couldn’t stand it!  Okay, so here is all of the amazingness:

Sara got ready at Aloft Hotel Chicago City Center, which was a pretty convenient location (not to mention, I was a big fan of their blue carpet in the rooms.)

Chicago Bridgeport Art Center Skyline Loft Wedding- Jenna and Jim

Written by , Posted in Wedding

There is so much fun amazingness to show for Jenna and Jim’s Chicago Wedding that I can’t even handle it! Ok, so here it goes…

Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0001

Jenna and Jim planned their wedding from afar- having a long distance relationship, this was no sweat for them.  We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to photograph their engagement session in New York City’s Gramercy Park last summer. (No fence jumping needed) Since living and working on the East Coast, Jenna and Jim moved to Germany together to follow Jim’s career in the Air Force. Which I say is pretty perfect, since Jenna’s dream would be to travel to unique and amazing places all over the world- what better than marrying a pilot?

They decided to have their wedding at Chicago’s Bridgeport Art Center Skyline Loft wedding, which was large enough to house all of their amazing family and friends. Also, just as important- it is large enough to hold a late night pasty food truck. Talk about awesome.  Before their cocktail hour and reception, they got married at the beautiful Holy Family Catholic Church on Roosevelt and spent some time going around the city with their decked out navy blue wedding party.

Oh! And check out Jenna and Jim’s decor choices!  They had friends trade place cards with Polaroid photos of the guests. Also, a huge thank you to Liven it Up Events for making the schedule and decor flow as smooth as possible. <3

We took photos on the football field at St. Ignatius (which is right next to Holy Family Catholic Church). The field is named after Jim’s Uncle, who was a proud Wolfpack coach in his prime.Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0021 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0022 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0023 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0024 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0025 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0026 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0027 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0028 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0029 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0030 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0031 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0032 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0033 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0034 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0035 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0036 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0037 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0038 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0039 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0040 Chicago Wedding Photographer Bridgeport Art Gallery Wedding Photography Studio Finch Best_0041
