Hyatt Lodge at Mcdonald’s Campus Wedding with Megan and Patrick

Written by , Posted in Wedding

And blogpost season begins!!!  I’ve been in the midst of working on Megan and Patrick’s album, so I couldn’t help but share some photos online from their awesome sauce wedding.  Megan and Patrick had a Hyatt Lodge at Mcdonald’s Campus wedding in Oakbrook. The scenery, guests, weather, details, overall vibe, and everything was picture perfect (zing!) And I was really digging Megan’s florals and bouquet- created by Ipomea Floral Design.

Before Megan and Patrick’s Hyatt Lodge at McDonald’s Campus wedding, the guys got ready at the hotel and Megan and her ladies got ready at Megan’s parents’ house, which was also the location of their post Chicago wedding ceremony/pre cocktail hour VIP cocktail hour. 😀

Oh oh! And they also had Irish Dancers from the school Megan and her friends danced at.  It was amazing to watch! I included some of those photos after the cocktail hour.

Ok, anyway- enough of my babbles. You can scroll and check out the loveliness that is Megan and Patrick’s Hyatt Lodge at Mcdonald’s Campus Wedding for yourselves.

A Beachside Lake Michigan Wedding Photography – Tammy and Chris

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Lake Michigan Wedding Love Kiss Studio FinchBeing a Michigan native, when Tammy inquired with us that she was having her wedding on Lake Michigan and getting ready at her parent’s blueberry farm, I immediately gushed for joy.
Tammy and Chris live in Chicago, so we opted for the city (Chris’ motorcycle and all) for the engagement session, and basked in the beautiful nature surrounding us for their wedding photography in Michigan. Seriously. It was a gorgeously sunny day for Michigan wedding photography. From jars of blueberry jam to colorful lake-shore sunsets and beach-side fire pits, it couldn’t have been anymore perfect of a wedding day for Tammy and Chris.

BHLDN Chicago’s First Birthday Soiree

Written by , Posted in Event

 

2013-02-09_001

An amazing event for a first birthday at BHLDN Chicago created by So Dressed Up, with floral arrangements by Pistil and Vine. I had the opportunity to go with Ela and my dear friend Natasha- who is an amazing DIY decorator for weddings and events alike. We were blown away by all of the detail and decor. Teacups, and golden milky flowers everywhere! Be sure to check out their redecorated space if you have chance. Happy Birthday!
