Anna and Eui-Young’s Chicago Hilton Doubletree Wedding

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Anna and Eui-Young have a fond love of games, or anything fun for that matter (except sushi for Anna, but she’ll stomach it for Eui-Young). Their amazingly fun Chicago Hilton Doubletree Wedding had all the bright pops of color you’d hope for. Anna even got colorful robes for all of her bridesmaids, and you know I love anything coordinated. ūüôā

The handy thing about having a wedding in Arlington Heights, is that you can find both nature and urban all in one place. ¬†So much so, that there are even ice cream trucks at the forest preserve! An ice cream truck wedding? perfect.And! The dancing was colorful as well, especially with Eui-Young’s special rendition of Gangnam Style, together with all of his groomsmen. ¬†Excellent moves gentlemen.
Hope that you two had an amazing honeymoon!!

Melissa and Matt had their wedding at Four Rivers Environmental Center. ¬†It was filled with gray and bright yellow DIY details, which Matt’s amazing cousin, Joanna, helped create for their big day.

Melissa’s¬†wedding was held on an absolutely gorgeous summer day in Channahon (about an hour SW of Chicago)¬†the sun shined in all its glory for such a special day. They were surrounded by nature, which is one of the main reasons why they chose the venue. ¬†Four Rivers Center is a peninsula literally intertwined within 4 winding rivers. ¬†Gotta love weddings in the midst of bright summer sunshine!

Milwaukee Villa Terrace Wedding – Lauren and Adam

Written by , Posted in Wedding

For Lauren and Adam it all fell perfectly into place.  The first time they met, their adventures and travels together, and their wedding date. Lauren and Adam had a Milwaukee Villa Terrace Wedding with the most amazing views. Their reception was just down the street at the Charles Allis Art Museum. Which!  meant for the perfect opportunity for a horse drawn carriage as transport.

Lauren and Adam lived long term long distance for 4 years! ¬†1,000 miles apart after initially meeting on a cruise. ¬†So the day Lauren moved to Wisconsin couldn’t come soon enough. ūüôā And the day was filled with amazing art, paper flowers, striped straws, and flavored root beer. ¬†Wonderful!

Check out the amazing view!

Chicago Wedding Photography- Bianca and Jonathan’s Wedding

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Bianca and Jonathan’s Chicago Wedding Photography was featured in the TCW magazine gave me an itch to post their amazing and fun wedding. ¬†Bianca filled the day with loads of surprises for Jonathan- from the vintage Rolex Watch, to the Brazilian Samba dancers at the Reception. They were a joy to be around and a joy to photography! What a fun bunch!

Bianca and her bridesmaids got ready at the same hotel as Jonathan, and they chose to do a first look- which allowed them for plenty of time to tour multiple spots in the city of Chicago for bunches of fantastic photo opportunities. ¬†Bianca’s brother found a purple mural of the city scape on the way into town, Michigan ave, North Avenue Beach and all around the art institute we went before zipping back to the ceremony- and onto the Samba dancing surprise! ¬†Amazing reception guys!!! Congrats!

Jen and Andy’s Lovely DIY Upcycled Vintage Chicago Wedding Photography

Written by , Posted in Vintage, Wedding

I am quite pleased to share Jen and Andy’s amazingly lovely Chicago wedding photography details on their big day. ¬†Everything from Jen’s ring to the place cards was either created herself, or a fantastic Etsy find. Or! From Andy’s childhood. The wedding itself was at Andy’s parents’ backyard, along with a stop at their family farm.

Jen’s cards and design skills? ¬†Why you can see them on her site here. And the lovely little flag cake topper? Why, adorning the most delicious vegan cake of course!

After the wedding, Jen and Andy set out on an antiquing road trip across the south- with some excellent photos and finds along the way.

Rocky the Best man?  Why of course!
