The Rookery Wedding Chicago- Jane & John

Written by , Posted in Wedding

The Rookery was the perfect location for their around the world bash.

Jane and John planned their wedding all of the way from Australia, across the globe. Jane is originally from Chicagoland, and John is from Ireland. Which, made it pretty perfect to have the most ultimate wedding cake EVER.  Ultimate? Yes.  Just scroll down and you will see the amazingness below. Well, ok- I’ll tell you, Jane’s mom ordered a Globe Shaped wedding cake.  Yes! Imagine a cake shaped like the world.  It had the Bean on top, and fondant designed homes and buildings near and dear to Jane and John’s hearts. Gah, it was amazing!  Along with all of the other details Jane planned for- giant wedding balloons, stopping by an Irish Pub on their wedding day for John, embroidering their wedding date onto her dress, and so much more.

Okay, you can see The Rookery Wedding for yourself. But- to start off, Jane got ready at her parent’s house. They also had their ceremony at Holy Family Chicago – my favorite Cathedral in Chicago, and we happily had the opportunity to photograph many weddings there this year.  Plus, everyone there is super nice, and I’m a fan of super nice. 🙂

So it was a super hot summer day during their ceremony- for which they had the fans blowing inside the church. I’m a fan of Jane’s veil blowing in the breeze down the aisle. <3The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0017 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0018 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0019 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0020 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0021 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0022 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0023 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0024 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0025 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0026 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0027 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0028 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0029 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0030 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0031 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0032 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0033 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0034 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0035

The Rookery is such an amazing historical building. It was designed by Burnhan and Root in 1888, and the lobby was remodeled by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1905- which is all of the amazingness you can see in the photo below.

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.

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

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.
