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

Written by , Posted in Wedding

megan patrick blogpost-150-2
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 Surprise Chicago Proposal at Hotel Lincoln with Evan and Pamela

Written by , Posted in Proposal

Ah!  This day warms my heart (which is good- because it was cold out!)  Evan planned an amazing surprise Chicago Proposal at Hotel Lincoln on the rooftop.  The surprise was in three stages.  (I know right!) Ah! Okay, sorry- I’m calming down.  It just all worked out so perfectly. Since it was cold out, there were not as many people on Hotel Lincoln Chicago proposal on the rooftop, which meant that we had a run of the place.

We met with Evan before the proposal day, and he explained his 3 stage plan to us.  First, the proposal. Second- a surprise visit from both sets of parents.  And! You’ll have to scroll down and wait for the 3rd one. 🙂

First, let’s begin their Hotel Lincoln Chicago proposal surprise on the rooftop. The rooftop is called J Parker.  A bit of history- J Parker was the unreliable cop on duty the night that Lincoln was assassinated. Much of Hotel Lincoln’s naming schemes have a ton of history involved- which is super cool!  Okay, off of that tangent, and on to Evan and Pamela’s proposal!!!

Becky and Zack’s Sunrise Chicago Engagement Session

Written by , Posted in Engagement

Meet Becky and Zack. They were willing to wake up for a sunrise Chicago engagement session with us.  Crazy troopers, I tell you.

My eyeballs feel like burning needles when I wake up this early, but every time I get to witness the sunrise, I’m grateful for actually waking up.  It’s like you have the whole city to yourself for a sunrise Chicago engagement session.

Not to mention- Becky’s laugh is contagious.Chicago engagement photographer sunrise beach lifestyle photos wedding cityview lofts_0006These two lovelies are having their wedding festivities at the Cityview Loft here in Chicago. Though we wont be waking up early like for the sunrise Chicago engagement session, it’ll be amazing light no matter what at that venue. 🙂

Chicago Cafe Brauer Wedding with Erica and John

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Eeek! I’m so excited to show you guys Erica and John’s Cafe Brauer wedding!

 

It was our first wedding of the 2016 season. We couldn’t have started our Chicago wedding photography year with a nicer couple for their Cafe Brauer wedding. Erica and John were/are awesome! We ventured were outside in March for their photos and they were such troopers to brave the chilly weather right on Lake Michigan.  I’m glad that the bridesmaids had long dresses on – thanks Jenny Yoo! We were all filled with warm thoughts, good vibes, and love, which helped keep us all warm.

Erica and John had their wedding festivities at the historic Cafe Brauer in Lincoln Park. It is an amazingly beautiful space made by Perkins & Hamilton in a Prairie Style architecture. It is one of our favorite spots in the Chicago to photography.

Erica’s bouquet, the bridesmaid’s dresses, and all of the other details mimicked the lavender and prairie green in Cafe Brauer Wedding’s space. We started the day off at Hotel Lincoln– which is conveniently close, FILLED with Mid Century Modern furniture and amazing antiques, which are all locally sourced.  Anything mid-century modern and vintage warms my heart. We also took a trip to the roof to Hotel Lincoln’s – The J. Parker.

Checkout the photos from their big day below.

Embassy Suites Chicago Wedding – Melanie and Jon

Written by , Posted in Wedding

What an amazing day for photos – the Chicago light was just perfect

Chicago Wedding Photography Embassy Suites Photos Studio Finch_0001

Melanie and Jon had their ceremony at the Wicker Park Lutheran Church, which is just a short walk from our house. It rained in the beginning of Melanie and Jon’s wedding day, which actually worked out swimmingly for all of us.  Chicago seemed like it was glowing after their wedding ceremony in Wicker Park. Seriously though, glowing.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen the skyline look like that on a wedding day, it was beautiful.
Melanie got ready at Embassy Suites downtown before their ceremony, which was pretty convenient- as she and her guests staying at the hotel won’t really have much travel after the reception.
So, besides travel logistics, guys.  I have to say… I’m smitten with Melanie’s dress.  It was BEAUTIFUL.  And super well tailored.  The lace detail all over was so crazy gorgeous. And Melanie, of course, was stunning in it.
