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

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.

Elmhurst Wilder Mansion Wedding- Alicia and Lukasz

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Alicia and Lukasz’s Elmhurst Wilder Mansion wedding day couldn’t have been more beautiful! Everyone knows I’m a huge fan out rustic outdoor ceremonies, and they couldn’t have picked a better location. They had their outdoor ceremony at the Churchill Woods complete with vintage wooden doors for Alicia’s grand entrance.

Alicia and Lukasz have had a relationship since middle school. These two have known each other since they were little kids. Their bond is amazing and sincere, and everyone who has ever met Alicia and Lukasz would tell you that their souls are bonded deep.  Gah, I just about cried at the ceremony myself. We felt so honored to photograph these two on their stunning day. elmhurst mansion chicago wedding photographer outdoor ceremony photography_0001 elmhurst mansion chicago wedding photographer outdoor ceremony photography_0002

Woodwalk Gallery Door County Wedding – Carrie and Ted

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Door County Wedding Photography_0001

 

 

Woodwalk Gallery in Door County Wisconsin is probably one of my favorite wedding venues ever. The owners were so incredibly sweet- and also doubled as officiant/gallery coordinator. Carrie is originally from Iowa, and Ted is from New England- they both wanted to have their wedding in a place which is special to both of them. Conveniently, they both used to vacation in Door County’s Egg Harbor when they were kids.  Boom- perfect wedding location set – Woodwalk Gallery in Door County!
Carrie made the most ultimate DIY extravaganza- from vintage cans, to wooden signs all matching the checkered cherry pie red they wanted for their wedding.  It was some of the most amazing DIY wedding details ever, paired with babies breath balls and a custom pie topper. Carrie and Ted actually drove all of their decor to Door County from Brooklyn, which is a pretty amazing roadtrip on it’s own.
Okay, I’ve babbled on for too long- check it out for yourself!Door County Wedding Photography_0002
