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.

ArTango Wedding in Chicago with Voni and Clivens

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Two things we love: vivid colorful street art in Chicago and our lovely couples in front of it

ArTango Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0001

So, this morning Jason and I were talking about how cold it is and how awesome it was that a year ago, Voni and Clivens braved the very brisk January weather to do a Chicago Engagement session in the winter with us.  Seriously you guys- we talk about you all of the time. So I found it fitting to blog about their ArTango Wedding in Chicago today.

Voni and Clivens met online, but Clivens likes to tell people that they met at a bar. Haha, which is technically true- also, in that case- Jason and I met at a coffee shop diner. 🙂

Voni and Clivens both moved from their home states to Chicago. I’m from Michigan, so I know how that goes. But yes, on to their wedding!

They both got ready at The James Hotel- Clivens actually got ready in the library room, which I didn’t know existed- and that was a pretty awesome spacious location option for the guys to get ready.

Where is this mural? It’s at a fast food parking lot on the way to their ArTango Wedding.  I asked them if we could stop here because I was a bit smitten by it.

Spiaggia Chicago Wedding – Lily and John

Written by , Posted in Wedding

Lily and John wanted to have a destination wedding in Chicago.

Spiaggia Wedding Chicago Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0001

Since it’s a main hub, it makes it easier for family to be able to attend. They decided that a Spiaggia Chicago Wedding overlooking Lake Michigan was the perfect venue for them and family to be able to enjoy delicious food and to later get their groove on.
When we met Lily and John, they were in the midst of planning their move to Hawaii- cargo loading and all of that craziness, as John was going to be stationed there after his homecoming.

John and Lily got ready together in their hotel room- which I loved. It was so zen and calming in the room. I thought it was pretty awesome that they are getting ready together, I mean- if you’re marrying your best friend, it’s only right to get to spend the whole day with them right? And not to mention, their view was pretty awesome as well.

They eloped before John was deployed, so they decided to have a family blessing instead of a traditional ceremony for their Spiaggia Chicago Wedding.  You’ll be able to see it in the photos as both John and Lily’s dad’s performed the family blessing together.  It was quite sweet. <3

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.
