Not everyone can pull off a crazy beautiful wedding reception when the setting is where they went to high school- but then again, not everyone went to high school in an epic Harry Potter/Hogwarts/Marble Epicness/ landscape of amazment/jaw droppingly beautiful bit of architecture. Phew. Yes- but Carlee did go to school on a beautiful Chicago campus. So hence, why Carlee and Jeff decided to have a St Ignatius Wedding, at St. Ignatius’ Tully Hall in Chicago. Keep scrolling for beautiful green goodness.
Carlee and Jeff had their wedding ceremony at St. Daniel the Prophet, officiated by a family friend. But now, onto everyone getting ready at the Hilton downtown- conveniently located next to a wonderful colorful tiled wall. 😉 Oh, and conviniently across the street from Michigan Ave is the park. Perfect location indeed!
Ok, so there maybe a lot of photos of Carlee smiling from ear to ear- but that’s only because I’m kind of obsessed with her beautiful smile, oh- and it’s their wedding day, so smiles be had!
Oh yes, the St. Ignatius Chicago Wedding was inside the building’s Tully Hall. Sorry, I’m always bad with multiple names.
Eeek! Thank you to Foxglove Studio for making these amazing arrangements!
A huge thank you to all of the vendors who made Carlee and Jeff’s amazing St. Ignatius Wedding day possible!

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.
Eeek! Kailee, your ring is beautiful.
Cocktails inspired by their kitties?! YES! Best mixology inspiring wedding idea yet. Not to mention that Buzz is the most photogenic kitty ever. (and he knows it)
I am IN LOVE and absolutely swooning over Kailee’s centerpieces. They were hand painted by her and her friends before the wedding.

Eeeek! Emily! I spy an amazing Anthropologie dress on this beautiful lady. These two blue eyed lovelies picked the perfect outfits to compliment their dreamy eyes.
Emily and Aaron are having their wedding at Revolution Brewery this fall. It will be filled with delicious beer, sausage h’orderves and cozy goodness. For their Cityscape Chicago Engagement Session, we spent the afternoon around North Avenue beach before heading down to Pilsen for a few more colorful locations the match Emily’s beautiful dress.
Can’t wait for you guys’ wedding this fall!!
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.
A touch of blush whimsey on Alicia’s Maggie Sottero dress is to die for. Putting the finishing touches on his vows.
The color pairings Alicia envisioned are amazing! Some of you who have met me have heard me go on and on about my new fondness over the color purple- It photographs so well with the florals from Ipomea Floral. Sheila, the owner and florist extraordinaire does an amazing job.
A huge thank you to all of these amazing vendors and fashion touches.
First off, Emily has some killer taste in clothes, which made their Venice beach engagement photography session all the more awesome. And we asked the owners of this garage to paint it to match their outfits. (Of course!) I am a HUGE fan of Venice Beach and the Venice Canals. There are SO many photo op spots around every nook and cranny. Gah, I could just stay in the sunny sunshine of LA forever. Indeed, remember it was January and I’m not really a winter person. Brrr.
While we were strolling around Abbott Kinney Blvd, our Venice Beach engagement photography session was also interrupted with the crazy clicks of paparazzi (Yup, they too, couldn’t handle Emily’s gorgeousness) It was actually just Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer getting bombarded by paparazzi while doing their weekend shopping.
Emily and Ben are having their wedding this summer at The Redfield Estate near where Emily grew up.
