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.

We met Cherita and Zeus initially a few weeks ago and they wanted to get their Chicago Lincoln Park Engagement Photography session finished straight away so that they can make their save the dates. I am so happy the weather cooperated with amazing vibrant ombré hues of a sunset.
Before heading around town, we met them at Atomix Cafe, in Ukrainian Village for a few shots at a coffee shop, astronaut mural included. Thank you Atomix for letting us take a few photos at your awesome coffee shop space.
Cherita and Jesus’ wedding is going to be AMAZING! A blend of Mexican and Indian cultures, from henna to a mariachi band. I cannot wait for their festivities and to see which family traditions they will put together. Eeek! Okay, onto the ombré hued amazingness.
My favorite set- these two horizontal bits of loveliness. Cheri, your eyes are mesmerizing.
Ahh, Cantigny Park- you’re so picturesque I want to paint you! (Or at least have a gazillion more engagement sessions here)
Angela and Eric are getting married tomorrow! So naturally, I have to show these two lovelies off for their Cantigny Park engagement photography session. I am so excited that Angela chose Cantigny Park for the first half of her engagement session. It’s located in Wheaton, IL which is close to both of their respective hometowns in the Chicago Suburbs. And the pops of florals along with Angela’s dresses are perfect. Angela wanted to have a taste of home along with a nod to Chicago itself for added variety and awesomeness.
Angela and Eric are getting married tomorrow at The Royal Melborne Country Club in Long Grove. Ahh Mature luscious trees are the best! Now, onto their Cantigny Park Engagement session. Can’t wait for tomorrow!
A nod to Chicago and a Cantigny Park engagement session, it doesn’t get better than that!
Jane and John had their Chicago engagement session with us shortly after arriving in town from Australia, where they live. It was an around the world affair for them as John is originally from Ireland and Jane from Chicago. They met while both working abroad in Australia and never looked back.
They held their festivities at the Rookery later that week, as well as in Ireland later- finishing off their around the world tickets to Japan before heading home to the amazing down under in Australia.
And the details! THE CAKE!!!!! Holy tomatoes, I can’t wait to show you all of the crazy epic details (balloons! Giant confetti balloons!) from their wedding day.
It was awesome having a chance to step outside of the world of Skype and meet John in person for the first time at this engagement session.
