Kaylan and I have been in the equestrian world together for as long as I've been riding, so when she contacted me to photograph her wedding, I was thrilled! We began with getting ready shots at the Palmer House Hotel. They had a large suite that was perfect for the ladies prep. The ceremony was at Assumption Church. Gotta love those old ornate churches downtown. During the ceremony, a nasty storm rolled in. The stained glass windows darken and the lightning began. We were all a little worried for our photos afterwards. But it passed quickly and the sun came out. The storm actually left some really amazing clouds in the sky for our shots at Buckingham Fountain. We made a few stops around the city, and made our way to the Harold Washington Library for the reception. Such a cool venue. It's like being outside... but you're not! Ashley and I had a great time documenting your big day Kaylan and Rob! Thank you for having us! Event Planning by Wrap it Up.
What an amazing way to kick off 2015. This was seriously such a hard wedding to blog because there were so many great moments captured that in order to tell the whole story... well... it was impossible. I would have posted the entire wedding! This post still has a bazillion photos in it. I just couldn't help myself. Rio and I enjoyed working with Maggie and Kevin so much. And it was so great to see the Lenz family once again. We started off getting ready at the Hancock building on the 91st floor. Check out the view out their window! Gorgeous Lake Michigan. We had a quick first look before heading off to the ceremony. After the "I Do's" we had a plan of 4 stops around the city for photos. I thought, no way would we make it to all of them. With city traffic, it would be impossible. But we did it with time to spare!! The cold may have helped us speed things up a little. I'm so happy we got them all in. Every spot was amazing. Our last set of photos took place at the reception site, The Rookery. The most amazing staircase I've ever seen. The most beautiful photos of Maggie and Kevin on those stairs. Thank you so much Maggie and Kevin for sharing your special day with us. Have a great honeymoon!! xoxo!!
