Michol and Dan | Chicago Wedding

Where do I begin?? Mikie, you made such a beautiful bride. Every move you made created a beautiful image. Dan wasn't too shabby himself. =) It was such a pleasure photographing your wedding day. It was full of amazing people (some familiar!) and lots of love. We started our day at the Waldorf Astoria for the ladies and the Thompson Chicago for the gentlemen. Gorgeous backdrops for our getting ready portion of the day. As you can see, I have posted quite a few shots while Mikie was getting ready. The ceremony was at Holy Name Cathedral, and the reception at Saddle and Cycle Club. One of my favorite Chicago venues. The rain held out once again for me and we had a beautiful evening. AND! I had to post some dancing shots as Mikie's family threw one of the most amazing "Dollar Dances" I've ever witnessed. There were shots, and cupcakes, and napkins flying everywhere! It was amazing! Thank you so much again for having me. Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness.

So beautiful!

Sam and Daniela | Chicago Wedding

I have the best weddings. =) Another gorgeous wedding at the Saddle and Cycle Club in Chicago this past Saturday. I met Sam last year just days before he was moving to Chile to be with Daniela. They had both just graduated from college in NY - both fine art majors with Dani being a painter, and Sam sculpting. I had never even met Dani before the big day! She certainly didn't let me down. Such a beautiful girl with such perfect skin! The kindest, most easy going group. It was a pleasure. I wish you all my best in your new life together in Chile, and thank you for having me document such a wonderful day in your lives.

Kate and Aron | Chicago Wedding

Well, I woke up to a downpour Saturday morning. Not what a photographer wants to see on a wedding day. So I did a little rain dance on facebook. Ta-dah!! By the time Rio and I arrived down in Chicago, it had stopped. And didn't rain again until we were all cozy inside at the reception. Kate and Aron had such a beautiful wedding. The ladies had champaign colored dresses with coral flowers and the men wore navy.  They said their I Dos at St. Vincent DePaul and had a gorgeous reception at the Saddle and Cycle Club. Once of my favorite Chicago venues. And never had I seen a crowd rush the dance floor as soon as it opened. Amazing!

The home Kate and the ladies prepped in was amazing and had the most perfect chandelier for hanging Kate's dress.
