Such a fun wedding to photograph for Kristi and Tony! A beautiful mix of downtown locations and intimate settings including Lincoln Park, photos near the Wrigley Building, and a beautiful reception at Salvatore’s Ristaurante – photographing probably the nicest couple you will ever meet. It all came together with a surprise monster mash ending! Congratulations Kristi and Tony!
What do you get when two engineers fall in love? A perfectly planned wedding! That is how Shirley and Justin’s wedding in downtown Chicago at the Congress Hotel was – perfect! The Congress Hotel was amazing inside, with the views, the ceremony hall, and the reception in the “Gold Room”. It was a bit like stepping back in time to the era of ball gowns and masquerade parties. We made several stops throughout the day. Between Olive Park beach by Navy Pier, Buckingham Fountain, and the Chicago Riverwalk, my favorite was the beach. If not only for the fact that literally thousands of onlookers were cheering and congratulating Shirley and Justin the whole time!
The day was so much fun, beautiful, and elegant, I am so pleased to have been a part of this amazing special day. Congratulations Shirley and Justin!
How do I describe the GORGEOUS wedding Avery and Chris put on at the beautiful George Williams College in Lake Geneva? The day was perfect, bright, sunny, and with a nice breeze. Being surrounded by professional singers and opera professionals at every turn. Stunning decorations throughout. Did I mention everyone was a professional singer?
Sometimes, as a photographer when you walk onto a venue you realize that you hit the lottery. This was one of those times.
Thank you Avery and Chris for letting me a part of your amazing day! I think the DJ and I are still a bit teary eyed from the beautiful toasts during the reception!
