classic downtown wedding at howells & hood

Angeline + Roman no longer live in Chicago, so for their wedding they wanted a classic Chicago experience where their guests could enjoy the best the city has to offer. With a ceremony at Holy Family Church and reception at Howells & Hood in the Tribune Building, their wedding delivered just that!

Angeline + Roman got ready just over the river from their reception venue at the Hyatt Regency Chicago before heading out to take a few photos around downtown. We love that Taz Luto from Heather DeCamp Photography did such a great job of capturing their laughs in these photos! Angeline + Roman were having a blast and it shows!

After photos, Angeline + Roman headed to the stunning Holy Family Church for their ceremony. It is truly a classic with architecture utterly to die for.

Following the ceremony, everyone headed to Howells & Hood in the Chicago Tribune building for cocktails, dinner and dancing into the night in the center of it all on Michigan Avenue.

stunningly glamorous northerly island wedding

Go big or go home, right? Well, Liz + Mick definitely didn’t go home for their wedding last October. Hundreds of balloons, twenty-foot live trees and a bagpiper — and that was just the ceremony! Just wait till you see this one. It will blow your mind!

Liz + Mick started their day getting ready at home surrounded by family and friends. Photographer extraordinaire Andria Lindquist captured each moment beautifully and then took some amazing first look shots on the rooftop of the couple’s Lincoln Park apartment. We just love that they thought of every little detail down to personal notes and gifts to each other that we’re sure will be family heirlooms one day.

From there, Liz + Mick headed to Covenent Presbyterian Church in Bucktown for one of the most beautiful ceremonies we’ve seen in a long time. With 20-foot live trees lining the aisle and a bagpiper leading the couple out of the church, this ceremony was definitely one the guests will never forget.

From the church, the couple followed photographers (Andria Lindquist Photography) and videographers (Orange Wedding Films) for some more amazing shots on the lakefront before heading to Northerly Island for a bang-up reception. You would never know from these gorgeous shots that it was freezing with gale force winds outside. Inside the tent was draped in ivory, lush greens lined the tables and chandeliers sparkled while the couple and their friends danced the night away.

casually elegant ovation chicago wedding

Last August, we had the pleasure of working with Jane + Chris on their wedding at one of our favorite new venues, Ovation Chicago. Chris was a groomsman in one of 2013 weddings (and one of the most helpful groomsmen we’ve ever met), so we were thrilled to team up with him again and meet his beautiful bride, Jane, who we adored just as much.

Jane + Chris started their day getting ready at The Drake before headed across the street for first look photos in the gardens.

It was a beautiful day for their ceremony and reception at Ovation Chicago and we were thrilled to work with some of our favorite vendors to make their day absolutely perfect. Plus, we love any wedding that ends with a tamale truck!

glamorous millennium knickerbocker hotel wedding

Aileen + Ed’s fall wedding at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel was everything a glamorous Chicago wedding should be. It was full of beautiful details, heartfelt moments, and some serious laughs. We absolutely adore Aileen + Ed, who have since started their own photography business and are taking the wedding industry by storm! These two are unstoppable.

Aileen + Ed are high school sweethearts, so this day was a long time in the making. You can tell Aileen put a lot of thought into everything, right down to those unbelievable shoes.

After some fun first look photos at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel, Aileen + Ed headed out to capture their day at some of Chicago’s most iconic locations. A little rain didn’t stop this pair – they just added some adorable Burberry umbrellas and kept the party going!

Glam doesn’t even begin to describe their venue – wow. Any decor you add to this space can seem minuscule in comparison, but Aileen + Ed did it right with a stunning backdrop, sky-high florals, opulent candelabras, and even a light-up dance floor!
