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.
Candice and Bill were married in June 2014 at Hotel Monaco. The funniest thing happened at our final walk through, Bill looks at me and says: “I just have one more question: what happened when the hatch to the roof got thrown off of the apartment?” I had NO IDEA what he was talking about. It turns out that he was my landlord at my first apartment in Chicago and my jerk roommates broke a piece off of the roof (and then threw it off?!) He said I handled it well, and it’s a good reminder that this big city is really kind of small. And also that someday you might be planning your landlords wedding so you shouldn’t throw pieces of an apartment that doesn’t technically belong to you off your three-flat. He let us coordinate anyway and Laura killed it!READ MORE
Emily + Dan were married in October at one of my favorite hotels in the city: The Blackstone Hotel. There is so much character and jaw-dropping architecture in that one Michigan Avenue building. Doesn’t hurt to have the loveliest bride to casually perch on the sill of a stunning art deco window for a snap either!READ MORE
Eric + Mike were married at Public Chicago in Chicago in October. Full disclosure: Eric and Mike live in Omaha and own an amazing hair salon there. Eric has been my hair stylist since I was 15 years old. He loves to tell the story of me running into the salon after a soccer game with a towel twisting up my still wet hair an hour before the Homecoming dance. So obviously this man can work miracles. Which obviously this means I love him.
When they told me they were getting married in Chicago I insisted I would coordinate, mostly because I wanted to attend. I regret nothing. They flew 20 of their closest family and friends to Chicago and spent the weekend enjoying their company before getting hitched on Sunday. It was an exquisite event to say the least. Take a peek.
