colorful moonlight studios wedding

Margaret + Tito’s wedding at Moonlight Studios last winter was nothing short of an explosion of color, which as you know is our very favorite kind of explosion.

Margaret + Tito started their wedding day getting ready with friends and family before heading out to take some killer first look photos with Heather DeCamp Photography. Plenty of aunties were on hand to help get Margaret dressed. And I spy Ruk from Ruk + Matt’s wedding earlier in the year!

From there, they headed to Moonlight Studios for one of the most beautiful, colorful ceremonies possible celebrated by a Hindu priest and vows and rings presided by a friend of the couple. That was all before the party started and they did a quick change of outfit so they could dance the night away.

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.

a fun-filled ravenswood event center wedding

When we met Amy + John last summer, we knew we were going to love working with them. I mean… look at those photos… you can tell they are having a blast and loving every minute! That, plus, getting to work in one of our fave venues with some awesome vendors – we’re in!

Amy + John’s first apartment was right by the Ravenswood Event Center, so after getting ready, they started the day with first look in their old hood. We love the photos under the “L” and at their favorite brewery, Begyle Brewing Company.

Amy + John’s ceremony was stunning under the huge windows of the Ravenswood Event Center and complete with flowers and an arch covered in lush greens from our friends at Pollen.

After the ceremony, guests headed downstairs for cocktails, dinner and some serious dancing! It was Amy’s birthday, so John and One Night Band surprised her with a special tribute. It was definitely the best birthday ever!

a botanical-filled wedding at a new leaf

We just adored working on Steve + Amanda’s wedding last summer. One sweet couple plus one of our favorite venues equaled one perfect wedding despite the rainy day outside.

Steve + Amanda started the day getting ready at Hotel Lincoln across the street and took their first look photos on the hotel’s beautiful rooftop overlooking Lincoln Park. Being the troopers that they are, then they headed out in the rain for some beautiful pictures in the park. They say rain on your wedding day is good luck. We think that’s because it creates some seriously gorgeous pictures!

While Steve + Amanda were off in the park, we were busy getting all of their little details in place and everything else ready for them at A New Leaf.

One of our favorites, Anita Vaughan, officiated the couple’s sweet, sentimental and perfectly personalized ceremony before everyone headed back downstairs for dinner, drinks and dancing.

glamorous rookery building wedding

Nicole + Michael’s wedding last summer was nothing short of glamorous perfection.

chicago wedding planner

Nicole + Michael started the day getting ready and taking first look photos at the JW Marriott.It was one of those days in Chicago where she can’t decide what weather to stick with. It rained, it stopped, it thundered, then the sun shone. Their ceremony was supposed to be held at the Rose Garden at Buckingham fountain but with no shelter in sight, it was a risk. We waited until the very last minute to decide and finally called it and moved the ceremony to The Rookery. But when your “Plan B” looks like that, we’d say you’re winning.

It was elegant, classic and timeline. All of the gorgeous details made for a truly romantic setting for Nicole and Michael to start their marriage off right! A fabulous vendor team and a host of guests, who were ready to party!
