Chicago is chalked full of amazing venues and we were so incredibly excited when Brandy + Brian told us that they would be tying the knot at the luxe Langham Hotel. Their early Fall color palette of white, blush and maroon was the perfect accompaniment to the greenery and pops of gold throughout the day. This gorgeous bride and her handsome groom signed their ketubah before making it offical under the chuppah in front of their closest friends and family. We especially loved how warm and intimate the candle-lit Langham hotel ballroom felt as the sun began to set. Guests were all invited to take part in a crazy awesome hora and sweet treats after Brandy + Brian’s sweet first dance. We loved this special day and we hope you do too!

To say that Christina + Charlie had the best first date on the planet is almost an understatement. What started as just dinner at Blackbird, quickly turned into drinks at Au Cheval and then an all out dance party at the Hangge Uppe. If you’ve met these two, you can understand how their personalites mesh so seamlessly. This lighthearted pair is always down for a riveting game of Bananagrams or a romantic dinner at Topo Gigio and those are just a two of the many reasons we can’t wait to shoot their Discovery World wedding in Milwaukee next Summer!

The cute pair you see below is currently living a few hundred miles apart, and with their December 2017 wedding plans underway we’re happy to give Lauren + Ken any reason to reunite if even for a brief, but perfect afternoon. Lauren + Ken’s first date at La Gondola went off without a hitch and these two have since grown to love cooking together, traveling as a party of 2, and joining their friends for an always welcome get together. These two will be tying the knot at the Union League Club of Chicago and we’re excited to see what these sports-loving fans have up their sleeve for the big day!

The dynamic duo you see below just happens to be one of the coolest and sweetest soon to be married couples you’ve ever met. Katie + Kevin live just a hop, skip, and jump from the beautiful Lincoln Park locations in their engagement photos and we’re such huge fans of incorporating your neighborhood into your portrait session. There’s a good chance you won’t live there forever and we always think it’s fun to traipse around the area you love to call home. Their May wedding will be at the iconic Hilton hotel on Michigan ave and we know that this laid back, super cool pair is working on a few weddings details that are just as fun as they are elegant!
