Antonia & Rene's Bridgeport Art Center Fiesta

 What an amazing wedding Toni and Rene had!  From the Mariachi band serenading the couple throughout the night to the traditional spanish dancers performing, it was a true Mexican fiesta.  Both of them being from the south side of Chicago, we had the pleasure to shoot Toni and Rene and their close family at Osaka Garden, 31st beach and U.S. Cellular field before heading to the Bridgeport art center to party the night away.

Justin & Kim's St Joseph Wedding

Kim and Justin knew they wanted to do something different for their wedding. They decided to have a 'destination' wedding, but only about 100 miles from Chicago in St. Joseph Michigan. They saw each other for the first time and then it was off to the lake for fun pictures with their wedding party. After pictures, they tied the knot at the Shadowland Pavilion before heading back to the Shadowland Ballroom for an excellent party. Guests were treated to rides on the carousel which was a huge hit, tasty blueberry cocktails and awesome tunes. At dusk Kim and Justin lit off a couple Chinese Sky Lanterns for good luck. It definitely worked for the pictures! Take a look at some of our favorites from the day!

Sandy & Mike

Sandy and Mike are one cool couple. Married on the Saturday of Lollapalooza, they had a very musical wedding. The ceremony was held at Old St Pat's and was conducted by the same priest who married Mike's parents. Mike's cousin, Gina Glocksen, sang Ave Maria during mass. From there we were off to Wicker Park for a few pictures at Sandy and Mike's favorite restaurant, Big Star. After a quick stop at North Ave Beach, we headed to Salvatore's in Lincoln Park for the reception. As the light began to fade, Gina and her band picked up their instruments and played like they were on the main stage in Grant Park! Congrats to Mike and Sandy! And thanks for letting us be part of your amazing day!
