Brooke and Nate Brookfield Zoo Wedding

Brooke and Nate had a lovely wedding at the Brookfield Zoo earlier this fall. The ceremony was held at St Francis Xavier in La Grange. From there we headed to the Zoo for pictures and the reception. We had so much fun feeding the giraffes and watching the dolphins. Thanks guys for letting us be part of your day!

Laura and Mark's Uniquely Awesome Wedding Day

Laura and Mark knew they wanted to do things a little differently. They decided early on that they were going to have an intimate ceremony and lunch with close family and friends before heading to a cocktail reception with the rest of their crew. They saw each other for the first time at Villa D'Citta before heading up to the Waterfront Café for their perfect small ceremony. Then the couple snuck off for a private glass of champagne at one of their favorite restaurants; Vera. From there it was a short walk (with plenty of pictures) to The Centered Chef; one of Chicago's newest (and coolest) venues. Custom cocktails and small bites mixed with classic party rap made this wedding one of the most unique and awesome ones we've had the pleasure of shooting. Congratulations to Laura and Mark!

Erin & Masato Historic Rookery Wedding

We still can't get over how stunning with wedding is! Erin and Masato got ready at the JW Marriott. Which, by the way has gorgeous bathrooms. From there we went to a few of our favorite spots downtown for pictures. Then it was off to the Rookery for the wedding! The Rookery Building is arguably the prettiest building in Chicago, perfect for a intimate wedding in the heart of downtown. Both ceremony and reception were held in the great hall. Transformers 4; which has been filming in Chicago this summer and fall, had a set right outside the Rookery. So we took advantage of the scene and made a few pictures. At the end of the evening, Erin and Masato exited the reception through a tunnel of sparklers! Congrats guys!

Heather and Matt's Surprise Wedding!

We love surprises! We love surprise weddings even more! Heather and Matt convinced all their friends and family that they'd eloped. That the party at they were all attending was just a post wedding celebration. It was all a ruse! 

Heather and Matt were so amazing to work with! They saw each other for the first time at the South Garden of the Art Institute. For there it was off to the west loop for pictures! 

Once we arrived at Old Oak Tap, a video by Heather and Matt, let everyone know what was up. Heather's brother was asked to marry them. Matt's daughter walked her dad down the aisle, there was not a dry eye in the house. As the light faded, the party started! Thanks Heather and Matt for letting us be part of your story!
