It’s hard to believe that James & Elizabeth’s beautifully emotional Bond Chapel wedding was one year ago yesterday! I hope this first year has been amazing and the rest are even so much more so. All my love you two. If you didn’t see their wedding last year, you can see the intimate Bond Chapel wedding here. They were also featured on the lovely wedding blog Borrowed & Blue! <3
I think I’ve said this for every anniversary post, but WOW! How has it already been a year?
To Sarah & Jeffrey, I hope this first year has been wonderful and I am so excited for all of your continued adventures.
For anyone who hasn’t seen Sarah & Jeffrey’s beautiful restaurant wedding at MK, you simply must go back and see it. Or check out their Wordless Wedding feature on A Practical Wedding. I can easily say that their wedding was a turning point for my work and discovering my style.I wish you two the happiest of anniversaries, and so much joy in the years to come!
When Heather inquired with me, it read “she’ll be in a short gold cocktail dress, and he’ll be in something that goes with his cowboy boots.” And folks, I was smitten right there from the start! Even before I knew her dress was from BHLDN (the most gorgeous place in the world) and even before I met her. But then we met, and rallied around finding sane people online (thank you APW & the Hairpin). And this last Thursday I had the absolute honor to photograph Heather & Tim’s marriage. Seriously, it was the sweetest celebration. We met at their apartment and walked to the beach. Their two brother’s officiated. We took a couple pictures, walked back to their apartment to pop champagne! And then snuck out for a few more pictures before dusk. Perfection. Okay I’ll stop talking now and just let you enjoy!
All my love to both of you! XXOO
Val & Theron were wed in a beautiful intimate ceremony at the stunning Hotel Monaco last weekend. You probably remember them from their epic engagement photos this spring ;-) I couldn’t begin to do their celebration justice with words, I hope I can take you their with these images. I just have to quickly thank the talented Jacqui Cole for second shooting! To Val & Theron, HUGE hugs to you two, it was an incredible honor to document your day!!
» Please listen to this fun song while you enjoy the images! «
and what would a wedding be without really fun food?! ;-) <3 cake pops!
I hope you’re having a rad honeymoon as you travel through Europe! I can’t wait to hear about all of your food adventures!! XXOO
Kris and Sabrina’s wedding encompasses SO many things that I love about my job. Picture this, an intimate restaurant wedding with 20 guests. Getting ready at a super modern, gorgeous hotel downtown, the James. Had their first look in the lobby with friends looking on. Bridal party pictures in the bar that looks like West Elm? Yes please.
Pre-ceremony cocktail hour with the bride and groom? You know I love it! Zed 451′s rooftop is simply too gorgeous.
Kris’ dad is a doctor. He hand wrote their card. Have you ever seen such beautiful script?!
The moms hugging each other kills me! So much joy.
Annnd the food. I don’t even know where to start! Literally every single dish was delicious. I love working with foodie couples SO much!
And to all a good night. XXOO
It was such a joy to be included in Kris & Sabrina’s intimate marriage celebration on Saturday! You may remember them from their fun foodie engagement pictures down at Union Station and Piece Pizza & Brewery. I don’t want to spoil all the fun, we’ll do a full wedding post soon…but I couldn’t start the week without sharing a couple of my favorites from this awesome restaurant wedding (have I talked enough about how much I love these sweet celebrations?!).
Ow ow! Sabrina is a super model and doesn’t eve know it. Happy honeymooning you two :-D
I have been holding my breath in anticipation and excitement to share this wedding! Surrounded by their closest friends and family, Philippe and Oriana were wed in the John Hancock Signature Room on the 95th floor looking out over Chicago. Oriana wanted it to be real vintage, and as such they both wore untouched vintage. I literally gasped when she opened her hotel room door in this gown. Please listen to Louis Armstrong’s La Vie En Rose (their first dance song) while you scroll through.
Welcome home from your honeymoon Philippe & Oriana!!
Phil Trocchio of All Events Entertainment kept everyone dancing the rest of the night!
All of my love to you two. Thank you so much for letting me capture your special day.
