I met Stacey & Mike back in the fall to shoot their engagement session
, and we hit it off right away. With such a fun couple and the beautiful city as the background for their wedding celebration, I knew their wedding would be fantastic. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint!
With great anticipation, Stacey and her bridesmaids got ready in her highrise condo in River North, with a stunning view of the skyline just outside the window.
Love love love love the vintage style of Stacey’s dress!
I just adore this creamy-dreamy color palette.
The ceremony was held just walking distance away at Assumption Church.
The couple’s handwritten vows had me (and Stacey of course!) on the verge of tears.
After the ceremony we made a few stops around the museum campus for some photos. The weather threatened to force us inside, but once we stopped to get some photos by Buckingham Fountain, the skies began to clear and we were golden!
Last stop was Kinzie Street bridge. A great spot if you want Chicago architecture without the busy-ness of tourist downtown.
Last, but certainly not least, we headed to the stunning reception at the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza. One of my favorite venues downtown, really, with large windows overlooking the Chicago River, and beautifully clean, modern lines.
Stacey’s brother and sister-in-law sang “Unforgettable” as the couple shared their first dance.
Stacey and Mike, you two are the best. Your wedding was truly unforgettable! If you could hear how much I gushed about your wedding to my co-workers afterward you’d probably think I’m a weirdo. :-)
