Chicago Wedding Photography: Mary Sue+Dan

Mary Sue + Dan's stunning Chicago Wedding was definitely one for the books!  After getting ready at her parents' house, Mary Sue walked down the aisle at Evergreen Park's Most Holy Redeemer Church towards her beaming Groom, Dan.  The reception at Bridgeport Art Center's Skyline Loft was bright, classic, and elegant.  We loved all the textures and details that filled each aspect of the day.  This gorgeous couple just celebrated their one-year anniversary, and we couldn't be happier for them!  Congratulations Mary Sue+Dan!

Chicago Wedding Photography: Cathriona+Dan

Cathriona + Dan lucked out with unusually warm weather for their November wedding!

The happy couple took advantage of the gorgeous day with a rooftop first look and plenty of outdoor photos before the ceremony

at St. Mary of the Angels Church in Bucktown.  Afterward, they celebrated with friends and family at the fabulous reception at Ovation.

Congratulations Cathriona+Dan on your beautiful wedding and the start of an incredible marriage!

When it comes to throwing an epically fun and beautiful wedding, Britnee+Nick NAILED IT.

Their gorgeous wedding at Ravenswood Event Center was summery, bright, and full of incredible details!  From the elegant flowers to the tiny grilled cheeses, every aspect of this wedding was exquisitely planned and executed.  Guests were treated to delicious custom cocktails, a gelato station, and a cigar bar.  We just loved the happy celebratory energy of this couple and their guests!

Congrats, Britnee + Nick, on an amazing wedding and your happily ever after!

Belen Aquino: Looking Back at the Best of 2016

2016 was a great year for Gerber+Scarpelli, so we're kicking off a new week by looking back at another collection of gorgeous Best Of 2016 images -- this time with our mega-talented photographer and studio manager Belen Aquino!

Belen's favorite moment at a wedding:

"When the groom and groomsmen serenaded the bride with a fully choreographed version of My Girl."

Belen's new favorite lunch spot:

"I’ve been digging Parlor, they have a crave-worthy kale cobb!"

 Belen's "pro" tip for couples:

"Embrace whatever nature throws at you. Be it a snow storm, or a 60-degree day in January."

What inspired Belen this year?

"I’ve been inspired by all the incredibly hardworking creative folks I know. Watching and working with them always makes me strive to be and do better. And my clients, who gave such amazing access to be creative and filled my Saturdays with so much laughter and joy."
