Mary + Nick are the kind of couple that radiate joy and love! We couldn’t wipe the smiles off our faces all day. The celebration started at Hotel Arista in Naperville where both the groom and bride got ready. We spent the rest of the day at Noahs Event Venue where we watched Mary + Nick experience so many firsts as newlyweds. What an incredible day!

Hilary + John have the most incredible, beautiful, charismatic personalities and we had so much fun joining them on this momentous day! They were married at Old St Patricks before taking a stroll around the city for some fun colorful shots in front of Chicago’s street art. Then we were joined by their sweet son for a few shots in the Women’s Garden before heading to their reception! We loved all of the personal touches at their reception but our very favorite detail was their cake topper which included their whole family! Cheers to the newlyweds!

We won the Bride & Groom jackpot with Elizabeth + Joshua! These two were set up while Elizabeth was a resident and Joshua’s mom was her attending. Joshua is a Chicago Police Officer, and Elizabeth’s father is also a Police Officer. She got ready at her parents home, they were married at Old Saint Patricks, and celebrated afterwards at Salvatore’s. They were married by the priest that baptized both of them. The world works in mysterious ways and it is clear they were made for one another!

We loved hanging out with Carolina + Eric earlier this month. The day started with the bride being serenaded with “Going To The Chapel” by her mother and aunt. These two decided to wait till the ceremony to see each other for the first time and we think it is clear from the grooms face that it was worth the wait! During cocktail hour we snuck away and got some incredible shots of them from the roof of The Gwen.  What an incredible day!

Chicago Wedding Photography: Dipa+Brandon

Dipa+Brandon just had their first wedding anniversary and we're so excited to celebrate by looking back at their incredible wedding festivities! Over three very special days, these two merged not only their lives, but their families and cultures. Dipa comes from a Hindu background and Brandon a Jewish one, so their wedding celebrations honored both religious traditions in a beautiful and unique way! There are way too many amazing photos to share in just one blog post, so check back in for parts 2 and 3 of their wedding! The images in today's post are from the first day of festivities -- the Puja, Pithi, and Mehndi Ceremonies. Congrats, Dipa+Brandon on your first year of marriage!
