Chicago Wedding Photographer // Joe & Victoria – Married in Chicago!
This is one of my favorite weddings to date! Joe and Victoria are such a fun and kind couple. Throughout the entire wedding process they have been so easy and wonderful to work with….so I wasn’t surprised when they were just as sweet on their wedding day.
They were surrounded by their family and closest friends traveling from all over the United States. All of their decor was simple and perfect…..and pink! Love!
Joe & Victoria – I know you probably won’t be seeing these photos right away since you are on your honeymoon in Greece (so jealous…) but I hope you cherish them forever and love each one! We had such a great time at your wedding!!
Victoria knew what she wanted her dress to look like, but when she started to look for it and couldn’t find something quite right…..she decided to have someone make it and it was gorgeous!
My second shooter for the day was Joe, aka…the hubs. He rocked these getting ready photos of “Groom Joe”….
First look time!
So…they kind of like their dog, Milo. Not sure if you noticed….
I photograph lots of country weddings, but I have to say, shooting around the city is quickly becoming a favorite! Every corner you turn there is a new building with great color and texture. Love!
Elizabeth from Posh Petals did an amazing job with their bouquets. So pretty!
I loved their ceremony. Unique. Casual. Happy!
Victoria’s sister has been a wedding planner for years, so she helped make their day fabulous and gorgeous!
The dahlias were all hand picked by Victoria’s mom and sister….now that is true love!
So so so pretty!
Before the party started…..we ran to a nearby building and climbed to the top for some photos with gorgeous views of the city. Love these!
What a fun wedding!!
