River Roast, Chicago Wedding with Mary Pat and Calen

The best weddings are the ones filled with love and tons of laughter! I don't think Mary Pat and Calen stopped smiling all day. What I do know is how happy I am to share their gallery with everyone. I was thrilled when Mary Pat and Calen asked me to photograph their wedding. First I flew out to Colorado for their absolutely incredible engagement session, then they brought me back to Chicago to capture their wedding day. As much as I love the mountains, I'm equally obsessed with city views and architecture.

We did get one huge surprise when we arrived at the reception. It turns out it was the season opening of the Chicago Riverwalk! To celebrate Chicago rigged the bridges immediately surrounding River Roast with fireworks! Of course we grabbed some photos before the reception kicked off, just check it out below!

A special thank you to Emmalee Luckas for being such an amazing second shooter!

Wyndham Hotel Wedding | Stacy & Jeff

Wow! Everything about Stacy and Jeff's wedding at the Wyndham Hotel was incredible. The portraits, the ceremony, the gorgeous view from their reception, and all of the vendors, not a single part of their wedding could have been better. Plus Jeff just happens to be the creator of the best and most hilarious product I've ever heard of! Dude Wipes I know Jeff would love it if I went into detail about what this product is for, but Stacy might not be as exstatic. So I'll let you do some research! Even more important than Jeff's business venture I wanted to send a sincere thank you to everyone who helped with this wedding. You are all so fantastic! Don't forget to check out the killer video from LoudByte Cinematography, I'll have a link to it at the end.
