Meet Michele & Nick! Although they live in New York, their families brought them back to Chicago to get married!
We started the day at the Crowne Plaza where the girls getting ready room was a hub of activity! I have to give major props to Michele, her mom and maids for the DIY work they did. They put together all the bouquets, bouts, centerpieces and other decor around the venue and they looked amazing!
After a first look with dad (love it!) and then her groom to be we headed out for photos in the city. The forecast was giving me major stress all week and even that day it looked questionable, but thankfully held out for our stop downtown at the Wrigley Building.
Their ceremony at City View Loft was one of my favorites. They incorporated several traditions including the Mexican lasso and Greek crowning. Their vows to each other were amazing. As you can tell by the photos below their was plenty of laughter and love!
They danced the night away with sun setting over the Chicago skyline behind them and the dance floor was rocking all night long!
