Meet Anna & Paul! I was thrilled to photograph their intimate wedding in July.
When we first talked and they explained to me that they weren’t planning the “traditional” wedding I knew I wanted to work with them. Not there is anything wrong with traditional, but I’m a firm believer that you should plan the wedding that you want, not the wedding the someone tells you that you should.
They decided to have their close friends and family join them at the Jackson Junge Gallery in Wicker Park for a ceremony and cocktail reception. I met them there pre-ceremony and we headed out for some photos. The added challenge of the day was that Wicker Park Fest was happening and the gallery was actually inside the festival! So we made the best of it by incorporating the crowds and festival go-ers in a few images. There are some great murals in that area so we roamed around and then popped into Emporium for a drink and a little pinball action. I wish every wedding was this chill!!
After photos we headed back to the gallery as guests started arriving. They said their I do’s while guests sipped on cocktails and toasted the newlyweds! They spent the rest of the evening enjoying cocktails and food while chatting with their guests.
Here are some of my favorites!
