Finally spring decided to show up for Emma and Michael’s late April wedding! It was a gorgeous 60 degree sunny day in Chicago – the perfect setting for their downtown wedding. Although they are now living in St. Louis, they chose to get married in Chicago where they used to live and had fallen in love.
I met everyone in the morning for hair and makeup with the amazing team of Jody and Christina from Tamara Makeup and Hair Artistry. The ceremony was at the gorgeous and historic Holy Family Parish where Emma walked down the aisle in her custom made gown by Victoria Sdoukos . From there we stopped in the West Loop area for photos and the iconic Chicago Board of Trades. Then it was off to the gorgeous reception at Hotel Allegro. KT and her team there did an AMAZING job. The venue was perfection with flowers from Stemline Creative and cake from Alliance Bakery. Dustin with Style Matters kept the place rocking all night! Thank you to my assistant Robyn for being amazing as always!
Congratulations to Emma and Michael and thank you again for allowing me to capture your wedding day!

During Cocktail hour guests were encouraged to leave their thumbprints and sign creating leaves on the tree and a wonderful piece of art!
