Round 2 of the wedding inspirations, and we’re talking florals today. Specifically, bridal bouquets. There’s so many different styles these days – structured, loose and flowy, all white, bold color, classic roses, and my personal favorite proteas/sugarbushes. I’m not going to pretend to know anything about flowers, other than I think they’re pretty – and I’m drawn to the more wild, bold color, loose green bouquets. You want to know more – feel free to contact any of the talented florists listed below the photos. So many great options to choose from in Chicago – find the one that’s best for YOU. Anything else you want to see? Leave a comment on the bottom and I’ll pull up a few samples for you to look through.

Last October, Nicki hung out with Alyssa + Tucker in their home and neighborhood (our FAVORITE type of engagement session). She captured them in their element, where they spend their daily lives, just relaxing and having fun with each other. We love capturing these types of engagement sessions, because we like telling this story of your life, today. When you move onto your next home or new city or next stage of life – won’t it be fun to look back on these pictures and remember what your lives were like?!  We think so.

JTP team photog, Nicki, spent the afternoon with Erin + Joe last fall, hopping around the 606 and capturing a little bit of their daily lives. We always love shooting around our couples’ neighborhoods. It tells the story of this moment in their lives – where they lived, where they spent their time, and where their love grew changed dating to engaged. This session is extra special to my heart because it’s so close to where we live in Logan/Bucktown, too! Erin + Joe’s wedding is just a little over TWO WEEKS away – and we can’t wait to celebrate with them!

How they met: “We met at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as undergrads. We didn’t know each other well, but ran back into each other several years after graduating in Chicago. Michael had to work pretty hard to get a first date, but once he did the rest was history.”

How he proposed: “Melanie had moved from Chicago to Cleveland for a year to complete her Mohs fellowship. At the end of fellowship, we were in Chicago for a friend’s wedding over Mother’s Day weekend and Melanie was scheduled to fly out on Sunday. Michael told Melanie that they were going for a walk to meet his sister on the lakefront before their Mother’s Day brunch with Melanie’s family. While walking on the lakefront overlooking the city, he got down on one knee and had a photographer there to capture the moment! Michael had already arranged an engagement party with both of their families afterwards and contacted her program director/rescheduled Melanie’s flight for Monday evening so they could spend the time celebrating with each other and their families.”

How we spent the wedding day: Melanie and Michael were surrounded by their friends and family watching their year of planning come into fruition. They danced the night away and topped off the night with tacos from a Chicago (and personal) favorite, Big Star! Take a peek into their amazing wedding day – all the best to Melanie + Michael!

Summer 2012: After college, Katie’s roommates had a friend from UW Madison come visit. Enter Jake. Shortly after the visit, Katie + Jake started dating.

August 2017: Five years later, in their apartment, Jake asked Katie to marry him. The first gift she gave him was a Harry Potter themed mug. So that morning, he had Katie pour him coffee and the ring was in the mug along with a clue that lead her to a Harry Potter book (marked at her favorite chapter) and a note.

September 2018: A little over a year later – Katie + Jake had the most beautiful wedding at the Pritzlaff in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The mix of pinks and textures against the blue sky and water was incredible. And with the help of their family and friends – they had the best night of their lives. Here are a few of our favorites, taken by JTP Team Photog, Nicki.

When you ask Kevin, he will tell you the proposal planning process started eight years ago when him and Maureen first met after which he admitted to his mom that he could see himself marrying this girl. Fast forward eight amazing years and we arrive at Maureen’s 26th birthday. After a full day out on the town celebrating (and Kevin doing his best at the seemingly impossible task of keeping it cool), they ventured to the last part of the day’s plan, dinner at the London House rooftop. Upon arrival, they were led to the roped off area of the Cupola to “wait for their table.” They headed up the walkway covered with rose petals which lead them to a small table with a bottle of champagne on ice waiting for them to celebrate. At this point, Maureen was thinking “wow, this is a lot for my birthday” until she turned around and saw Kevin’s face as he started to say “I’ve been waiting eight years to ask you this…” Kevin could do nothing to keep from shaking, sweating, smiling, and being filled with the most excitement and nervousness he had ever experienced. While the next 20 seconds he admittedly “blacked out,” he finally asked the question and received the answer he had been dying to hear for so long. Joined by their parents soon after, they celebrated the rest of the evening together taking in the beautiful views of the city with their wonderful company! The next day they left on their first European adventure together and rode the “engagement high” in London, Paris and Barcelona as they started their future of (soon-to-be) Mr. and Mrs. Johnson! – from Maureen + Kevin

I love hearing couples tell their own stories, in their own words. People always ask me if I get bored shooting weddings – and the truth is – every wedding and couple is so different… it’s always new and exciting to me 🙂 So, here’s their wedding day story, told through my camera – enjoy!

I photographed Patrice + Kevin’s Engagement session in September of 2018 at Cantigny Park. We’d never met in person, so it was a beautiful mixture of getting to know each other and capturing their relationship with my camera. We laughed and explored the park, even seeing some peacocks, but most of all – we got some super fun shots that show just how great they are as a couple. They weren’t afraid to let their guards down in front of my camera – and because of that – we have some gems! Can’t wait for the wedding!

Jackie + Colin knew each other in college, but the timing wasn’t right until Tinder intervened. After finally both being single at the same time, they ran into each other on Tinder and exchanged numbers to meet up. They met at a bar called Mcguinans – which is where Colin proposed a few years later. Their wedding had all the glam – set in Chicago’s River Roast – they were surrounded by their friends and family as they partied their way into marriage! Take a look through some of our favorite moments from their September 2019 wedding shot by JTP Team photog, Nicki.

Courtney + Joey matched on Coffee Meets Bagel in January of 2016 and exchanged a simple, “hey whats up?” After about a week, Joey asked Courtney if she wanted to meet up with him and some friends downtown. After politely declining ‘a night out with the bros,’ Courtney realized they had a mutual friend and ended up meeting up with them in her pajamas. From the first second they met – it was a match. After almost two years of dating, Joey took Courtney on the best date ever. They went to one of their favorite spots, Enolo Wine Bar, and as he sweat profusely – Joey said he wanted their, “forever to start now,” and it was the easiest YES of  Courtney’s life.

Courtney + Joey got married on September 1, 2018 at the beautiful City Winery in the West Loop of Chicago. It was a gorgeous day – despite the slight rain interruption in the middle of the ceremony! After that, everything went off without a hitch and they celebrated with their closest family and friends. Check out some of our favorite moments below! All my love to Courtney + Joey.
