Maddie + Stephen came in from Iowa City to get married in Chicago, and it was awesome. City Hall moved their ceremony to the courthouse (which was extra fitting since both of them are currently in law school) and then we bounced around downtown Chicago on the riverwalk for some iconic Chicago photos. Maddie + […]

Chicago Courthouse Elopement | Maddie + Stephen

Like most couples in 2020, Sarah + Butch were forced to postpone their big wedding reception and have a smaller, micro-wedding. The Gwen proved to be the perfect location for this, as their suite has an open air balcony for the ceremony, and guests were able to enjoy the wedding safely, outdoors, and with an […]

Chicago Micro-Wedding | Covid Friendly Outdoor Rooftop Wedding at The Gwen | Sarah + Butch

November 7th, 2020 was a special day for many. As Alyssa + Nick rounded the corner of City Hall to get married and meet me for some pre-ceremony photos, they exclaimed, “Biden just won!” It was a moment I’ll never forget – as we were in the heart of downtown Chicago, taking photos to celebrate […]

Chicago Elopement at City Hall | Getting Married in a Pandemic | Alyssa + Nick

Covid-19 really made 2020 interesting for those trying to get married. Post-poned weddings, micro-weddings, elopements, cancellations… these are just a few of the challenges that were thrown at 2020 couples. But, Melissa + Brad made the best of a difficult situation (okay, maybe many), and came out looking and feeling fabulous on the day of. […]

Micro-Wedding at Hotel Zachary, Chicago | Melissa + Brad

Donna + Ricky were supposed to get married at Lacuna Lofts last November but, like most 2020 couples trying to get married, had to push their big wedding to 2021. On top of the wedding juggling they were already doing, they last minute decided to have a micro-wedding at one of their favorite local patios, […]

Covid-19 Wedding at Reclaimed Bar| Donna + Ricky

Austin + Brett were all set to get married at The Hive on Hubbard before Covid-19 happened. Plans changed, chaos ensued (for the entire world) – but they didn’t skip a beat. Their plans quickly changed and they adapted as gracefully as ever. Their Hive on Hubbard wedding transformed into a beautiful Logan Square backyard […]

Logan Square Backyard Chicago Wedding | Austin + Brett’s Mini Wedding

I spent Leap Year morning with David + Michael (and 100 other couples) at City Hall (oh the days before social distancing!). We waited in line, chatted about their decision to elope and escape to Portugal for a week, got them married with the kindest judge, walked along the riverfront, and ended the morning with […]

City Hall Elopement | David + Michael

Today, we’re looking back into early 2020, when we were still hugging, celebrating weddings, and social distancing zoom calls weren’t a thing. This one holds a special place in my heart as it’s the wedding of my sister-in-law and new brother-in-law, Jolyn + Michael. I was lucky enough to be in the wedding party, so […]

Revolution Brewery Wedding | Jolyn + Michael

It feels a little odd to be posting pretty pictures of weddings given the current state of emergency, but I’m choosing to continue celebrating love and life. I hope at least one person finds these photos uplifting and a breath of fresh air amongst never-ending news reports and pleads for people to stay home/isolated. For […]

Alyssa + Tucker’s River Roast Wedding

Matt and Kelsie had Italian class together their sophomore year in college. It was a small class but they didn’t engage much directly. They were both out one night watching the Blackhawks with friends at Kincade’s in Lincoln Park, when they recognized each other from UW, started talking, and stayed connected from then on. Fast […]
