Jimmy and I had a wonderful time this past weekend shooting our first downtown Chicago wedding! We weren't sure what to expect on Saturday since we had never met Brittany and Kevin before (They studied law at Tulane and currently live in New Orleans!) but they had a gorgeous wedding day! The weather was perfect and as the day went on, every location we shot at got better and better, making their Same Day Edit so fun to piece together!
Brittany and Kevin both got ready at Palmer House located downtown Chicago.
After getting ready, we left Palmer House and hopped onto the trolley with the wedding party. We then drove around to take offsite location pictures (and video in our case!). Chicago is such a beautiful city!
Their ceremony and reception were held at Pazzo's @ 311. Saturday was the first time we had ever shot a wedding at Pazzo's and we are absolutely in love with all of the natural light that this venue has to offer! The towering palm trees added a nice touch to Brittany and Kevin's ceremony, and it almost felt as if we were down in New Orleans! :)
In an earlier post I shared my idea of using the seating cards that we receive at weddings as a part of our own wedding. Brittany saw that post and had seating cards made specifically for us to use! We thought that was awesome and we are so happy to include that little piece of their day in our own!
And if you haven't seen their Same Day Edit yet, check it out!
Also, I wanted to mention that we had a wonderful day working with the photographers that we have chosen for our own wedding! ;) I'll talk more about them on Thursday, so check back in a couple of days!! (SOOOO EXCITED!!!!)
