Chicago wedding

All That Glitters

Another “were to start” wedding couples?!

Both Keke and Kyle are creatives like Jimmy and myself, so we knew their wedding would be extraordinary! Without a doubt, we were correct.

Their day started at The Guest House Hotel, located in the neighborhood of Andersonville (Chicago). We loved everything about this boutique hotel, from the barn doors to the luxury feel of the rooms themselves. It was the perfect space for wedding day prep!

Their ceremony and reception were held at the Ravenswood Event Center. It’s a really cool industrial urban loft space that we love to film in. In our opinion, Ravenswood is a definite must see if you’re planning a Chicago wedding.

They decorated the space with lots of greenery and this amazing ornate rug that totally complimented Keke’s gold dress and emerald shoes. I loved every bit of the creativity put into their day!

While the details of their wedding day were amazing, Keke and Kyle themselves were what made their day so fantastic. They’re both easy going and so fun to be around! We also loved their use of movie/ TV quotes and references throughout the day! ❤️😂

Watch below for the full affect!

Chicago Bound

I introduce May + Kirby, otherwise known as #kirbaybay2015. I can't even express our appreciation to May and Kirby for allowing us to be a part of their wedding day. We seriously had an epic time capturing their special moments!

From our first Skype meeting, I knew their wedding would be fabulous. May and Kirby are two of the most inspiring, kind, and overall exciting people to be around. Of course they would host their wedding at an awesome Chicago venue!

Their ceremony and reception were held at the Ravenswood Event Center. The ceremony and reception actually took place in the Atrium & Loft spaces, which are gorgeous industrial, naturally lit spaces, perfect for weddings. As I'm sure you've gathered, I'm obsessed with this venue! :)

In addition to the perfect venue, May and Kirby had a guest list of a lifetime. Friends and family traveled from all over the world to watch them exchange their (ugh! so epic) personal vows. They had us laughing and crying, along with everyone else in attendance. We truly couldn't be more excited for these two!


Congrats to May and Kirby!

The Windy City

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.

In love with this picture location!

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!

Such a beautiful venue!

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! :)

A glimpse of Brittany and Kevin's beautiful ceremony at Pazzo's!

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!!!!)
