You may remember Bridget and Brian from their Montrose Harbor Engagement Session. After we did this shoot, I was so excited for their wedding day to get here. Not only did Bridget & Brian decide to have their wedding reception at City Winery (one of my favorite spots), they also had an awesome band that turned their celebration into a fun rock concert dance party.
These two were super excited and giddy to get the day underway! B & B made sure to include their families in all the details and I could just feel the love and adoration emanating from their guests. Bridget & Brian sure knew how to make their loved ones feel special… from ringing Irish Wedding Bells at the ceremony, making a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project in honor of Uncle Jim, to having guests sign a wine barrel top to be used as art in their home, their was no detail overlooked.
As I documented the day, I couldn’t help but feel like family… The wedding party was so sweet, and sitting as a guest at dinner was a total treat.
B & B, I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you both as you begin your life together. I wish you much love and luck in the future and feel so honored you chose me to document your special day!
I’m so excited to share Bridget & Brian’s Chicago City Winery Wedding Photos with you. Not only did City Winery serve delicious food, they coordinated a fabulous party!
I loved Bridget’s Maggie Sottero cap-sleeve wedding gown.
We decided to head downtown for some classic “Chicago” nighttime photos in front of the Chicago Board of Trade.
Bridget & Brian’s wedding party was so fun to hang out with on the trolley! They made sure we were comfortable and having a good time
We finished up the couple’s shoot on the State Street Bridge in front of the Chicago Theatre.
At the reception, guests signed this wine barrel top so they could hang it in their home as art and reminisce about the day.
The details were to die for! Gorgeous flowers, place cards, cake, and uplighting.
I love how Bridget & Brian decided to have “B & B” marquee lights as decor in the room… Super fun!
Bridget & her Dad danced to the Rolling Stones…They made it a family affair!
Their wedding band Recycle the Day nailed it!! They were tons of fun and kept the dance floor hopping all night.
