Elizabeth & Logan- Cafe Brauer Lincoln Park Zoo Chicago

Elizabeth & Logan were married in early May of this year- with a stunning ceremony at St. James Lutheran Church and a chic & lively reception at Cafe Brauer (which is part of the Lincoln Park Z00). 

Elizabeth and Logan are loved by so many, and share a love with one another that is so wonderful to witness. They truly respect each other and embrace their individuality while facing life as a team. They take life's challenges and stride and remember to laugh when things get rough.  That said, the planning process was lighthearted and easy with them- and they picked some fantastic vendors!  

We also happen to be in love with the photographs- Braxton does an amazing job of creating epic images that are completely frame worthy! He knows how to make a moment dramatic and we love him for it! The setting that Elizabeth and Logan selected for the day was so fitting for Braxton's photography documentary style (with an artistic twist, of course). Which results in some seriously vogue images.  It's one of the pieces of advice we give to all of our couples- choose a photographer that captures memories in a way that resonates with you. There are so many options out there- which means there is a photographer that is perfect for YOU and capture the moments that are so important to you (be it details, candids, portraits, etc.).

Swoooooooooning over this shot right here. How EPIC is that chandalier as a backdrop for Elizabeth's gorgeous gown. Gah. We almost fell over we love it so much. The Public Hotel is amazing! 

We love Elizabeth's expression here- a Daddy is often a girl's first love, and you can see that on her face. Such a special bond between Father & daughter.
