We LOVED working with Michelle and Brian for their Chicago wedding! These two wanted just a day that would be very traditional, romantic, simple, & just focus on their marriage!! Which we’re happy to say they 100% accomplished. It was a great way to wrap up the 2018 wedding season!
The Bride & Groom are the CUTEST together & you can just tell that they belong together!! They are both VERY hard working & live/work in Chicago!
The whole day flowed SO well! Not one thing went wrong. Not one thing caused panic or distress. Everyone was on time, calm, enjoyed every second, and just everyone in the bridal party was on top of it!
The didn’t have a first look and locked eyes with each other as Michelle was gliding down the aisle of the Alice Millar Chapel (Northwestern’s Church).
Fun fact about the chapel- you need to have someone in your family that has graduated from Northwestern in order to reserve this space for your wedding day. Brian’s brother attended, as well as one of his parents. The church is STUNNING & is covered in purple stain glass windows which are just spectacular when the sun hits them!
After the Ceremony they went up to London House’s 23rd Floor/Cupola which was just absolutely spectacular & were taken RIGHT as the sun was going down!!
One of the Groomsmen, John Graham was on the Bachelor (Becca’s season) & Bachelor in Paradise which was pretty awesome! The Best Man’s speech was also THE BEST and had everyone cracking up the entire time! It just was an overall spectacular day & could not have gone smoother!
We absolutely loved pre-planning with Steve at London House. He was SO on top of it, answered emails right away, and just LOVES what he does! On the day-of, his staff had everything ready, were so on top of it, and made our jobs SO easy!!! We also Always LOVE working with this photo & video team!
