Rene and Frank’s Chicago wedding was timeless and classic, with an industrial twist! The florals, color palette and attire choices were SO Chicago! They were formal and elegant, with a touch of timeless glamour. I mean, do you see Rene’s dress? GORGEOUS!
These two had a really fun wedding party- Rene’s girlfriends were so doting and sweet during the prep time and Frank’s group was really laid back.
After Rene and Frank were all prepped and ready, it was time for the first look! This moment may have been our favorite of the day. They opted for something really intimate … the hotel room! It gave them a wonderful opportunity to just BE with each other. They both allowed themselves time to be emotional (and excited) before getting their formal photos taken. Having a first look means our timeline is set-up for most of the formal photos before the reception. It frees up the couple to enjoy more of the reception! Speaking of…
Their wedding venue is 100% industrial chic. Morgan Manufacturing is a great space! The brick walls and hardwood floors are stunning. The couple held their ceremony and reception on-site. The greenery garland that lined the aisle was so lush and romantic. And the way Rene and Frank locked eyes while fighting the tears was chill-inducing! They are SO in love!
We love these two and wish the ALL the best!
