Lush Life

Last Friday Nick and I went to a wonderful party hosted by Natalie of Hello Darling. She has a sweet little space on Paulina and Grand. Natalie asked us to snap a few pictures, which of course we were happy to do. There are many great photographers out there, so we were honored to do it. The vintage prints by Maurince Seymour were very beautiful. And quite inspiring, as the season kicks off.

Many of our favorite vendors were there including planners Ali, Alexandra, Renny.

Thank you for a wonderful time!

Alice Padrul - Behind the Scenes

This past weekend was an exciting weekend! We worked with another West Loop wedding vendor; dress designer Alice Padrul, on her print ad campaign for the 3rd year in a row. She has some great new designs, many of which are going to be carried by dress boutiques nationwide! We had a wonderful time working with everyone involved to get stunning photographs for Alice. For those brides still in the dress shopping phase: you aren't done until you've gone to see her! Thanks for 3 great years, Alice! Also, thanks to Eunita for such great work on the hair and makeup/styling!

Kurt, Nick

Lizzie + Trevor

This Saturday Lizzie and Trevor tied the knot at one of our favorite wedding venues, A New Leaf! There was no stopping them (or us) in the pursuit of awesome pictures and we even went to North Ave Beach, fighting gail force winds and the threat of snow in order to get the shot! It also happened to be Trevor's birthday so he'll never forget his anniversary. Also, what better birthday present than a wife?! Congratulations Lizzie and Trevor!

(And happy birthday Trevor!)

Nichole + Justin

This past Saturday, we got to work at the Union League Club of Chicago with Nichole and Justin! It turns out that they've been dating for over 10 years so the Union League was the perfect choice for the couple because it also has so much history! The party lasted long into the night with the Glen Traeger Orchestra rocking the house.

Congratulations Nichole + Justin!
