Lisa & Larry

What a day these two had!  On our way to the ceremony at St. Josephat's, the sky starting dropping hail all over us... a good omen, perhaps!  Must have been, because even the rain didn't get these two down!  We did some shots around the city and in Union Station before making it to Germania Place for their reception.  It was quite a party - check out the slideshow to see for yourself!

Caroline & John's Engagement Session

Caroline and John's engagement session was so much fun!  We got a great view of the skyline from the south loop, and then got a whole different view of it from the north side!  They are going to have a great wedding this fall at the Local 399 Engineer's Hall - check back later to see more!

Loraine & Dan

Loraine and Dan had a beautiful summer wedding.  The forecast called for rain, but the bad weather cleared in time and allowed us to take some great photos around the city.  They tied the knot at the Annunciation Cathedral and had their reception at the famous Blackstone Hotel.   All together it was an amazing day!

Gabriela & David's Cafe Brauer Wedding

 Gabriela and David’s wedding is was truly unforgettable! This wedding had it all – beautiful flowers, gigantic cake, awesome music and a stunning bride and groom.  

Gabriela made her bouquet out of her family members’ old brooches, which was a fun way to incorporate “something barrowed”.

The couple got ready at Hotel Dana, before venturing over to Olive Park. To escape the heat we went inside to the Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows located at Navy Pier.

The couple got married at the Foreman Pavilion, located in the Lincoln Park Zoo. After cocktails, guests retreated into CafĂ© Brauer. Anthony Gowder Designs did an amazing job with the flowers.

Chicago Style Weddings: Designer Challenge

The current issue of Chicago Style Weddings has an entire spread shot by our very own Kurt Gerber!  He photographed the Designer's Challenge - a project in which different designs were set up with a variety of themes.  Check out the spreads and get some inspiration! 

Genny & Alex

Genny & Alex were fabulous clients - willing to do anything! We had a great time with them, and their wedding was fantastic.  We started out at the Belden Stratford Hotel in Lincoln Park, where we were able to watch from the window as Frost set up the reception area at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.  We then embarked on a photo safari of sorts all over Chicago before the official ceremony took place at Old St. Pat's.  The newlywed couple and their guests dined al-fresco at the Nature Museum and partied all night afterwards!
