Blissful Wishes Ball

For the 3rd year in a row, we have been invited to photograph the Blissful Wishes Ball.  The ball is a fundraiser for Wish Upon a Wedding, which is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that provides weddings and vow renewals to couples facing terminal illness and serious life altering circumstances, regardless of sexual orientation.  The organization was created to celebrate the courage, determination and spirit of these couples by granting their dream wedding Wishes. Their hope is that chosen recipients can inspire other couples facing similar situations to find hope and strength.

Gerber+Scarpelli was one of the original participants to be "wish-granters"- we provided the photography for a lovely couple, Beth and Nick.  You can see their blog post here.

This year, our own Nick Gerber was nominated for the Shining Star Award, which recognizes wedding industry professionals that are philanthropic in the Chicago Wedding industry.  Previously, Kurt Gerber has won the award.

Jill & Bryan's W on Adams Wedding

Jill & Bryan had a super posh wedding at the W on Adams.  After they got ready, we photographed their ceremony at our second home, Old St. Patrick's Church.  Following their nuptials, we cruised the city for photo ops.  We went to the Art Institute Gardens, the Chicago River, and LaSalle St.  The reception was so much fun; everyone was dancing and singing the whole time!

Stephanie & Michael's Fairmont Hotel Wedding

Stephanie and Michael met at a comedy class at Second City and had such a fun wedding!  They had their first look at the Fairmont Hotel, then we went to the beautiful Cancer Survivor's Garden for romantic photos.  They had their ceremony back at the hotel, which was followed by a night of dancing and fun!  During Stephanie's dance with her grandpa, he sang her "You Are My Sunshine."  Adorable!

Lindsay & Rick's Blackstone Hotel Wedding

Lindsay and Rick had a lovely October wedding in Chicago.  The couple got ready at the Blackstone Hotel before we went to tie the knot at Old St. Pat's.  After the ceremony, we had fun with the wedding party in Grant Park and then did some romantic photos of the bride and groom back at the Blackstone.  Their reception was a blast; Entourage really rocked the house!!
