James and Sherine's North Pond Proposal

When James was planning his April proposal to Sherine, he probably wasn't picturing 30-degree weather and snow!  But, when he went to pop the question at Lincoln Park's North Pond, that's what we got!  James spoiled Sherine; not only did he hire a photographer, but also a guitarist to play their favorite love songs while he got on one knee.  After Sherine said "yes!" we all hopped in a horse-drawn carriage and trotted about the neighborhood before the two of them went to the restaurant and enjoyed a custom menu of fabulous food!  Thanks to Amanda from Shannon Gail for helping to put this together, and we can't wait to see where this journey takes them!

Sonya & Neil's NYC Central Park Engagement

This past week we had some of our photographers head out to New York City for some fun and work in the Big Apple. While we were out there, we had the pleasure of shooting an engagement session with Sonya and Neil who are getting married in Chicago in September.  There couldn't be a better location to photograph an engagement than Central Park.  It was absolutely gorgeous with all the Cherry Blossoms and Magnolia trees in full bloom.  It was great walking through the park with them and we can't wait for their wedding in Fall!

Stefanie & Clint's Westmoreland Country Club Wedding

Stefanie and Clint had a destination wedding in Chicago!  Chicago was the perfect spot for them to because they live in LA and Clint, a fellow photographer, is from England.  They had a sweet ceremony at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Arlington Heights and then a fun-packed reception at the amazing Westmoreland Country Club.

Natalia & Michael's Rookery Wedding

What a gorgeous spring wedding!  These two lovelies got married on one of the most beautiful days in April so far.  Both of them attended the University of Dayton, but met when they were brought together by the power of Facebook... Michael stalked her (hey, it happens!).  They got ready at the Palmer House Hilton and then had their ceremony at Assumption.  After making it official, we did photos at some iconic Chicago spots like the river, Michigan Avenue, and the Chicago Theater.  Their reception at the Rookery looked amazing with Vale of Enna Flowers' designs, went off smoothly with day-of planning by Dara of Simply Perfect Events by Dara, and Blue Plate's catering was amazing (as always).  Guests, including Natalia's family from Chile, partied all night long with the happy couple!
