Kathryn and Yoav's Peninsula Hotel Wedding

I think it's safe to say that no one had fun at Kathryn & Yoav's wedding... NOT!  These two, whose engagement session was earlier this year, pulled off an amazing wedding!  The whole deal was at The Peninsula hotel.  Their ceremony and reception took place under a giant, magnificent chuppah.  During the ceremony, groomsmen held a more intimate chuppah above the bride and groom.  This wedding was personal, fun, and full of love!  We're glad Yoav's family from Israel was able to join everyone in Chicago!

Katey & Gordon's Maggiano's Wedding

Katey & Gordon - what a great couple!  After getting ready at the downtown Marriott, the couple made their way to Old Town's St. Joseph's Church for their wedding ceremony.  They made it official, then we strolled around the city for some beautiful photos with the sun was setting.  Guests had a great time partying down at the reception at Maggiano's.
