Amelia and Peter's Murphy Auditorium Wedding

There's something so magical about a winter wedding during the holidays. The twinkling lights, the lovely decorations, everybody is in a great mood. It couldn't be more fun! Amelia and Peter wedding incorporated all these magical elements. The day started at the Hotel Intercontinental in the presidential suite. The sunlight streaming through the windows and the city forty stories below. After a quick 1st look in the suite, we headed to Union Station for pictures. After some fun with this glamorous group, it was off to St James Chapel. St James is such a great spot in the winter, so cozy and warm. The reception was held just a few blocks away at the historic Murphy Auditorium. The lovely ladies from Clementine Events made sure that everything looked amazing! And the always awesome Entourage kept the dance floor packed all night long. Congrats Amelia and Peter!

Rachel and Gene's Waldorf Wedding

 We had an awesome time working with Rachel and Gene on their beautiful winter wedding! Rachel got ready in the Trump's super swanky salon while Gene suited up in the Penthouse of the Waldorf Astoria. After they saw each other for the first time at Trump then it was over to the Waldorf in a classic Rolls Royce. From there it was a beautiful ceremony before a JUMPIN party - thanks to Al Okyne of Okyne Media Lab. All in all it was a truly excellent party and we're so happy to have been a part of their big day! Take a look at some of our favorite pics!

Trish and Stephen's Awesome Allerton Wedding

A couple years ago Trish and Stephen met on a train platform. Stephen, who is from Ireland, asked Trish for help navigating the Chicago Transit System and from there a romance began that would take her across the Atlantic to live with him in Ireland. After Stephen proposed they began planning a wedding in Chicago that they knew would be a treat for their friends and family from both the US and Ireland. After a beautiful mass at Old St Pats the snow started gently falling providing a great backdrop for a photo tour that included The Chicago Brown Line platform, The Wrigley Building and The Kinzie St Bridge. We wrapped things up and it was back to the Allerton for a wonderful celebration including hilarious toasts and manic dancing. Trish and Stephen are back in Ireland now and we're so thrilled that we got a chance to be a part of their wedding that we threatened to crash on their couch if we get to make it over the pond anytime soon!
