She said yes! Under the moon and the stars!

A surprise proposal this amazing needed tons of planning. After weeks of constant communication with Daniel and the helpful staff at Adler allowing us to scout and rehearse the moment, everything went as planned with only minor hiccups.

Daniel got Katie into wearing a gorgeous dress by tricking her into thinking they were invited to a restaurant opening night. This was all solidified through fake text conversations with the “restaurant owner”. But first, a stop at the Adler to kill some time. While inside the Adler, they were to “sneak” into the Grainger Sky Theater just to check it out. Once there, they were greeted by annoyed photographers and videographers (us) who tried to kick them out because we were setting up for an “event”. As Daniel convinced us to let them in just for a peek, he leads Katie towards a cocktail table where chocolate treats and champagne awaits right under the enormous moon and galaxy. That’s when Katie’s reaction lit the theater as Daniel went on one knee. After she said yes, a collection of their unforgettable moments together lit the galaxy along with some of their favorite tunes.

After a few photos inside the theater, we headed outside to beat the storm for a signature Chicago skyline photo. Congratulations Katie & Daniel! You two laugh well together and the way you smile at each other proves you’re made for each other. Thanks for letting us capture this very special and amazing event!

Northerly Island is Sarah & Anthony’s most favorite spot in Chicago (and their dog’s favorite place to play too) so it was only fitting to do their engagement photos there. While it’s not a frequent spot for photos, it certainly brings a fresh and different perspective of Chicago’s skyline. There’s plenty of walking commitment but once you get past that, you’ll be rewarded with spectacular backdrops. We did get pounded with strong lakefront winds and I myself got caught in a wave with gear at hand, but the golden sun made up for that sacrifice.

Thanks for roughing it out Sarah & Anthony! See you next year! Same time, same place!

November… it’s like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get. Danielle & Mike had an unseasonably warm but very windy day. But as you can see, the sun cooperated and we have an amazing skyline sunset shot! Yes, Chicago has the most beautiful skyline in the world, period!

Their day started at a trendy boutique hotel, Hotel Lincoln in the heart of Lincoln Park. After a quick “first look” inside the hotel, we crossed the street for some quick photos with Mickey! (we love dogs)

Both ceremony and reception took place at Café Brauer Being that their very first date took place at Lincoln Park Zoo, they were destined to marry at Cafe Brauer, one of our favorite Chicago venues!

Some cool details… They had a cute custom wood carved cake topper with the 3 of them (Mickey that is). There was an elaborate display of candle holders that also served as wonderful guest favors that everyone enjoyed. And as usual, Scarlet Petal did an amazing job dressing up the venue with a nature theme while the ladies from Events With Benefitz kept the day running smooth.

While the weather was too windy for outdoor bridal party photos, we certainly made up for it with the more important moments. Congratulations Danielle & Mike and thank you so much for having us at your special day!

Jen & Mike + LOP = a perfect match! They love photos and they planned the day around photos. Not to sound selfish but in this case, I think it’s OK! A fun wedding party, perfect weather and well thought out timeline helped us deliver some great images.

The day started at the Westin Chicago River North downtown followed by an emotional first look on the Dearborn bridge. We then hopped on a trolley and headed to some stops at Kinzie St Bridge, Fulton Market, and Olive Park.

The combination of details for their venue was a perfect harmony which complemented the many urban spots for photos. Some cool details… they had a very unique escort card presentation, very urban and creative. Check out the photos on our FB page. Their guests were also treated to a Canadian late night snack, Poutine, representing Mike’s side of the family.

Thanks Jen & Mike for having us document your day!

We have to say thanks to the all star team of vendors that contributed to this great day.
