Real Wedding: Megan + Matt, ceremony + reception

Yesterday, I posted the stunning portraits of the couple as they were getting ready.

All photography is by Eric O’Connor from Allori Photography.

All eyes are on the adorable flower girl.

Huge smiles as the couple recesses down the aisle.

I am completely jealous of the photos taken during the winter evening. I always wanted a winter wedding!

The Murphy Auditorium allows for some stunning photos onsite.
It’s a great alternative when the weather doesn’t want to cooperate!

Berghoff Catering made the wedding cake.

My obsession with symmetry! I love this photograph.

Real Wedding: Megan + Matt

Most of my real wedding posts are all about the details. As a wedding planner, I am usually obsessed with the personal touches that couples add to make a wedding their own. However, when I saw Megan and Matt’s photos, I couldn’t help but drool over the portraits. Megan looked stunning

A close-up of the bride’s fabulous make-up. Look at those lashes!

Doesn’t she look so happy?

A fantastic groomsmen shot.

I love the blue light effect.

Framed to be picture perfect!

My second favorite Catholic Churches in the city.

More pictures are coming tomorrow!

Wedding of Jacey + Dan

When I first met Jacey and Dan, I could tell that they weren’t from Chicago. While both have Midwestern roots, they are 100% LA in their creativity and fun! Dan is a screenwriter while Jacey works in fashion. Therefore, it was a total pleasure for me to work with them!
In this first photo, Jacey chose to buck the tradition of bridal white shoes to wear her gorgeous patent leather red Marc Jacobs shoes. They were the first gift that Dan ever gave to her.

All photos by Matt Schademann from Schademann Studios! Thank you Matt for getting these photos to me. I love them.

The couple took a number of photos around the church,
but not the run of the mill at the alter type.
Making use of their surroundings:
Holy Family is across the street from a firehouse.

The Grand Piazza has a gorgeous spiral staircase into the entrance to the ballroom.

Taxi anyone?

Stay tuned for all of the fabulous details tomorrow!
