No matter how many times I scroll through the images by Momoko Photography, I can’t get enough of this classic-meets-modern love affair. And with a gold, pink and navy palette layered with prettiest blooms by Three Branches Floral Design, there’s a really good chance you’ll feel the same. Set at the stunning Chicago History Museum, the full gallery is the only place to be.
From the Bride… Both the bride and groom come from big families, so the challenge was to make every wedding guest feel special. From the beginning, guests were greeted with their own potted succulents (planted and potted by the mother of the bride) with hand rendered name tags(created by the bride, who also designed the invitations and liners).
Bridemaids wore different navy, long dresses, which added more texture and depth to the bridal party. Dinner, drinks and dancing to the amazing Chicago Catz Band made for a reception that won’t be forgotten. Gold and white details with hints of pinks and different shades of peonies and and navy added some glamour and sophistication to the classic Chicago History Museum venue.
From the Photographer… There are always many emotions involved in a wedding, almost always good. With the stress of preparation and the excitement of joining to two families together it can be overwhelming and each person can handle all these emotions differently. With that said, Maureen and Dave were kind and wonderful and did a fantastic job at simply enjoying the party they so laboriously planned.
Maureen is a graphic designer who knows exactly how she wanted her wedding to look like, but with the desire to have their guests feel special. In addition, Dave and Maureen are a lot of fun. As a photographer I try to get great dancing shots, but this wedding I found myself dancing along with the guests as well as get great dancing shots. I thoroughly enjoyed my time photographing for Maureen and Dave Curosh.
