With a Bride that can’t stop smiling, stunning blush florals from A Stem Above, leather and lace ‘maids’ dresses, and one of the most covetable pieces of “something blue” we’ve ever seen, this downtown Chicago wedding has it all! Lucky for us, the ever-talented Jacqui Cole Photography was there to capture every last bit of pretty, and shared it all with us right here.
From Jacqui Cole Photography… Courtney and Jamie’s wedding was a day full of romance, love and complete joy. Jamie decided to get ready with the Groomsmen at their childhood home. He gifted the Groomsmen an engraved bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label and happily toasted to his future before leaving for the church. Courtney and the Bridesmaids calmly got ready at the Loews Chicago O’Hare. Jamie gifted his Bride-to-be a beautiful pair of diamond earrings, as he wrote in her card, she deserved an upgrade for promising her life to him.
Courtney and Jamie wed at the stunning St Alphonsus, Chicago. It is such a breathtaking church and the perfect backdrop for such a joyful ceremony. We spent some time around the city taking portraits. Courtney opted for a more subtle, elegant backdrop of the Art Institute and I think it complemented her style perfectly! Their reception took place at the Loews Chicago O’Hare. The decor was classic yet romantic, with soft hydrangeas and whimsical blush roses. The couple danced the night away to the David Rothstein Band, who put on a fantastic performance! Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Smith! Your wedding was truly an honor to capture and I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
