Sophisticated and elegant, this Chicago wedding is all about the beautiful details. I’m talking drop-dead gorgeous florals from A Stem Above, a mesmerizing Pronovias gown and a Peninsula Hotel setting that will literally make your heart sing. (It’s true.) In other words, it’s a traditional stunner from start to finish and you can see every last love-filled moment captured by Emilia Jane Photography right here in the full gallery.
From the Bride… Our story is very unique. Jimmy and I met randomly during the summer in Chicago – we all know how fun those are! I was en route to a concert with my best friend. We were waiting at a stoplight, and Jimmy rolled up to us on his bicycle (coming back from Castaways). Jimmy decided to strike up a conversation while we all waited for the light to change. It just so happens that he was going to the exact same concert as we were! Being the outspoken and daring guy that he is, he asked for my number and said we should hang out at the show – so we did! We ended up spending the summer together… and the rest is history!
When Jimmy proposed on my birthday trip to Chicago (we were living in New York at the time), we knew that there was no other place in the world we would rather tie the knot than Chicago. There are so many amazing venues in the city, so it was a hard choice for us to make, but the more and more we thought about it, we knew the Peninsula was the place for us. It was classic, open and airy, and Jimmy had experience throwing a party there before (with his Fraternity when he was in school at Northwestern). We wanted our wedding to be simple, elegant, and of course, an awesome party – which is exactly what we got. We couldn’t have asked for more.
