While most couples dream of sunny, Spring weddings this Chicago duo was quite the opposite. They chose to embrace the city’s wintertime beauty, and the results? Pure magic. Dive right into JPP Studios’ captures to see for yourself!
From JPP Studios… This showcases the magic of a winter wedding. I think it’s fair to say that most people have a negative impression of winter and weddings during this time of year, as a whole, are mostly overlooked. However the typical winter elements that discourage people (i.e. staying indoors, snow, cold weather, minimal daylight, etc) are actually what make this Chicago wedding shine. Despite the fact that the wedding reception took place in an industrial building within a dense, urban city, the whole affair felt very cozy and intimate. The beautiful decor and ambient lighting created a rustic and almost rural feel, as if you were around a camp fire. Much of the success is owed to the coordinator, Miss Daniels, for tying everything together and making the ship sail smoothly. Lastly, to top it all off, it snowed that day…and despite what the skeptics might say, a winter day in Chicago can be a very beautiful and romantic place.
