Elegant Chapel Wedding

Between the mint ‘maids and the lovely Dilly Lilly blooms, this unbelievably stunning gallery from Kina Wicks Photography can only be described as dreamy. With a light filled venue and a peachy mint palette, this gorgeous affair is show-stopping from beginning to end. What lies beyond all the pretty is moment upon sweet moment of perfection. Click here for more and check out the fun I Do Film below!


From Kina Wicks PhotographyElegant and classic with a bit of whimsy is how I would describe Diana & Ryan’s day. Diana got ready for the day at their Lincoln Park home with her sweet dog Maya tagging along the entire time. There was an air of excitement the entire morning and it perfectly came together as Ryan had the biggest smile on his face as Diana walked down the aisle of Madonna Della Strada Chapel. The color scheme was a refreshing mint and peach and the perfect sunny day that accompanied the color scheme made the day truly beautiful.

Downtown Chicago Summer Engagement

This windy city e-shesh has totally run away with my heart after laying eyes on all the lovely images from Jacqui Cole Photography. With Chicago as their backdrop, these lovebirds were all smiles and sweet stares as they embarked on their city stroll. A lovely riverwalk against a beautiful skyline, the gallery is filled with even more gorgeousness, and you can see it all right here.

From Jacqui Cole PhotographyI just love everything about Lauren and Mike’s quintessential Chicago engagement session. Lauren and Mike are both from Arizona and were planning their Chicago wedding from a distance. They are such an easy going, kind-hearted couple. We started the session at the Art Institute and strolled down Michigan Avenue to Chicago’s River walk. It was a beautiful summer’s evening and it made the perfect backdrop for this stunning couple :)

I’m so glad that our schedules worked out to fit in their session before the big day! I absolutely love when my couples opt to do an engagement session for multiple reasons. Firstly, how often do you get to have professional, romantic photos of you and your beau?! I still have my e-session photos framed all over our home. I think it’s really important to capture such a special time in your lives, in such an effortless way. Secondly, it’s super beneficial for the wedding day! I find that my couples that I get to connect with over their e-session are always instantly relaxed when they see me on the big day. The entire evening is all about creating wonderful memories that will be captured for years to come.
