Traditional Backyard Tent Wedding in the Suburbs of Chicago

Traditional weddings have always had my heart, and I don’t see that changing. If they are good enough for the royals, by gosh, they are good enough for me. Their timelessness will never lose its luster, so when I see a classic wedding as gorgeous as this one captured by Cristina G Photography and planned by LOLA Event Productions, I feel like I’ve hit the wedding jackpot. See even more here.


From Cristina G PhotographyAs a wedding photographer you can’t help but imagine dream weddings you would like to capture… As a Chicago wedding photographer, you can’t help but secretly fantasize about backyard weddings and beautiful Sperry Tents… magical weddings that only seem to happen in California.Well… if there ever was a wedding I dreamed of photographing, but did not dare hope to ever have the chance to, especially in Chicago, it was Lauran & Marty’s wedding. And yes, without a doubt Lauran was one of the most beautiful brides I have had the honor to photograph in my entire career so far. There was so much emotion, so many happy (and sad) tears shed, so much love, that it was hard to pick favorites to share.

Lauran’s inspiration for the wedding was Southern romance. Southern romance under a beautiful Sperry tent! Navy blue and soft pink were the main colors and the actual location of the celebration was the groom’s parents’ backyard. Early fall – a warm September evening. Lots of champagne flowing in beautiful flutes adorned with navy and white straws with little flags inscribed with the guests’ names – these served a double purpose – toast and find your seat! Paper lanterns and pretty dahlia and ranunculus centerpieces welcomed the guests inside the tent. The bridesmaids wore short Amsale navy blue dresses and the tiny ring bearer matched the theme perfectly in his light blue seersucker pants and newsboy hat!

Nautical Oceanside Wedding

If you’ve forgotten for just one moment why New England weddings are so very, very awesome, this gorgeous oceanside affair is here to remind you exactly why.  The perfect mingling of nautical-inspired details, breathtaking scenery and rich navy blue hues, it’s the epitome of all things classic New England with a dash of puppy cuteness thrown in for good measure.  See it captured by Zac Wolf Photography right here.

From Zac Wolf Photography… Katie and Phill welcomed me to their New Hampshire wedding with open arms. Amazing details, warm friends and family, perfect weather, everything just came together for this big day and who doesn’t love a reception venue that is so close to the ocean that we have time to take mid-dinner portraits with their feet in the water.
