A classic Chicago wedding.  Is there anything better?  Not in my humble opinion.  I happen to get a little giddy every time I see a traditional soiree in the Windy City and this one captured by Erica Rose Photography is, put simply, outstanding.  Think a stunning Cafe Brauer setting, beautiful blue hues and a take-your-breath-away bridal bouquet from Kloekner’s and you'll know exactly what I mean.  The best part?  These two sweeties are sooo in love and filled their day with sooo many special touches, you'll be smiling from here to all eternity.  Join me in the gallery for all of the pretty.

From Erica Rose Photography... I often feel blessed in and through my work, and usually that comes back to the wonderful couples that I work with. Karin & Alex are a perfect example of that. Two incredibly kind, genuine and really remarkable people, it was such a pleasure to document their wedding day!

Karin is one of those classic people… like Audrey Hepburn maybe? Both inside and out she is lovely and (as I anticipated!) her wedding was reflective of that. Along with that timeless theme, the wedding venue was Cafe Brauer in Lincoln Park, a Chicago classic.

One of the special personal touches of their day was during the ceremony when Karin and Alex each opened a tiny box to release a monarch butterfly. The butterflies were meant to be symbolic in memory of Karin's parents, who sadly have both passed away.
