Katelin and Tanner's Chicago wedding at Room 1520 in Chicago's West Loop neighborhood was seriously THE BEST wedding. I loved this September wedding so much! I love getting to travel to shoot weddings, and when a wedding day is this joyful, romantic, and gorgeous, you can't help but fall in love with your job! I mean, I love my job in general because I love photography, but some weddings just bring me so much happiness and joy, and this was one of them! Amazing from beginning to end.
I absolutely loved Katelin's wedding dress. It was one of my favorites to photograph, and the bow in the back was a showstopper. This is probably going to be one of my favorite wedding dresses this year. I loved how it looked when Katelin twirled. It was modern, elegant, and so sophisticated.
There were so many gorgeous details that I loved, from Katelin's classic flowers to all the beautiful downtown Chicago places we traveled to visit on the party bus after Tanner and Katelin's first look! Their first look was so sweet. I loved how many sweet tears of happiness and love that Tanner cried when he saw Katelin - during their first look and later at their wedding ceremony. Honestly, so sweet! I wished all my grooms were this outwardly expressive! We photographed on the Art Institute steps outside, then Michigan Avenue (my favorite spot, which had gorgeous views of Chicago's famous buildings), and later to the Lyric Opera House, which was gilded and gold and seriously so perfect!
After their indoor wedding ceremony, we got to take sunset photos with our bride and groom, which was just seriously so stunning! And their reception was seriously SO FUN. All their guests danced, laughed, and everywhere I turned, someone was smiling and having just a blast!
Congratulations to Katelin and Tanner! Thanks for choosing me to capture your amazing wedding day in Chicago!
