Hello, my fellow Chicagoans!

It’s Friday & and also the start to the lovely month of November!

While we are excited to move forward into the fall and winter months in this great city, we still cannot help but reminisce on the beautiful weddings we have worked on this past summer!

As we are just receiving back these magnificent photos from Studio This Is Photography at Cafe Brauer – we could not wait to share these with all of you. As well as getting a chance to look back at all the beautiful, hard work our vendor team put together to make this special wedding day memorable.

Bold, Bright, stunning, and magical were the words we used over and over again while flipping through this album!

Hope you enjoy & please do not hesitate to give our studio a call with any questions.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Chicago Illuminating Company

Happy Friday, Chicago!

We are ecstatic to share some of the beautiful photos captured from a wedding done at the Chicago Illuminating Company from this past September.

The magic of this venue is that we can quickly flip a ceremony to a reception while you all are enjoying your wonderful cocktail hour!

We simply enjoy seeing the reaction of the all the guests, and most importantly the Bride and the Groom as soon as they lay their eyes on the transformation.

The ceremony and reception couldn’t have turned out more perfect at this weeding and once again – we could have not done it without all the amazing vendors that took part to make this special day happen.
