Millennium Park and Chicago Cultural Center engagement photos | Ridhwana & Jason

This happy couple wanted something different for their engagement photos.  I suggested the Chicago Cultural Center, it’s a beautiful place not only for photos, but it also has several free museums inside and it’s open to the public 7 days a week!  Since Millennium Park is right across the street, we made a quick stop there too 🙂





Michigan Shores Club wedding photos | Wilmette wedding reception venue | Alyssa & Lewis

I love super chill couples…bonus points to said chill couple who does a first look, and has a bunch of fun people in their wedding party! First look, ceremony and reception all at the stunningly gorgeous Michigan Shores Club in Wilmette.

Favorite wedding related purchase – our cake topper (so our pup was part of our big day)

Favorite wedding memory – Lewis’s was seeing me for the first time, mine was having my grandma help me get ready, she’ll never know how truly special that was for me.

Funny moments – when our ring bearer/nephew let out the biggest sigh during a quiet moment during our ceremony. Also when our best man lost the rings, he put them down and never picked them back up – thank goodness one of the venue employees found them.

All of our vendors were amazing and went above and beyond to help make our day perfect! I never thought I could be so in love with flowers – Kathleen is beyond talented and made my ideas come to life in a way I could’ve never even dreamed of.

 And Hilda, you never had a dull moment and really kept our bridal party laughing… Everyone still talks about how much fun you and Carol were to work with!

Any advice for couples – leave your phone at home or just kept away, put someone else in charge of everything and just enjoy your day – it all goes by so fast. We were lucky enough to be able to eat our dinner while everyone was at cocktail hour – best idea ever because then while everyone was eating dinner we were able to go around to all our guests tables.’
