Chicago Wedding Photography: Pauli and Chris

I’m so pleased to share the wedding of Pauli and Chris!  These two had, without a doubt, one of the most emotionally touching weddings I have had the pleasure to document.  The tearful speeches, to Pauli’s tears during the first dance, to the crazy fun dance floor with all of their friends and loved ones, it was a fantastic wedding that I will always remember.

Thank you so, so much!  Please enjoy your blog post and I am wishing you nothing but continued happiness!

And a very special thank you to my friend Travis Haughton for capturing great images of Chris getting ready, a beautiful shot of Pauli and her father walking down the aisle, for singing along with me to Miley Cyrus inside the bus with the wedding party and not complaining once (I complained!) about getting stung by mosquitoes during our portrait session.  Thank you!

Chicago MCA Elopement: Caroline and Aaron

Caroline and Aaron eloped to Chicago, got ready at the Waldorf Astoria and planned to visit the Chicago Riot Festival after their ceremony.  The muddy grounds weren’t great for a bridal gown, so we visited the Chicago MCA and hung out with David Bowie!  Well, his photo, anyway!

Thanks so much, Caroline and Aaron, for including me in your day!  Also thank you to officiant Howard Katz for all of your help!  Very best wishes to you all!
