Katie & Dario

It’s so nice to have time to blog a wedding right after the weekend again! This past Saturday was a very exciting time for me as I got to return to The Murphy Auditorium for another wedding. I love this venue and they love me back as all their magazine ads feature photography from Cristina G! 🙂 Not to mention that a Christmas time wedding in the city is truly magical and inspiring. I cannot wait to share all the beauty we captured. As always this is a mix of images taken by both myself and Konstantin and individual photo credits can be seen in the team galleries on the main website.

The day started at The Allerton Hotel where the girls and Katie got ready.

The ceremony took place at the beautiful St. Clement’s Church in Lincoln Park.

A short limo ride away and we are back downtown for pictures. Best part of it was that we got to our first location right at sunset! Nothing I love more than the gorgeous sky at the end of a rainy day!

The bride’s must have picture was a nighttime shot on LaSalle Bridge!

My must have shot was this. This is the image I saw in my head the moment Katie put her veil on.

Michigan Avenue was Christmas Spirit Central! We stopped right in the middle of it all to capture a little of the magic that was surrounding us.

The image above is my favorite from the Michigan Avenue stop. 🙂

On to our last stop. A quieter tree lined street where the smell of hot chocolate filled the air and horse drawn carriages were everywhere!

We finished right in time for the bride and groom to enjoy a little bit of their cocktail hour before the celebrations began. I snuck right into the auditorium for a few detail shots.

Best man speech.

Dinner followed and the dance floor opened with the newlyweds first dance.

I will end this rather large sneak peek 🙂 with the bouquet toss! Always one of my favorite moments at a wedding. Katie & Dario, I hope you are already lounging on the beach soaking up the sun in Anguilla! I hope you will return to a white first Christmas as husband and wife! I heard rumors of snow in our near future and I have to admit I am kind of looking forward to it as much as I dislike winter. 🙂
