Kelly & Eric :: A Galleria Marchetti Wedding
There is a new favorite in town – Galleria Marchetti. A Galleria Marchetti wedding was sure to be a beautiful event before the renovation too, but now more than ever it is a perfect backdrop for a romantic wedding in downtown Chicago. Lucky me, I had photographed two weddings there this year and already have two more booked for next year as well! The feeling seems to mutual. Galleria Marchetti and I are a perfect match! But the star of the day is this gorgeous couple: Kelly & Eric! Their wedding was more than you can dare hope for when you dream of a perfect wedding day. Cannot wait to share!
A beautiful moment with her parents that included a “first look” with dad. LOVED it!
The ceremony took place at one of the most beautiful churches in the city – St. Clement.
And we are off for pictures around the city!
I miss fall so much… look at those colors! Every picture is like a painting!
How beautiful are Kelly’s flowers? The sweet Lynn Fosbender from Pollen was the floral designer behind all these beautiful creations. We love working with her!
THAT CAKE!!!! I know! You cannot take your eyes off of the cake! Pure art in edible form! By none other than the amazing Bittersweet!
Kelly & Eric’s amazing celebration is about to begin!!!
Let’s talk about lighting. Lighting is EVERYTHING! So yes, do splurge on a little uplighting… and a great band (they bring awesome lighting!). Pair that up with a great photographer and voila! 🙂 So pretty!
Speaking of great bands, the Lisa Rene band is one of the best I have ever had the pleasure to listen to at a wedding. And super nice to work with!!!
