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!

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!
