Laura & Mike :: A Wedding at Bridgeport Art Center
Laura & Mike’s wedding was definitely one of the most fun weddings of the summer! It was a joy to capture and a tough one to blog. Narrowing down all the amazing moments we photographed to just a few to showcase here was downright painful! But I know for sure you will absolutely love it! It was pure perfection. Starting with Laura’s elegant Monique Lhuillier dress and all the way to my favorite chairs ever!
The perfect first look location. Bright, but secluded.
A little stroll around the hotel while we waited for the bridal party to join us.
And here we are! I think they love their main portrait location.
The beautiful bridesmaids dresses are made by one of my favorites – Jenny Yoo!
It was my first time photographing a wedding at Bridgeport Art Center and also the first time working with Nicki Eisenstein from BCR Events. I loved both! Nicki is an amazing wedding planner. I’ve worked with many and can tell you without a doubt that she is one of the very best in Chicago!
Here comes the magic! Gorgeous flowers by A Stem Above, farm tables and French country chairs… lots of candles and warm amber uplighting!
Let the festivities begin! The first dance and a really fun dance set were the start to a perfect evening!
We kicked off dinner with a few words from the parents of the bride!
And onto the second dance set and the hora!
While the guests enjoyed their delicious entree, the best woman, maid of honor and brother of the bride entertained the guests with their toasts for the bride and groom.
Words of appreciation from the newlyweds for their parents, families and all the wonderful guests in attendance.
We wrapped up our coverage of the evening with the parent dances and…
…the very first EVER nighttime portraits from the rooftop at Bridgeport Art Center! Many thanks to the amazing staff that made this possible for us!
Many, many, many thanks to all the amazing vendors that made Laura & Mike’s wedding so special!
