I spent last Saturday with Breana and Kevin for their Chicago wedding with a ceremony at Saint Andrew the Apostle and reception at Loft On Lake in the west Loop area. We also stopped by Millennium Park and blacked traffic on State Street by the Chicago Theater. It’s been a rainy Spring in the Chicago area so the outside photos are all romantic walks in the rain. It’s all good, we had a blast with them on their windy city adventure.
We started our day with bridal prep at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place with second photographer capturing the guys while I was with the bridesmaids.
In addition to rain, the Chicago area also was serving up thousands of 12 year old BTS fans for their concert at Soldier Field that night. The groomsmen had their brush with teen Korean boy band fame during a picture before exiting the hotel for the ceremony.
Saint Andrew The Apostle Church is a wonderful old church in Calumet City. I certainly love to capture the architecture their during wedding ceremonies in addition to all of the emotional moments taking place on the altar.
Breana looked spectacular in her dress as we photographed her and Kevin upon the altar. I had to get a few from the balcony as well.
The party bus back into Chicago was a wedding celebration on wheels. It was decided to brave the rain for some couples shots in Millennium Park and the some fun group pictures at the Chicago Theater.
The party took place at the West Loop Chicago reception venue Loft On Lake with it’s elegant string lights located behind the head table. A band was there to greet guests and the priest who married the couple earlier in the day (and who also flew in from Connecticut) was there to bless the dance floor during Shout.
