bridgeport art center wedding | alex + jackie


bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-76 Alex and Jackie were married on a perfect Chicago Spring day, and their Bridgeport Art Center Wedding was one that will go down in the books as the best dance party of my life. Which was basically one of the very first things I learned about them when we first met. They knew the dance floor would be epic, and they were right! They also knew that they wanted to see each for their first time as Jackie walked down the aisle and to share their first words through their vows – which was equally as epic! All day was filled to the brim with love, laughing and dancing – and this overwhelming sense that every person there was right where they were supposed to be. There was just this buzz throughout the wedding of overwhelming YES! They did it, they’re married!!!! Which is always awesome to photograph : ) Plus, any couple who can make out a music playlist with that much Phish so perfectly timed out to the events of their day, how could it not be a blast?! bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-9bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-1 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-3 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-2 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-8 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-4 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-12bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-10bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-13 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-14bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-5 Jackie, you were an absolute vision – so stunning!! bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-17 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-11 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-16 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-21 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-22 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-25 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-30 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-27 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-33bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-28 These guys, what a delightfully fun group!

Most hilarious moment of the day?:
Everyone’s reaction when we really chose Rhianna – Cake as our cake cutting song ? Alex said watching 14 grown men attempting to dress themselves for the wedding at our house was pretty entertaining…..I don’t even want to know… Or that our introduction song to Hearts On Fire turned into an entire freestyle dance for me & Alex…we only planned to play about 20 seconds of the song & it turned into the whole song.

Eeek too many!

Would you have done anything differently?:
I would’ve made sure to spend more time at the dessert table I so meticulously picked out ???

Favorite moment from your day?:
Alex: our first kiss
Jackie: our vows

Any tips or tricks for future couples planning their weddings?:
Regardless of how big your wedding gets, make sure it always comes back to doing what you and your fiancé want to do. It’s your day, don’t spend it pleasing other people. Also, plan together! It was so great that Alex always knew what was going on and had an opinion on everything. It will take a lot of stress and pressure off of the bride.bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-121bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-124 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-126 And then, they danced! Annnnnnd danced and danced and danced! For real, this group really knows how to have a great time on a dance floor! It was just the best to get to capture it all! bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-127 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-134 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-128 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-131 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-129 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-138 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-133 bridgeportartcenterwedding_ellerosephoto_-140This mid air jump shot, all Nicki.
