chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-77Ohhhhhh man oh man did I kick off the 2016 wedding season with a bang! I ended 2015 on NYE and rushed into the 2016 season on January 2nd with Anna and Bill and their absolutely stunning Chicago winter wedding at St. Rita Church + Hyatt Lodge in Oakbrook. Kicking of my Chicago wedding photographer season with such an awesome wedding party, and such a happy in love bride + groom was just the best! Plus I had my girl Nicki along with me to capture all of the happy love surrounding these two on their beautiful wedding day! From the sparkles in the dresses, the beautiful paper goods to the perfect golden hour light we had for portraits – I just could not get enough of these two!! chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-16 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-2 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-11 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-3chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-18 Love, love, love the gorgeous variations in these Adrianna Papell dresses! chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-8chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-4chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-13 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-6chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-7chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-19 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-1chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-9 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-20 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-12 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-21 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-17 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-24 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-26 Stunning, absolutely stunning!chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-27 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-30chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-25 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-35 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-34 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-33 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-32 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-31 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-37 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-44 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-42 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-46 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-40 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-48 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-49 Looooove this exit — just married!!chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-38 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-51 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-52 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-47chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-54 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-71 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-80 copy chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-61 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-76 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-100 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-66 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-83 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-58 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-63chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-104aachicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-75 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-82 chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-108aa chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto-110aa ANNNNNNNA.
