jeff + emily | maggianos chicago wedding

Ohhhhhh yes friends – it is time to check out Jeff + Emily’s stunning Maggiano’s Downtown Chicago wedding – packed with some top city spots, so many gorgeous details, lovely summer light, one stunning church, and 2 incredibly happy newlyweds : ) Man oh man, did we have fun riding around the city – trolley hoping to some favorite spots with these two and their delightful family + friends. From the moment we walked into the Kinzie hotel – you could just feel the excitement in the air – this was going to a GREAT day. And boy was it ever!  Them details guys, I’m tellin ya. I was swooning.Look at this stunner!! Walking to your first look with all them giddy feels.   You two are mighty sweet.  Some helpful insight from the Bride + Groom…

Jeff said his favorite part was “watching Emily walk down the aisle.” I would say my favorite parts were: the exit out of the church and seeing all of the smiling faces of so many loved ones, cruising around the city on a trolley with my favorite people, and the somewhat impromptu stop off at Heritage – those photos turned out to be some of the best. My advice to others is try to relax, be spontaneous where you can, and enjoy every second!   One more quick stop before heading to the chapel… Thanks Heritage!  And what a spot to share your vows – am I right?! I am always, always jealous of my second shooters who hang back for these moments. These two just killing it : )  And then they were married : ) Time to get that party started. And to eat. Really, really, really, well! Cheers!W
