Friends and family gathered at the historic Rockefeller Memorial Chapel to witness true love. As Jen and Mike professed their love for each other, their dedication to their relationship and the joy they share together, guests felt the percolation of their love. Jen and Mike smiled, laughed, and teared up as they promised to love one another unconditionally.
The wedding day was full of support from their families and much celebration among their friends. Guests spent the evening celebrating a fairytale romance inside the stunning Rookery. The day was nothing short of perfect as lifelong friends toasted to the new Mr. and Mrs.
Jen and Mike – You are incredible. Thank you so much for inviting me into your lives to document your first day as husband and wife. I feel so blessed to have met you both, and I wish you nothing short of a lifetime full of love, happiness and adventure. Much love and xo – Brittany
Jen looked beyond stunning …. and I just loved her bouquet from HMR Designs.
Jen’s kept her wedding dress a surprise for her bridesmaids, and they were delighted to see her and her beautiful dress before we left for the church.
I love it when my brides decided to have a first look – especially when they do it with their dads because it is always such a special / emotional moment.
Moments later, Stephen, gave away Jen.
Mike patiently waited for his beautiful bride to walk down the very long aisle at Rockefeller Memorial Chapel at the University of Chicago.
Mike and Jen wrote their own vows to one another …. leading to lots of laughter …
And smiles … and even a few tears …
The new Mr. and Mrs. were all smiles as they walked down the aisle together.
Jen’s bridesmaids never let on how cold they really were as they battled the crisp fall day during the photos around Chicago.
Mike’s groomsmen were complete naturals in front of the camera allowing for Nicole and I to capture some great candid moments.
I was completely smitten with Jen, Mike and this amazing door.
We battled the wind, waves and breeze for this photo, and I think it was worth it.
Tiffany and her team at Soiree Events kept the day running smoothly and right on schedule. They also designed the most beautiful reception room.
The first dance.
The evening included beautiful toasts and a very grateful Jen and Mike.
Many thanks to this amazing creative team who brought this wedding together…
