CHICAGO WEDDING : ROCKEFELLER MEMORIAL CHAPEL + ROOKERY WEDDING PHOTOS // jen + mike

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’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.
