Diane and Alex’s Galleria Marchetti wedding was an absolute dream. Everything that could of went perfect, went perfect. And these two are absolutely adorable in front of the camera. These two should also consider being professional vow writers because, WOW. Their vows to each other were incredibly well thought out and written. If there are two people meant to be together, it’s Alex and Diane.
I started my morning with the girls. They all got ready at Hotel Palomar in downtown Chicago. Everyone was happy and so excited to be there for Diane. Alex and the boys spent their time at their apartment sipping on White Claws and hanging with Alex and Diane’s dog, Maya.
THIS FIRST LOOK! This is why you do a first look!!! What an adorable, sweet, private reaction and moment for these two. I love how happy Alex was!
Once we finished their absolutely adorable first look, we went to North Ave Beach and Lincoln Park Zoo for their portraits and bridal party pictures. This bridal party was so fun! They were down for whatever and they all looked amazing!
Their ceremony was held outside at the Pergola at Galleria Marchetti. Everyone at the wedding was all smiles. THey event had their dog Maya walk down the aisle with them because she is such a big part of their lives. There wasn’t a single dry eye as Diane’s dad played a song on the guitar and as the two of them shared their vows with each other.
Post wedding ceremony husband and wife portraits are always a favorite! My couples are always so happy, full of joy, and ready to celebrate the night. Did I mention how AMAZING these two are in front of the camera?!?!
Then it was time to party! Alex and Diane had such an elegant and beautiful reception. Their cake topper was the same cake topper Diane’s grandparents and parents used at their weddings. If you didn’t already believe Diane and Alex are amazing people who are truly loved, their speeches given to them were just more proof. It was an incredible night.
Diane & Alex, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your day. You two are truly amazing together and I hope you guys are having an amazing time in Bora Bora! Cheers to 100 more years together! 🙂
