Allie and Jake are incredible people and I’m so honored to have been a part of their spring Ovation Chicago wedding! With everything going on in the world, they remained calm and positive carrying on their day so they could say “yes” to each other in front of many great friends and family.
When it was absolutely FREEZING outside during portraits (it snowed too!), they didn’t complain and powered through because they know how special these will be in 20, 30, 50 years down the road.
Outside of their day, they are sweet, laid back and caring people, giving so much of themselves in their jobs. Truly honored ot have had the honor of capturing their legacy.
They both got ready at the AC Hotel in downtown Chicago. Everyone was calm and excited to start the day. My favorite part of her details was her heirloom engagement ring. The ring used to belong to Jake’s grandmother and it is now Allie’s. Allie also shared an adorable first look with her father.
Allie and Jake shared the sweetest first look! They looked so happy to see each other and so excited ot spend the rest of the day together!
We did all of their bridal party portraits at the Field Museum campus. Despite the cold, it was absolutely perfect and beautiful! Allie had her bridesmaids in mix-matched bridesmaid dresses which is a trend I love! They had such a sweet, respectful group with them!
BRIDE & GROOM PORTRAITS
We did Allie and Jake’s bride and groom portraits at the Field Museum campus too! Allie looked stunning and her bouquet by Willrett Flower Co. was the prettiest bouquet!
They had their ceremony at Ovation with all of their friends and family. The floral circle Kat made was absolutely stunning and made for a perfect backdrop.
HUSBAND AND WIFE PORTRAITS
I love when couples want to sneak away for husband and wife portraits and that’s exactly what we did for Allie and Jake. The Rolls Royce Ovation owns made the best backdrop!
