Winter Wedding at Lincoln Park Zoo’s Cafe Brauer
I met Lindsey a few years ago when she was a bridesmaid and I was the photographer for Maria + Serafin’s wedding! We had a great time taking photos throughout Chicago and I was thrilled when Lindsey remembered my work when she got engaged to Mark!
Before we get into the details of Lindsey + Mark’s wedding…here are two of the best from the day! This first photo is taken at the Chicago Four Seasons Hotel
Getting Ready at the Chicago Four Seasons Hotel
Her Monique Lhuillier wedding dress
Their wedding rings with her grandmother’s ring in the background-
A photo of mom helping with the dress-
Stunning! Looks like an advertisement in a magazine!
A beautiful photo of the bride!
Love this photo of the John Hancock and Lindsey’s reflection-
Bridesmaid group photo!
Meanwhile the guys were having a good time-
Eventually Mark realized he should probably get ready for the wedding!
These guys have perfected their ‘blue steel’ look for years-
The groom and his attendants-
First Look at The Four Seasons
I don’t normally post ‘first look’ photos on the blog…but when they are emotion filled…I can’t resist! Love the marble floor and chandelier of the Four Seasons–
Love this photo- moments like these make my job as a wedding photographer so rewarding!
The Four Seasons has a grand staircase that we had to take a few photos on!
Cafe Brauer at the Chicago Lincoln Park Zoo
They held their wedding ceremony and reception at Cafe Brauer– a beautiful building near the South Pond of the Lincoln Park Zoo. I love the Art Deco details throughout! Here are a few photos on the Cafe Brauer balcony
We took advantage of the Zoolights that are only up during the winter months!
We walked toward the Zoo to take photos underneath this tunnel of Zoolights!
Room shot of Cafe Brauer wedding ceremony setup-
Cafe Brauer flipped the room from ceremony to reception!
First dance photos! I love how grand Cafe Brauer feels!
I ran up to the balcony for these epic first dance photos!
Had to include a photo of my past clients Maria + Serafin! So great to see you guys!
Lindsey was soooo scared! =)
Thanks again Lindsey + Mark for having me as your wedding photographer! We captured some great moments together and I hope you are able to enjoy your wedding day all over again while looking at these photos!
