Big Chicago Italian Wedding!
I was really excited to photograph Tina + David’s Chicago Italian wedding! After spending a week on the Amalfi Coast in Italy a couple years ago…I fell in love with all things Italian! Their food, craftsmanship & kindness were amazing! In fact…I’m looking forward to my trip to Tuscany & Venice to ring in the New Year! =)
Here’s one of my favorite photos of the two of them from their wedding day! So classy & timeless!
We started getting ready at Tina’s parent’s house- I liked the wedding dress hanging on the bed…with the reflection
A picture of her wedding shoes!
A photo of her wedding bouquet!
And when I got closer…I was surprised to see this gorgeous flower…a gardenia! So rare this time of year!
We had to grab a few photos of Tina before we left for the church
Love this photo of her!
A picture of her bracelet-
Through the front door there were these cool reflections…almost like a little kaleidoscope!
At the church David was helping his best man out-
Anxiously awaiting…yet looking calm
Walking down the aisle!
The Father of the Bride all smiles as he gives his daughter’s hand away!
A beautiful Catholic wedding ceremony!
A funny moment during the service-
Photos of the vows-
After all the family portraits were done…we took some photos in the church!

David wanted to join in the fun too!
What a sweet moment!
They seriously look like models!
I LOVE Tina’s smile and the look in her eyes!
They were happy to be married!
One of the highlights at their wedding: The table cards were complete with Italian holiday cakes…MADE IN ITALY and overnighted for their wedding! How awesome is that! I am hoping I can find one in Italy when I visit next month!
It was fun to see their retro 80’s wedding cake!
The bride and groom in their purple & pink room w/Chiavari chairs!
Their sweetheart table!
Another room shot-
Their T & D light on the wall
They had a really cool custom backdrop for guests to have their photos taken in front of! Almost like a red carpet backdrop!
Their dessert table was huge!
And they didn’t just have coffee…they brought in a gigantic Italian espresso machine for their guests!
Fun times on the dance floor!
And one last photo of Tina & David on the dance floor!
Thank you Tina & David for having me as your wedding photographer! The day went by so quickly and I hope these photos help you guys remember all the little moments throughout!
