Wedding Photos at Abandoned Ruins – Marzena + Jesse!

Chicago Polish Wedding Photos!

There are so many amazing wedding pictures from this wedding…I don’t even know where to start! Marzena + Jesse put so much into their special day and it was such a touching wedding – tears were flowing when they made a stop to visit the Bride’s late father at the cemetery! But here’s my favorite photo from their wedding – I love this location…abandoned ruins! Such an urban feel! I have not found wedding photos at this location online…it was amazing!!! It took me hours (literally) to find this place!

It was great to work with a couple that appreciates my creative & unique wedding photography. They couldn’t wait for their engagement session as they love the high end fashion look I bring to my imagery. Be sure to check out their Chicago engagement photos blog post to see their eSession pictures!

The gorgeous bride! I love the juxtaposition of beauty & urban decay…the abandoned ruins made for such a cool backdrop! So hard to find places like this in the Chicago area!

We headed back to Marzena’s house for a Polish wedding tradition- a blessing by the parents…no doubt her late father was on her mind- Chicago has such a large Polish population – I’m surprised this was the first time I photographed this ceremony!

They tossed a blindfolded Jesse like he was a stuffed animal! Timing is everything when it comes to a photo – I tried to get it at the peak of their toss!

Congratulations again Marzena & Jesse! What a wonderful day! You both are such wonderful people and it was obvious by the good time had by all! And thank you for welcoming us to your Polish wedding celebration! I enjoyed all the Polish festivities and food! =)
