So much to share from Jennie + Auggie’s wedding! I don’t even know where to start! How about the cool wedding photos we took at Union Station? Or the blue PSY tuxedo jacket Auggie put on to lead a Gangnam Style Dance at the wedding reception? I guess I’ll share one of my favorite photos from their wedding ceremony location: University of Chicago’s Rockefeller Memorial Chapel!
One often overlooked part of a great wedding: A phenomenal TEAM of wedding professionals…and I was thrilled that Jennie followed almost all of my recommendations! I love working with them!

We started Jennie’s wedding photos at her Chicago apartment- Love this cape she had purchased BHLDN – if you have never been to BHLDN…it’s worth the trip…their Chicago store is just breathtaking! Check out some photos I had taken when BHLDN opened their store!
Jennie loves her shoes…so it was only fitting that she wore a stunning pair of Christian Louboutin!

It all comes together in this picture!
Took some photos of Auggie at Union Station just so he didn’t feel left out- Their Hugo Boss suits made me wanting one! And Forget Me Knodt’s boutonniere is perfect!

Beautiful columns of Union Station!
We departed from Union Station and headed to the University of Chicago’s Rockefeller Memorial Chapel!
The University of Chicago has really cool architecture all over their campus…these ‘windows’ made for a cool groomsmen and bridesmaid photo-

Caught Auggie laughing with Pastor Michael from New Community Covenant Church
Love this shot by my second shooter Tom! Captures the majestic beauty of Rockefeller Memorial Chapel!
Auggie was so excited…Pastor Michael had to restrain him!
After the ceremony…I just HAD to take a few more photos at Rockefeller Chapel! I definitely wanted to showcase her veil in a picture!
Meanwhile…Lauren and her team had pulled all the details together at Germania Place!
Jennie & Auggie’s scrabble tiles that were featured in their proposal AND engagement photos made an appearance!
Their wedding cake with the Germania Place chandelier hanging above!
Forget Me Knodt centerpieces! Love the Manzanita trees!
First dance in Germania Place! So elegant and classy!
Germania Place has a balcony view that makes for a great photo!
And in the middle of dancing…Auggie put on a blue tuxedo jacket, sunglasses and a bowtie…and started leading a Gangnam Style dance!
Young and old were dancing…Gangnam Style!
Thanks go Jennie + Auggie for having me as your wedding photographer! It was such a special day! I’m so happy for you both and am glad to hear about your placements for next year! Merry Christmas!
