The moment she walked in the room- all her bridesmaids rushed to get their phones!
Her grandma was overwhelmed with emotions-
We took some photos of Dayna by herself in her Four Seasons suite-
This photo in black and white almost could be an ad in a magazine!
Her bouquet by HMR Designs– it is meant to look like one big rose
Last moment with her parents before heading down for portraits with her groom- what a special moment caught in a photograph!
Elsewhere in the Four Seasons, Todd was being photographed by Tom, my second photographer-
Todd looking sharp-
After their first look- we walked around the Four Seasons for some photos with just the two of them! I love how romantic this photo feels!
Love the strong leading lines of the Four Seasons staircase- leads you right to the bride and groom!
They braved to cold to grab a few shots outside!
Walking downtown with the John Hancock in the background!
Had to take a few photos on Michigan Avenue!
Dayna had a great idea to wear her bridal Nike high tops shoes outside! Comfortable to walk in and keeps her toes warm!
While we waited for the bridal party to arrive…Dayna grabbed one of their selfie sticks for a quick group photo!
We only had a short time together…so we took a few bridal party photos around the Four Seasons before the Ketubah signing-
The Ketubah – this is part of the Jewish wedding ceremony that takes place before Dayna walks down the aisle-

I absolutely LOVED this LED lit frame dessert table by HMR Designs! It was incredible!
The details on the desserts- great job by Mrs. Stoller Chocolates!
These custom napkins say it all-
We had to get a ring shot on these custom painted leaves!
