Evan + Emily’s Best Chicago Wedding Photos
Now that the bride and groom have returned from their honeymoon, it’s time to post the best photos from their epic wedding day! The Ambassador Chicago Hotel was the perfect location for their getting ready pictures and a short ride to Lincoln Park’s Cafe Brauer for their ceremony and reception! We made sure to stop by the Art Institute South Garden, Lasalle Street and the Chicago Theatre sign as well. Shout out to Misha + her Nouvelle Events team along with folks over at Cafe Brauer for executing a flawless day! Always fabulous to collaborate with Juan and Aga from Hair by Juan Jose + Makeup By Aga!
There were so many amazing photos from their day, it was hard to pick out the best ones for this wedding blog post! Here are three photographer’s favorites up first! This first one was taken at the Art Institute: Love their smiles and her DRESS!

Lasalle Street Bridge Wedding Photos
The bridges in Chicago are iconic and instantly recognizable to those who live here! This photo also showcases the diverse award winning architecture found here in Chicago!
Photographer’s Insight: Love the symmetry and the leading lines in this photo!
LaSalle St allows for a great view of the Chicago River! Sometimes photographers need to climb a few bridges to get a unique point of view!
Pictures at the Art Institute of Chicago’s South Garden
Love this Vanity Fair inspired wedding party picture! Photographer’s Tip: Pay attention to the little details! The spacing, the balance, the poses…all of it makes for an epic picture!
Wedding Pictures w/ the Chicago Theatre Sign
Before heading to the ceremony we took a few pictures on State Street with the Chicago Theatre sign!
Wedding Ceremony + Reception Photos at Cafe Brauer
Cafe Brauer is located in Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo. Which coincidentally has an amazing view of the skyline!
This ring bearer wanted to have his own first dance! Sometimes the best moments are the unexpected ones!
They had a sparkler exit to end their wedding day! Cafe Brauer is perfect for sparkler exits as the front door is really close to the party!
One last kiss to finish the night! What a day!
Congrats again! Welcome back from your honeymoon! Hope these photos help bring you back to all the amazing moments on your wedding day!
