Wrigley Field + Bridgeport Art Center Wedding Photos!
I can’t wait for you to see John + Jilienne’s wedding photos! So many great moments from their Filipino Catholic wedding ceremony to their creative portrait session at Wrigley Field, Millennium Park & the Bridgeport Art Center Skyline Loft! Their wedding was coordinated by Adel from Olivaire Artisan Events. Artistic Blooms did a great job with all the ridiculous details at the wedding reception! Read on for more details! But first…I love the timeless image of J+J in Wrigley Field! What great expression!
We started out at Jilienne’s parent’s house for their getting ready photos. Love this detail photo of her wedding shoes and wedding dress!
Getting her makeup on-
The ladies having fun lacing Jilienne into her dress!
John surprised his bride with some Molly’s cupcakes, bracelet and note! It moved Jilienne to tears before she even took anything out of the box!

The gorgeous bride!
We took a quick creative photo before we left for the church- Love this image in black and white!
A moment with her parents before she weds!
Their Chicago Trolley transportation-
John at the church waiting for the wedding events to begin-
His custom cufflinks with his intials on them-
A fun moment with his best man!
The bridal party had these handmade buttons…what a great personalized touch!
Wedding Ceremony Photos!
On the doors to the sanctuary…J+J letters
John was getting a little emotional once he got inside the sanctuary- I was able to grab this photo while everyone was watching the parents walk down the aisle-
Cute ring bearers!
Jilienne was walked down by both parents!
A perfect sized for their wedding!
The bride and groom having fun during the ceremony-
I ran upstairs to grab a photo of the room
In a Catholic wedding ceremony, the priest blesses the rings, and I noticed the bridesmaids taking a moment to wipe their tears-
Wrigley Field Wedding Pictures! The Home of the Chicago Cubs!
We drove down to Chicago…to a place where thousands of people would have their wedding photos taken if they could…the home of the Chicago Cubs…the historic Wrigley Field!
A photo behind home plate, with the most famous Chicago Cubs announcer, Harry Carey, looking down from above.
A photo of the bridesmaids in the dugout-
The groomsmen chilling and looking good-
We ran into the clubhouse to take this photo! This is where the baseball players walk through right before they enter the dugout!
I wanted to make sure we captured the architecture of Wrigley Field
The seats of Wrigley make a nice backdrop…but I really like Jilienne’s smile in this photo!
I ran around the other side of the backstop netting to grab this photo-
When I used to go to Wrigley Field as a kid…I always remembered the large fence ‘walls’ next to the ramps- so we went up there to take some bridal party photos!
A picture with the ladies-
And then the men-
One of my favorite photos of the bride and groom-

Chicago Millennium Park Wedding Photos!
After leaving the home of the Chicago Cubs, we headed downtown to for pictures with some Chicago architecture! I also wanted some fall colors in there too! We headed to a more remote part of Millennium Park-
Jilienne didn’t want John in the photo…so she pushed him down!!!
The bridesmaids are in the back…with the Chicago skyline above them!
Love the curves & the texture of this groomsmen picture- it’s a photo in Chicago’s Millennium Park that isn’t cliche!
The beautiful fall colors and Chicago buildings in the background- what a unique Chicago wedding photo!
One last photo in Millennium Park!
Bridgeport Art Center Wedding Reception Photos!
We drove down to the south side of Chicago for their wedding reception at the Bridgeport Art Center Skyline Loft! Outside of the building is an amazing place to take photos! I love the urban vibe of this old warehouse/factory!

Another wedding picture with the bridal party outside of the Bridgeport Art Center-
Once inside…I was blown away by the room! Adel & crew from Oliveaire & Artistic Blooms transformed the Skyline Loft! I love the urban brick & wooden timber!
A full room shot with the gorgeous skylights in the lofted space of the Bridgeport Art Center Skyline Loft!
Gorgeous centerpieces by Artistic Blooms! If you notice…the table numbers are on maps…and the flowers are in small luggage pieces! John + Jilienne love to travel…so they made ‘Traveling’ their wedding reception theme!
I love hanging candles! I had to grab this photo of them!
A picture of the head table –
Behind the head table were paper planes made out of origami paper- The planes are part of their ‘traveling’ theme
For their card table…the had the guest names in luggage tags next to travel books!
And there was a table for guests to write notes to the newlyweds on postcards from around the world!
The bride and groom entering their wedding reception at the beautiful Bridgeport Art Center Skyline Loft!
Their first dance-
The hanging candles really make the room feel so romantic!
And the traditional Filipino wedding reception dance…the money dance!
For their wedding ring photo…I decided to incorporate their travel theme! I used their luggage tag on top of a map!
And on the freight elevator down…their letters and a photo from their engagement session were hanging! I slowed my shutter speed down so you can see the walls moving as I took this photo while the elevator was going down!
Jilienne + John…thanks so much for having me as your wedding photographer! I had a great time with you both and it was filled with so many wonderful memories: the both of you tearing up during various moments of your day…the running around at Wrigley Field…the sliding down the bridge at Millennium Park…and the gorgeous setup at the Brideport Art Center! Happy Thanksgiving!
