JW Marriott Chicago
I have so many amazing photos from Susan + Dennis’ wedding that I am going to post them in separate blog posts…
Wedding Coordinator: Cindy from Just the Little Things
Bride’s hair and makeup: Holly from Chicago Bridal Hair and Makeup
Wedding Bouquets & Floral Design: Vale of Enna
Videography: Chris and Oliver Cinema
But for now…I want to share my favorite wedding picture on the gorgeous staircase in the lobby of the JW Marriott Chicago!
Getting Ready at the JW Marriott Chicago with Vera Wang!
We started the morning getting ready w/Susan at the JW Marriott Chicago– I love the modern look of the rooms and Susan’s matron of honor (and past client!), Jennie, hung her gorgeous Vera Wang wedding dress in the perfect location!
The bride collects these ampersands and she wanted them incorporated into her wedding details. I put all her jewelry: her earrings, rings, necklaces, veil pin & bird cage veil all on the ampersand!
And I wasn’t finished, I put her Prada shoes on the ampersand too! I love the combination of typeface & the elegance/sexy look of her high heels!
Her letterpress invitations by Articulations Events – I love how they incorporated the bride + groom’s silhouettes into the letterpress! You’ll see more silhouette goodness throughout their wedding!
A getting ready photo with her reflection in a mirror – Holly from Chicago Bridal Hair and Makeup did a great job with her hair and makeup!
The pink lipstick is the perfect touch!
I’m loving this ‘shimmy’ photo – love between sister! =)
Beautiful photo of the bridesmaids putting on her sash – the perfect compliment to her Vera Wang dress!
Bird cage veil and hairpin detail picture
A beautiful bride!
I decided to photograph her silhouette since this was a theme of their wedding!
My second shooter Tom did a great job of photographing the guys-
Dennis is having fun with his groomsmen-
A cool photo of the groom
And a smile on his wedding day!
As part of their gift to all the bridesmaids and groomsmen – they received a silhouette done by Susan herself!
A groomsmen checking out his silhouette with his reflection in the glass-
And then we headed down to the JW Marriott Chicago lobby for some photos on their gorgeous staircase!
I took this picture across the lobby of the JW Marriott-
And if you missed their ridiculous engagement session photos, you HAVE to check out their shoot in the abandoned church!
Want to see the rest of their wedding photos?
Susan + Dennis: There are so many more great photos to come from this gorgeous wedding! Stay tuned! You have so many great details and I want to make sure we incorporate them all!
