Love this first photo by the Wrigley Building – with the Christmas tree and winter shawl that give a sense of time and place for the bride and groom!
Nothing says Chicago like our bridges and our riverwalk! Such a romantic winter wedding picture!
One of the highlights from the day was watching Amie walk down the aisle with SNOW drifting down upon her! It was a winter wonderland! As a wedding photographer, this was definitely a first for me!
With the high ceilings of the Grand Ballroom at The Drake Hotel, Kehoe created the most perfect tall centerpieces to complete this winter wonderland reception!
Congrats again Amie + Donny! You guys were so great to work with and we captured so many amazing photos! It was hard to choose which ones to include in your teaser blog post! Can’t wait to share more- Enjoy these for now!
