A Wedding on Michigan Avenue – Pearl + Charlie!

Chicago Venue Six10 Wedding Photos

Pearl + Charlie had such a wonderful day for their wedding! You couldn’t ask for better weather as we took so many creative photos incorporating the Chicago Skyline, a South Loop park and their Venue Six10 wedding! It was a wedding photographer’s dream! I love all the clean lines and modern architecture for their Venue Six10 wedding photos! Here’s one of my favorite wedding pictures from the day…on their terrace!

Loving this bridal party photo showcasing a more ‘urban look’ for a wedding picture! As their wedding photographer, it takes a lot of attention to detail to make this photo!
