Chicago is my second home and anytime I get to go back I feel like I’m the luckiest. I can stay with my best friend, walk to Star Lounge to get coffee, & visit my favorite foodie spots (don’t get me started). I met Maggie through my best friend & was so stoked when she reached out about shooting her wedding. It could be a combination of a lot of things, but this might have been the most chill wedding day ever, minus when her veil went flying into a pond during bridal party photos (later to be recovered by some lovely paddle boat people). I sat at the head table, I drank wine, I danced, and we didn’t miss a beat. Is this the secret to great wedding photos? Guys take notes. Kidding! (kind of)
They were just two cool people who had been together forever and wanted it to be the most fun day for everyone. Including muah. Thank you Maggie & Justin! Also, shout out to the Fairlie Coolest new venue in Chicago & we were so stoked to cover their first wedding there. Such a beautiful space. Tons of natural light, it’s industrial, it’s glam, it’s every vendor (and bride’s!) dream location. Their team crushed it!
