Alyssa + Nick ~ Alice Millar Chapel Wedding ~ Grand Piazza Wedding ~ Chicago Wedding Photography

I’m so excited to share Alyssa & Nick’s beautiful Chicago wedding with you guys!! I feel like this has been a long time coming, and like I’ve known these two forever! (In reality we only first met about a year ago at their meet-up, but became fast friends thanks to our mutual friends, Katie & Shaan!)

I knew that James and I would have an amazing day documenting these two and their sure-to-be awesome family and friends (who welcomed us with open arms)! Alyssa and Nick are both so laid back, and kind hearted – I knew the day would flow easily, with more than enough love and laughter to go around – and that is exactly what happened! There were so many beautiful, emotional moments (I may have cried more than my fair share of times), and also so many joyful, happy moments… just the perfect day all around.

Alyssa & Nick – We are so honored that you asked James and I to be a part of your fabulous wedding day! You two are seriously so, so great together – always keeping the other smiling, happy, and taking care of one another. It is a beautiful thing to see. I hope you love the photos & that we can all get together to hang out again soon!!! 🙂 xoxo!


Love this moment! ha! 🙂

The whole room lost it when Alyssa’s dad saw her for the first time!

Just gorgeous!

I was so happy Alyssa asked me which room to get dressed in that day! These windows were fabulous! So much natural light!


Then off to Grand Piazza we went for the reception!

Cocktail hour had such an awesome view from the rooftop!

Such a fabulous day!! Congrats again you two!! xoxo!
