I have been itching to share this wedding with you guys since the moment it was over!!! I knew I was going to love the wedding, simply because I’m crazy about Morgan & Brady… but when I walked in and saw all the beautiful florals, details, and gorgeous loft ceremony and reception space – I nearly fell over. This is one ridiculously stylish couple! There wasn’t a detail I wasn’t totally in love with throughout their entire day!
But enough about all that goodness (you can see that in the pictures!) – I want to talk about Morgan & Brady for a second… although I’m not even sure where to start! From the get-go I realized that these two are the kind of people that I want to have in my life. (Is that weird to say? Because it’s true! haha) They are both just sooo positive, happy, and always smiling! They light up a room when they walk in (which was evident throughout their wedding day), and they love those around them fiercely, including each other. They make everybody around them feel good about life, and about themselves. It is truly contagious. (It helps that they surround themselves with incredibly positive, and joyful people as well! Their family & friends were so much fun!) You couldn’t help but have an amazing time at their wedding, because these two are SO in love, and SO enjoyed every minute of their day – from start to finish… no stress, just pure joy! (Now that is the way to go about your wedding day!) I could really go on forever – but I really want you guys to go see these photos!
Morgan & Brady – THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for sharing your amazing wedding day with us! You made everyone around you feel good about life that day, including James & I. We felt so lucky to be there to document your love and all the little moments in between for you guys to look back on always. I hope you love the photos & I hope we can all hang out soon! (Especially since I realized you and I are twins separated at birth Morgan… hip hop, stick shift cars, wicked dance moves… all of it! haha). Sending so much love & congratulations to you both!! xoxo!
Morgan started the day with wedding preparations at Hotel Palomar in downtown Chicago…
I was a little obsessed with her flowers… in case you can’t tell by the number of photos I took of them throughout the day! Pollen did an amazing job!!
Brady and his guys started their day relaxing and prepping at Trump Tower…
I loved this First Look!!
Morgan got choked up and had to stop halfway down the stairs to compose herself! Adorable.
Then we had some time with just the two of them for some portraits before meeting up with the bridal party…
Morgan was living it up all day! Anytime people clapped or cheered for them, she was all… “Yeah!!!!” – with her bouquet in the air. Love it!
Loooooved the back of her dress!
Brady wasn’t looking too bad himself!
Then we headed over to Kinzie Street Bridge for some more portraits before meeting up with the bridal party at the Lurie Garden in Millennium Park.
You know I was all about the girl’s gray J.Crew dresses!
Then we hit up a random industrial district for some more urban photos. I love shooting in some of the city’s hidden gems off the beaten path!
Then it was time for the ceremony and reception at the gorgeous Greenhouse Loft.
They flipped the ceremony space for the reception – and it looked amazing!
Such a joyful, beautiful day!!
