Victoria + Amir ~ Ritz Carlton Chicago Wedding ~ John Hancock Wedding ~ Chicago Intimate Wedding Photography

When Victoria wrote and asked if we were available to be a part of she and Amir’s intimate Chicago wedding at the John Hancock building – I was overjoyed that we were! Small weddings and elopements just make me so happy to be a part of, and it is such an honor to document! James and I arrived for preparation photos at the Ritz Carlton Chicago where Victoria and Amir were getting ready together with their closest friends, family, and their adorable little son, Lucas! It was such an unbelievably relaxed atmosphere and just made for the perfect start to the day. Before they got dressed Victoria and Amir split up into separate rooms so they would be surprised when they did the First Look a few minutes later.

After their sweet First Look we wandered around downtown Chicago in the frigid December temps (they were such troopers!!) to snap some photos before the sun disappeared. Then we headed off with the group to the Hancock Building where they had a private room reserved at The Signature Room for the ceremony and dinner. It was unbelievably romantic, intimate, and beautiful – with their friends and family surrounding them in a half circle as they promised their forevers to one another. (You really can’t go wrong with a view from high above and the city lights all aglow!)

Victoria + Amir ~ Thank you for including us in your beautifully intimate wedding day. It was an honor to be a part of and to document! You both are such kind people – as are your family and friends! We felt as if we’d known you all for much longer than we had and had the best time hanging out with you all on your big day! We wish you nothing but the best and send big hugs to that adorable little Lucas of yours!!! xoxo! ~ Christy & James


Always so happy!!!
