Kim + Chris ~ Ravenswood Event Center Wedding ~ Chicago Wedding Photography

There was rain in the forecast for most of the day on Kim and Chris’ wedding day – and yet – somehow it ended up being the most beautiful, perfectly cool summer day! James and I met Kim and Chris at Hotel Amalfi downtown to start their coverage, and I knew it was going to be the start of a wonderful day! Kim’s family was so welcoming and sweet (and her nieces are insanely cute!!) and I texted James to see how it was going with the guys and his reply was, “These guys are funny!!”  haha! Perfect!!

I loved that everything about this day was was so Kim & Chris. From Kim’s beautiful short dress, to their unique venue, to the Blue Line seating chart they created, to their food stations with different types of cuisine (sushi, Mexican, American… delicious), and root beer floats – all of it was so perfectly them!!!

After getting ready James & Chris headed out to Buckingham Fountain for the first look, with Kim and I hopping in a cab shortly after. Chris’ reaction was so sweet!! We wandered around downtown some more, doing photos at the Art Institute and then hopped in our car with Kim & Chris and drove up to Ravenswood Event Center for the rest of the day’s events!

These two are so awesome together and being around them all day felt like James and I were hanging out with old friends (just the way we like it)! There were so many touching moments… their ceremony had me in tears nearly throughout the entire thing (thanks to Kim’s brother-in-law’s fabulous officiating)… her dad’s speech was so sweet… and just seeing these two embracing the moments of the day together was so awesome.

Kim & Chris – Thank you so much for having us be a part of your awesome and unique wedding day! We had the best time hanging out with you two and couldn’t believe how the day just flew past us! I hope you guys love these images and they keep you smiling for years and years to come!!! Xoxox! ~Christy & James 🙂


Love Chris’ reaction! 🙂


Congratulations again you two!!!
