Cassie & Eric // The Art Institute of Chicago South Gardens

Another fantastic weddingfrom this fall. Cassie & Eric are the adorable, sweet, laid-back kind of couple that makes my job easy. They started their day together with a First look above a gorgeous view of the city. They made the decision to bringtheir families in to witness this emotional moment as well. It’s almost as enjoyable to watch the expressions on the faces of those who clearly adore a couple as it is to see the reaction of the couples themselves.
We were able to send some time in the amazing south garden of the Art Institute of Chicago. It is probably one of my favorite spots to photograph in Chicago. It’s such a magical spot. We made our way back to the swissotel for the wedding ceremony, where the same incredible view from their first look awaited them. It was a beautiful ceremony, including a traditional Chinese tea ceremony, and a gift in the form of a baseball card from the officiant (a deer friend of the Cassie & Eric). The reception was, of course, also fantastic…laughter, tears, and a rockin’ dance floor, a fireworks show over Navy Pier…what more could you ask for?
