August 11th 2018 | Amy + Mark | Ravenswood Event Center Chicago wedding
Ever fallen in ‘love’ with a musician after hearing their music after one second? Well, this is what happened to Amy in real life! She walked into the House of Blues in Downtown Chicago and her life changed forever as playing that night was her future husband and his band. Amy and Mark chose that exact spot for their engagement photo session in April of 2018. Fast forward 4 months and they got married in the Ravenswood Event Center.
The weather for the wedding was perfect as the bridal party and groomsmen gathered for photographs at Lake Shore Park before heading to the main venue for more dazzling pictures. The wedding ceremony itself was amazing with the bride looking spectacular thanks to Jill Glazer at Makeup First who did the bride’s hair and makeup, Atelier cigar bridal who made the stunning bridal dress and Bonnie Flowers the florist that catered for the wedding. After cocktails on the deck, the guests were seated at they listened in on the speeches between the parents, bridesmaids and the best man. And of course, the bride and groom. After all the essential nuptials such as cutting the cake, it was time to celebrate with DJ Chicago on the decks and Amy’s Candy Bar serving up sweet treats. Even Mark’s band played a few songs (his brother and his best man) much to Amy’s delight who is undoubtedly their biggest fan! One incredible day celebrating the marriage of Amy and Mark which was personal, full of love and warmth and unforgettable memories for everyone who attended. It was a beautiful day and as a Chicago wedding photographer I have to say that it was the perfect day!
