I don’t think you could have asked for a more perfect September day in the windy city. This past Saturday began downtown at a private residence just a block from the lake. With sun bursting in, Ryan and Amanda began their day together with a first look and a quick getaway with the wedding party for some photos. It really was as much fun hanging out with this crew as it looks in the photos, haha.

Fast forward to the ceremony and reception site and it was nothing short of amazing! Just off the Chicago river, amid a beautifully renovated industrial and manufacturing warehouse, these two celebrated their marriage with friends and family. There was certainly no shortage of dancing and incredible music, and I was so very honored to witness it all.

Thank you again, A&R - y’all know how to throw a party, and I can’t believe I had the privilege of documenting it, thank you!!

Vendor Love!
