Emily + Brad | Back Acres Barn Wisconsin Wedding | Sneak Peek

Last week we had the pleasure of working with Lauren and her team from Naturally Yours Events for Brad and Emily’s romantic and unique wedding at The Barn at Back Acres Farm in Walworth, Wisconsin.  This place and these clients really were a dream.  So many personal and unique details made this barn wedding such a joy to photograph.  Many of the details of the day were personalized, including the thoughtful and touching ceremony, complete with words from guests and a very special scroll made by one of the couple’s friends.  Such an honor to be here and document this special love.  Hope you enjoy a few of our favorites from the day!

Katie + Steve | The Joinery Chicago Wedding | Sneak Peek

Cattura Weddings Wedding Destination Photographer Chicago LA Portraits Formals

Katie and Steve kept it in the ‘hood for their Logan Square wedding and The Joinery was the perfect match for this low-key couple.  Wine was the game of the game for this duo.  The decor inspiration came from the first bottle of wine the couple shared and with the groom working in the wine industry the libation selection was top notch.  They kept it a friends and family affair with the couples close network of friends pitching in to make this evening special.  Congratulations!

Alex + Todd | Loft Lucia Chicago Wedding

 

Wow… where do I begin with this one!  Meeting these two truly reminds me how much I absolutely love what I do.  We met over donuts (I don’t typically indulge) and I knew right away I was going to have a blast with these two.  Todd is a pastor and knows how to light up a room.  Alex is just plain brilliant and I am so excited to see what these two create with their new life in Santa Barbara.  For now they are enjoying Greece but I wanted to get a few of these out there cause they are just so damn good!  The day started at the historic All Saints Episcopal church and after having not one, but THREE first looks we set off an an epic CTA adventure with the bridal party.  After all the travel fun we landed back at the church in time for guests to arrive and take part in a string ceremony binding the guests to the couple in a truly unique spiritual ceremony.  Before heading to the party Alex, Todd and I stopped off at one of Chicago’s iconic bridges for a few solo portraits and Todd almost did a bouquet toss to a boat of strangers:). They certainly got a kick out of it and so did I!  We got to Loft Lucia to catch the last hour of sun on their perfect rooftop and after a little pizza and samosas the dance floor got started.  Between the bride and her Bhangra dance group and one very special groomsmen dance move they that the place bumping. Congratulations to you both and I’ll see you in Santa Barbara!

admin - There were about 175-200 guests and there is street parking though it’s in the west loop so street parking can be tough!

Leslie - I was just wondering how many people attended this wedding. Also, what was the parking situation like?

Kathleen + John | Salvatore’s Chicago Wedding | Sneak Peek

 

We always love shooting at Salvatore’s and this wedding was no different.  We started the day with views of the city at The Ambassador Hotel and took a tour of Lincoln Park before settling in at Salvatore’s for the rest of the evening.  And who doesn’t love a giant cannoli?
