Allison + Curt | Winter Wonderland Wedding | Sneak Peek

It’s been almost a week since these two got married and we are excited to share a few of our favorite images from the day!  Although Chicago is in the midst of the coldest weather in centuries the sun was shining when Allison started her day at home getting ready.  Her beautiful Pronovias gown was a real show stopper and paired perfectly with rose gold infused florals and details of the day.  After the church ceremony these two braved the elements as we stepped into a real winter wonderland to take a few portraits before heading to the party.  And to all my winter brides out there… don’t be afraid of the elements, embrace them like Curt and Allison and you will be left with not only romantic moments captured, but a lifelong memory to share.   View full post »
