plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country


Carrie and Andrew’s wedding was filled with so much fun. So much. And, it’s incredibly obvious in each and every photo. The dancing, the laughter, those smiles. Beautiful and magical.

Oh, and her Jenny Packham dress? Stunning.

From the Photographer:
Carrie and Andrew were married at theWit hotel in downtown Chicago. Carrie wore a glamorous wedding dress by Jenny Packham and had a few fantastic accessories for added bling. They decided to do a first look on the rooftop of theWit, which worked out great considering the perfect spring weather. We then followed that up by portraits along the river. Their ceremony was inside the hotel, and was officiated by the groom’s dad. The part moved upstairs to the rooftop bar at the Wit while the ceremony space was flipped for the reception. They started the reception off with a bang with their first dance then a champagne toast that definitely set the stage for a dance party. DJ Phantom from WGCI (radio station) got the party bumping as soon as everyone had finished eating.
