plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country


In general, a wedding is a ceremony uniting two people together, and this in itself is a beautiful thing. This also creates new family relationships, in-laws, etc. But I love a wedding that unites nuclear families to create a new immediate family, and when there is such obvious joy about this new created family from all parties. This wedding is just that. The joy is pouring out of the bride and groom, their children, and their guests, and the reception is truly a huge celebration of this, complete with gorgeous flickering candlelight, stunning orchids, and dazzling black and white accents with pops of purple. Add in the crowd that won’t stop dancing and activities for the kiddos and we’ve got a spectacular party for an even more spectacular new family.


From the Photographer:

We had a beautiful sunny day for Susan and Shane’s wedding at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago. The natural and bright lighting in Susan’s suite was perfect for her, her sister, and her mother to get ready in. With everyone in great spirits it was also a perfect space to toast with some champagne to the momentous occasion and gorgeous weather. Getting to know Susan and Shane’s family was a blast, but being there to see their 4 children witness their parent’s vows definitely tugged at the heart strings a little. Shane and Susan then danced the night away in a beautifully candle lit room surrounded by best friends, loving family, and cake fueled kids.
