Megan & Erica had an amazing graffiti filled engagement session in Chicago and I have been excited about shooting and sharing their wedding ever since. I loved planning their photography, hanging out with them and knew it would be a truly special day. The wedding was held at Firehouse Chicago, a great Chicago venue for intimate weddings with beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces. I have been shooting there for years and it’s one of my all time favorite wedding venues in the U.S. If you are interested in the venue for your wedding, I have many weddings posted on my blog that took place at Firehouse.
Firehouse Chicago has a beautiful suite with back porch where Megan & Erica got ready and relaxed before their ceremony and reception. Megan wore a gorgeous long sleeved gown from David’s Bridal and Erica wore a custom made ivory suit with amazing vest and jacket by Cathy Marsom from Richard Bennett Custom Tailors. We went out for portraits around town with their sisters and maids of honor before their outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour and reception.
I loved so many moments from this wedding- their beautiful clothing, listening to Destiny’s Child driving around for lakeside and city portraits, laughter and sweet vows during the ceremony, the “Hate Has No Home Here” signs, ginger beer during cocktail hour, the eucalyptus and deep red floral hues by Pen and Petals, the handmade details, incredible food by Brix Catering, Erica entering the reception to the Ghostbusters theme on the fireman’s pole and Megan making a grand entrance to “Shoop”, DJ Blakbird from Cage + Aquarium playing Britney’s “Work Bitch” and “All Night” by Chance the Rapper, Erica dancing to “The Thong Song” and meeting their very cool friends and family. Thank you Megan & Erica for having me! Enjoy-
