This Saint James Chapel Chicago wedding was absolutely gorgeous!! The moment I met the couple for the first time, I knew we are a perfect fit. Their love story, personalities, and attention to detail got me right away.
We started the day with David getting ready at the Ritz Carlton Chicago, right on Magnificent Mile, and the views from his suite were absolutely breath taking. Eva got ready at their gorgeous apartment in River North, surrounded by her family and closest friends. The place was filled with beautiful light, and we were able to capture gorgeous photos.
The couple chose not to do a first look, so it was a really emotional moment when David saw Eva when walking down the aisle with her dad. The Chapel they chose for their wedding day – St James Chapel– sits in an istoric building in the heart of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile. The French Gothic arhitecture and the windows depict, in glowing color and intricate details, makes it a hidden gem in Chicago.
I really loved that they were able to secure a Rolls Royce and we got so many gorgeous photos in the Financial District, in The Chicago Loop. From there, we went to the Kinzie Bridge street, a very well known and popular spot in Chicago, which has a special meaning to the couple. Our last stop, was North Ave Beach, a perfect spot to get that breath taking Chicago Skyline. Our day, couldn’t end better than with a reception at Marchesa Chicago, an authentic French Restaurant in downtown Chicago.
