We love when we’re so adored by a couple, they take us along to their wedding. Lauren + CJ were no exception when they decided to take us along to their windy city wedding.
The day started at the Langham Hotel, downtown Chicago overlooking the river. Here the girls were pampered with hair and make-up before they slipped into their gowns, while the men suited up in preparation for the big day. Lauren looked stunning in her fitted trumpet gown, with delicate lace, her trusty Toms, and a gorgeous sash, she truly did make a beautiful bride.
After this, the two met outdoors for a first look and a moment alone together before their big day started. CJ was simply stunned by his breathtaking bride, and the two were taken around town by M&M Limo with their bridal party to take pictures and let loose before their ceremony.
Next, they all arrived at Moody Church to say I do. CJ was teary eyed as Lauren walked down the aisle, and from that moment until the kiss the two couldn’t stop smiling.
Their reception at the Chicago Cultural Center was absolutely to die for! With event design and floral by Revel Global Events, lush linens from Hall’s, and day of coordination from Shannon Gail Weddings and Events it was like walking into a dream! From the amazing dome of the venue, to the perfect petals on every table, the whole event came together flawlessly. The two entered to cut their cake from Alliance Bakery, enjoyed toasts from family and friends, and spent the rest of the night dancing to tunes provided by Toast & Jam.
We feel so honored Lauren + CJ chose us to capture their big day, and we wish them nothing but the best on their new adventure as husband and wife!by
