Museum of Contemporary Art Wedding | Sarah & John
I met Sarah well over 18 months ago, and over the past year and a half we developed such a nice relationship that by the time the wedding rolled around, she and John truly felt like friends. Through just getting to know her and especially after their engagement session, I knew that their wedding would just be a stunner, and she and John certainly didn’t disappoint! They had, simultaneously, one of the chicest and one of the most relaxed weddings I did all year—a bit of a non-wedding wedding, with a thoughtful and intimate evening wedding on third floor of the MCA, followed by a simple, but elegant cocktail reception. No toasts, no introductions, no cake cutting—just a sweet first dance to “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” from Toy Story (cue a reception room full of “aww”s). For portraits, Sarah and John requested absolutely no Chicago landmarks and instead wanted all modern, urban spots. I picked some spots before their wedding and was so thrilled with how they suited them, their wedding day style and their colors. They are such a beautiful couple and have such great style but also such a sweet, comfortable energy between them that made for such a great shooting experience. Such a privilege to work with these two!
