Kristin and Ted’s Drake Hotel wedding last summer was truly gorgeous and very classically Chicago. Kristin and Ted are a case of opposites attract, with Kristin’s incredibly outgoing and bubbly personality being complemented by Ted’s more reserved and sweet nature. Kristin told Ted she wanted him to be by her side throughout the wedding, and during their couple toast, Ted pulled a set of Chinese finger traps out of his pocket to the delight and amusement of Kristin and the crowd. They really are such a great couple, with the balance their personalities create and the different ways they show their affection with and for one another being so enjoyable to capture throughout the day. Kristin and Ted are a preppy, traditional couple—a little different than my usual couples, but I had *such* a great time working with these two, from the engagement session on Ted’s sailing club’s boat to capturing all of the amazing, classic details orchestrated by the amazing Renny Pedersen of Bliss Weddings & Events and the amazing, amazing floral by Cornelia McNamara. It was an amazing team for an amazing day! Hope you enjoy all the images. 🙂
