Cafe Brauer Wedding Photos

I loved this wedding! This couple was so laid-back (my favorite) and simply wanted to have a fun and relaxed day. My favorite, Lori, from LOLA Event Productions coordinated a Cafe Brauer wedding that was gorgeous but still incorporated all their wishes for a relaxed feel. They incorporated some fun and unique touches, like walking down the aisle to “Blessings” by Chance the Rapper and having food stations that represented all of Chicago’s ethnic food neighborhoods. I absolutely loved the bride’s flowing J. Mendel gown, which looked so stunning in their dance photos. The bride had a background in dance and choreographed two sweet dances for the dance with her husband (to “This Must Be the Place” by the Talking Heads) and her father-daughter dance. The photos from these dances were some of my favorites of my career; I love how much fun they are obviously having!
