All love stories are special but once in a while, we come across a couple in love who has us grinning ear to ear as they exude a special brand of feel-good vibes. Brigette and Mike fit in cozily in the latter description for sure. Maybe it’s their general sunny disposition or the overall warm sunny vibes of the photoshoot but this is surely a couple who has that unmissably happy summer feel about them which remains an overall theme throughout all the photographs. Let us take a leisurely stroll across the photojournal of Brigette and Mike’s special days!
The engagement photoshoot was warm and emits happiness like liquid gold. They decided to include their furry family member in the shoot as well to make some amazing captures. The first thing you will notice is how they couldn’t keep their eyes off each other! Brigette looked absolutely stunning in a cream v-neck top and an orange polka dot skirt with violet flowers. A pendant on her neck accentuated the neckline of the shirt and a pair of tan sandals completed this breezy look. Mike looked handsome as ever in a chambray shirt and a pair of olive trousers. The murals that they chose for this photoshoot added just the pop of color to this already colorful photoshoot and matched the vibe of the duo perfectly. The Chicago mural was adorable and was as ‘Chicago’ as it can get! The photos under the bridge added an element of dystopian romance to the photoshoot and look endearingly charming! There was effortless ease that Brigette and Mike had in their interactions that translated beautifully in their images, making way for stunning engagement photographs that can bring in a smile to anyone’s face.
As the day of the wedding dawned, the wedding photographer did a tremendous job of capturing some delicate details like the gorgeous wedding dress, the bridal shoes, and the wedding bands, before the chaos of the wedding day set in. Brigette looked ever so lovely in her powder pink pajamas which were balanced perfectly by the powder blue pajama shirts of the bridesmaids. The quick click seized this precious moment forever in the most heart-warming capture!
Soon it was time for Brigette to slip into her stunning bridal gown. Her light peach wedding dress was no less than the work of art and looked stunning on our bride. The delicate sweetheart neckline with intricate detailing teamed with the flowing silky skirt of the dress is effortlessly elegant and charming. Her hair is held up elegantly in the most exquisite and charming twisted low bun adorned with the elegant floral detail acting like the cherry on the cake. She wore a floaty and long veil during the ceremony, making her look like a pretty picture.
Mike looked dapper in a suit in classic blue, which happens to be the Pantone color of the year 2020! We sure love a groom who knows his style. His tie was a delicate powder blue of the bridesmaid dresses and he wore a charming boutonniere to complete the look. His tan shoes and patterned blue socks connected the loose ends of the look while maintaining tonal harmony. The bridal party looked stunning in a tone of blue which was light and breezy as the air, and they all looked pretty as a picture. The groomsmen wore the same classic blue suits with ties that matched the powder blue of the bridesmaid dresses. The overall color symphony was pleasing to the eye and melodious!
The ceremony was held against the exposed brick wall and the warm lights stringing along the wall created the most perfect golden glow. The simple white arbor did the perfect job of framing the ceremony in the most perfect manner. After the ceremony, the wedding party moved to the terrace to seize some amazing shots against the striking Chicago skyline. The glittery glass buildings against the blue skies teamed with the glam ensemble of our stunning couple stirred up quite the drama for the wedding photographer to capture. This is the time when the candid group shots were taken along with the official portraits and the effect was stunning in that setting. The towering building added height and dimension to the pictures, making them look striking and beautiful!
The couple went for a quick spin across the city in the charming public commute, while the photographer captured some fun and candid moments. They stopped along a string of Chicago attractions, paying ode to this gorgeous city, and posing along the way. The couple soon returned to their reception and the details in the decor had the same quiet elegance and grace that the couple had. The elegant round tables with delicate gold cutlery and glassware dressed up the place and strings of warm yellow lights added that celebratory feeling to the location. Now was the time to eat, drink and dance the night away. The last of the pictures captured the spirit of the couple in the most delicate manner and did justice to the couple.
This Chicago wedding at Gallery 1028 wedding surely warms the heart and leaves the guests with a feel-good feeling in the heart. The effortless streak of the couple ran throughout the day, and they seem like the couple who will laugh and dance through the highs and lows of life with equal vigor. This is the kind of spirit we love seeing more of. Simple happy love which cannot be contained and seeps through the picture even years down the lane. We love!
