I totally love this picture (above) of our couple because it looks so editorial and chic. But anyway, this wedding is just timeless and classic – the details, the outfits and the pictures say so themselves. Our bride wore a lovely mermaid wedding dress with her hair up in a chignon to showcase her beautiful pearl necklace. If that doesn’t read timeless to you then I don’t know what will. Congratulations Rachel & Michael!
Our bride and groom wanted an effortless wedding day and they achieved that while maintaining the elegance of the event. It felt as if everything was prepared and executed comfortably and smoothly and because of that, the focus was all on our couple who just wanted to finally be wedded together in front of the most important people in their lives. Their photographer even shared that our bride didn’t want to go through all the trouble of preparing but can we all just agree that she just looked so stunning in simplicity! Congratulations Elizabeth and Nathaniel!
The classic and medieval style of one of the buildings in the University of Chicago served as a perfect setting for our couple’s personality. They have always preferred classic styles and it’s not surprising that they achieved this effortlessly through their outfits and venue choices. This album also serves as some sort of preview of their wedding because they want their special day to be filled with classic and elegant details as well. But aside from this all, they did not forget to pay homage to one of the things they love to do together as a couple – sailing – when they had the rest of their engagement session by Lake Michigan. Enjoy this lovely feature and to our couple, advanced congratulations!
Vintage and sentimental items are not automatically similar but it is undeniable that if they’re both present, they do work together pretty well. Especially when it comes to something very personal to the bride, like her wedding gown. At first it may seem that our bride’s wedding gown was intentionally designed to look a little bit old-fashioned but in fact it’s more of a sentimental choice, for a part of it actually came from the bride’s mom’s gown way back. The idea to have a part of your parent’s wedding in your own is something not every couple are given the opportunity to have, so it’s heartwarming when a bride and groom decides to incorporate their parent’s history into the start of their future.
Megan & Michael’s wedding is a perfect blend of traditional and personal. They knew which areas to follow from the classic norm but they did not hesitate to put in hints of creative and modern details as well. And despite the difference between the two styles, you can see from the pictures that it was a yin and yang event as everything fit perfectly and smoothly. From the crisp and gorgeous outfits to the cool trolley bridal car, nothing seems out of place for this elegant wedding.
