Fun & Dapper LGBT Low Res Studio Wedding

Nate + Zach got ready together at The Wit in Chicago’s own Theater District. Their baby blue and sea foam green suits were adorned with matching bowties, suspenders, and colorfully-patterned button-downs. 

Their colorful reception at Low Rest Studio featured smokey margarita cocktails, intricate charcuterie platters, a couple’s duet, Do-Rite donuts, the danciest of folk, and a surprise Drag Show that rocked the socks off of the entire place!!

A Very Logan Square Wedding

Barrett + Brian celebrated their DIY wedding with friends and family in their favorite Chicago neighborhood. They brought together Brian’s family from California, and Barrett’s family from Florida, for a weekend in Logan Square, showing off their favorite neighborhood spots to their guests - from their bachelor parties at Starapolska and Moonlighter, ending in a late night karaoke meet up at Alice’s, to a couple’s stroll through Humboldt Park before their ceremony at Michelle’s Ballroom

Their reception featured Big Star catering, a pink Instax camera, DIY vases and decor, a magnificent pink cake, baked by Barrett, himself, and decorated with succulents from Teka Slagle’s floral collection - and lots, and lots of dancing!!! The night ended with an afterparty meet up at Sleeping Village, and a lot of happy people.

Sunday was spent leisurely with friends and family picnicking at the Logan Square farmer’s market, while guests could check out music and other festivities at the Logan Square Festival just down the street. 

Congrats, Barrett + Brian!

Venue:  Michelle’s Ballroom

Savannah Backyard BBQ Wedding

Two weeks ago I took a trip to Savannah, Georgia, to witness one of my dearest friends getting married to his beautiful bride. I got to be there, not only as a friend, but as their photographer, and there couldn’t have been a more charming setting to capture it all, than Savannah.

Chris and Amy began their relationship as high school sweethearts, and after several years on different paths, life has managed to reunite them. Chris has since moved to Savannah to build a new life with Amy, and his new little buddy, Carter. 

Family and friends of past and present were invited to share the day with them, beginning with a quaint Savannah backyard ceremony, and ending at a local barbecue joint, chock-full of honey jalapeno margaritas and a tasty taco bar. It was a good time for all!

Also, did I mention that Chris and Amy have matching paopu fruit tattoos? If you are a gamer, than you might know how incredibly cute that is, but if not, you should seriously find out.
