I've so missed featuring wedding related photography on a constant basis, and have been grateful for the submissions I've received this past year, while I took a hiatus from Two Bright Lights, where most of my features have come from. Well, that hiatus is no longer and I'm happy to report I've signed back on! Let the wedding related photography continue onwards and upwards...fingers crossed!
One such photographer that emailed me a beautiful real wedding to feature is Monika Thorpe! She is a Chicago wedding photographer, and presented me with this cute couple's wedding. I was drawn in as soon as I reviewed the lovely photography, and this lovely couple. The gleam in their eyes says it all! This will be a two part feature as we have Kelly & Scott's wedding, but we also have their post-nuptial pics, too! The wedding is quite intimate, and then the tempo changes a bit as the post-tying the knot pics take place one week after, in and around bustling Chicago! To see that feature, click here.
Monika shared a bit with us about Kelly & Scott's wedding:
Kelly and Scott had a beautiful city wedding in the most intimate venue, which also happened to be their favorite Italian restaurant, Trattoria Gianni in Chicago, Illinois. The day began at the W Hotel where Kelly and her bridesmaid were being transformed. At the same location, a first look took place. Post Ceremony photos were taken at the Nature Boardwalk of Lincoln Park Zoo. It was the perfect location to incorporate nature with the city architecture. Kelly and Scott looked stunning as they shared little intimate moments during their photo session... it couldn’t have been more perfect!
Please enjoy Kelly & Scott's Intimate Chicago Trattoria Wedding, beautifully captured by Monika Thorpe:
Such a sweet intimate wedding for these two. I love that they picked a little trattoria in Chicago! Many thanks to photographer Monika Thorpe for sending this our way! Beautiful imagery for such an adorable, loving couple.
