Summer Library Wedding in Chicago: Christine & Brian

Christine and Brian’s summer wedding at Harold Washington Library was pretty awesome. Not only was I excited to shoot in one of Chicago’s most famous indoor wedding spaces, but I was also happy to see some familiar faces. I previously shot Brian’s sister, Emily’s wedding a few years ago.

Christine and her bridesmaids got ready at her parent’s home overlooking Lincoln Park. The living room had a sweeping skyline view that made shooting the morning prep a special treat. I especially loved the moment Christine and her mom had after she was in the dress.

Meanwhile, Justin was with Brian and his siblings getting ready at the Sheraton Grand Hotel downtown. They didn’t plant to see each other until the ceremony so once we were ready we headed straight to Church of Our Savior.

One of the best moments of the day was the surprise of the Imperial Death March playing while their friends brought the eucharist forward for communion. I think everyone laughed out loud. After the ceremony and family group portraits the forecast showed a little rain so we headed to one of my favorite rain backup locations for portraits – the covered area at Lyric Opera House. As the rain subsided we were able to finish up at LaSalle Street Bridge.

I really loved all the reception details with the library theme. The Harold Washington Library ceiling is definitely the crown jewel of the space. We were able to make some great photos for toasts and first dances before the Brooke and the Nice Things rocked the dance floor.

Thanks again to Christine and Brian for a great day and trusting us to document your wedding. We loved spending the day with you and your families!
