chicago wedding photographer | rachel + adrian | fulton’s on the river

rachel + adrian’s chicago wedding ended up encompassing everything that they wanted it to: it was filled with love, lots of laughter, and had an elegant parisian vibe. And to top it all off, it all unfolded against a beautiful urban landscape. i had dreamed about photographing their wedding since the first day i met rachel and was beaming with excitement all day long. to keep with the urban aspect of the theme i suggested the west loop as the backdrop for the first look and formal portraits. the guys even made a stop at au cheval on randolph to sip on a gorgeous 12 year old scotch before hamming it up for the camera. the ladies stepped out onto the west loop streets in their coordinating muted pastel cocktail dresses and rachel was an absolute dream in her bettina gown by J.Crew. her bouquet featured succulents and her grandmother’s broach.

rachel + adrian’s first look was one of the more touching i have ever documented and the red doors in the background added an awesome pop of color! the reception and ceremony was held at fulton’s on the river and i cannot say enough about the wonderful staff, especially the event planner darcey; they made us all feel so welcomed!!

during the ceremony a memorial chair sat vacant in the front row, lit by a single candle, commemorating the memory of rachel’s mother. rachel and adrian also performed a water ceremony to combine together the two great lakes they had each grew up next to. the ceremony and reception decor was nothing short of perfection and rachel’s etsy finds, including the vintage key escort cards, accentuated the parisian theme. The tables were adored with french macaroons, devine florals by flowerlife, candles and feather plumes; it all paired nicely with the sleek interior at fulton’s on the river.

as the skyline turned from day to night the urban lights flooding the river and surrounding streets mirrored the flicking candles inside; guests danced to the awesome beats expertly composed by matt kuhnen of style matters while others smoked cigars and sipped bourbon on the patio along the river. from the lasalle bridge sounds of laughter could be heard as this beautiful couple began their next stage in life… together.
