Black Tie Wedding | Chicago, Illinois

I’ve been trying to think of the right words for this wedding. It was absolutely beautiful and amazing from A-Z. I don’t think Stephanie and Parker’s I’ve been trying to think of the right words for this wedding. It was absolutely beautiful and amazing from A-Z. I don’t think Stephanie and Parker’s black tie wedding could have gone any better than it did. I’m truly so honored to have been there for these two sweet, fun people. Just as Jennings, the best man, said in his speech about writing notes after his trips to see them, you truly can’t put these two into words.

“Meant To Be”

Stephanie and Parker were truly meant to be from the moment they met at the fraternity and sorority mixer. Parker’s dad at the rehearsal dinner said, “You raise your kids to do well in school, to be kind, make good friends, and make good choices. [And each other] is the best choice they could make”.

A Good Laugh!

Stephanie and her gorgeous, sweet bridesmaids got ready at her parent’s gorgeous skyrise home in Trump Towers. There was no shortage of champagne, laughs, and fun. Let’s also take a moment for Stephanie’s Valentinos and her Pronovias gown!

Epic First Look

Their first look gave me CHILLS and made me tear up! When Parker turned around, I’ve never seen him look more stunned and happy!! He literally ran to her!

Fun Friends, Fun Day

Talk about an amazing group! I got to know these amazing humans the night before at the rehearsal dinner. Steph and Parker have a group of polite, fun, and amazing friends.

Their ceremony was held in the skyline room. Everyone cried and laughed as they were told the story of Steph and Parker’s meeting at the University of Alabama, their proposal in Italy, learned about Steph’s Surprise Day, and how much Parker loves to scare her.

Light-Hearted Reception

This group knows how to have a good time! The amazing cocktail hour rooftop had everyone wanting to stay up there all night! Erin McDonald Co. and his team did an absolutely AMAZING job on their reception florals. And I couldn’t get over their gorgeous cake by Cake Chicago! The rest of the night was filled “Roll Tides” and tears when Jennings quoted Grey’s Anatomy in his speech to let Parker know that he’s his person. I could relive their day over and over again, and thanks to photography, I can 😉
