Nicole and Jason are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. When their wedding day arrived, it was no secret how excited they were to finally marry each other! Their City Winery Chicago wedding was everything they’d hoped it would be: a cozy, intimate affair surrounded by their favorite people. The glowing candlelit ceremony in the Barrel Room was the absolute perfect setting!

After their first look at the Cerise rooftop, we braved the crisp October weather together (Nicole in her mom’s vintage fur!). Nicole and Jason wanted portraits in some iconic Chicago locations that were also meaningful to them. I am so happy we had time for a few fun city photos in the West Loop before their ceremony!

Some highlights include Nicole’s wedding gift to Jason, a silver airplane paperweight reminiscent of a spontaneous first date. Another thing I’ve never seen before: a cameo appearance by a certain Frank Sinatra doll during the Best Man’s speech! The doll’s significance is a secret safe with me… you’ll have to use your imagination 🙂

Thanks again for having me, Nicole and Jason!! I enjoyed every moment of your wedding day (not to mention the killer dance party!). All my best to you both in your future together.
