Couple portraits at Olive Park in Chicago IL

I always love second shooting for Heather Decamp Photography. When she asked me to help her out with this Jewish Artifact Events wedding, it was a no-hesitation yes.

The couple kicked off their summer wedding at the W Chicago Lakeshore. Go ahead, take in that amazing view of Lake Michigan from their hotel room (and be a little jealous of all the boats enjoying a lazy day in the Playpen).

Once the couple exchanged gifts and handwritten letters, they snuck off to the hotel’s terrace for an intimate first look and a few moments soaking up the fact that it was their wedding day.

Before long, we hopped on a party bus, popped some champagne, and made our way to Olive Park for some portraits.

Finally, we made our way north to Ravenswood to get these two married.

The couple kept the decor simple with an elegant white chuppah, timeless votives, and some touches of greenery. It set the perfect stage for the deep belly laughs, happy tears, and seriously epic hora that followed suit.
