Melissa & Aaron – An Art Institute of Chicago Wedding
This past fall I had an absolute blast photographing Melissa & Aaron's Art Institute of Chicago wedding.
After a heartwarming first look on the Nichols Bridgeway, we explored the Art Institute gardens and galleries, finishing up at the grand staircase (which doubled as the backdrop for their intimate ceremony). For these art lovers, it was the perfect venue for their special day. After Melissa & Aaron said “I do,” guests spent their cocktail hour admiring artwork before being led to a magical courtyard reception in the Art Institute's McKinlock Court.
