As soon as I met Jessica and Milton, I knew their wedding day was going to be special. Our first chat was over Facetime—the entire family was piled into a car, munching on Chipotle while we chatted about their wedding plans. From the very first moment, it was clear that Jessica and Milton were warm, down-to-earth people with a strong sense of family. And those values were and center at their Morgan’s on Fulton wedding.
After all, it wasn’t just about two people coming together. It was all about two beautiful families finally joining into one.
Don’t believe me? See the family-focused wedding for yourself:
The Wedding Day
On a rainy September morning, everyone kicked off getting ready at Ace Hotel in West Loop. In true Chicago fashion, the weather cleared up just in time for Jessica & Milton’s first look on the hotel’s rooftop terrace.
I’ll let Milton’s beaming smile speak for itself.
After group photos on the roof and a sunny photo session at Olive Park, everyone headed to Morgan’s on Fulton for the ceremony. And not just any ceremony. This was one of the most emotional ceremonies I’ve ever documented.
Seriously, I dare you to listen to their vows and not get a little emotional.
After the couple and their kids exchanged promises and jewelry, they headed upstairs to soak in the skyline + kick off the party.
And, in true White Quill Couple fashion, the reception was filled with personal touches.
In Jessica and Milton’s case, their reception had comfort food stations (a chicken and waffle station? Yes please!), flowers honoring the bride’s late father, UW-Madison shoutouts (Go Badgers 👐), and an extra special first dance—one that the entire family joined in on.
Kind Words from the Couple
Chelsea, we are blown away by this. IT. IS. AMAZING. Thank you so much for capturing everything so beautifully.
