Hannah & Matt
HOTEL LINCOLN & CHICAGO HISTORY MUSEUM | Chicago, IL

How can you not adore a bride in sparkly Kate Spade sneakers on her wedding day!? Okay, so it wasn't only the shoes. From the first time I spoke to Hannah, I was completely charmed by her kindness and down-to-earth manner. Also, her laugh is absolutely delightful, and Matt knows just how to get her going. We followed the first look with a fun portrait session in the bride's father's cream convertible Mercedes 280 SL. And while the wedding itself was notably elegant and memorable (flowers by Eileen Weber of Lake Forest Flowers & cake by Alliance Bakery), the indoor 85+ person family portrait that we wrangled and found space for in the middle of a busy cocktail hour will always make me chuckle with pride... we pulled it off *fist bump*! Jewish traditions included a Tisch / B'deken, an artful ketubah, breaking of the glass, challah, and a lively late night Hora.  cheers!
