ERIN & DANSt. Clement and Germania Place Chicago Wedding

Erin and Dan are married!

 

What a beautiful day — although it was chilly and verged on rain, they had the coziest ceremony and reception, surrounded by family and friends…

 

And of course I was so happy that they were willing to do a few photos around town — who can beat that misty Chicago river view or the elegance of the Civic Opera House. (I love you, Chicago!) Big thanks, too, to Giselle for second shooting!

 

Congrats, guys! It was so much fun to work with you!
