AMY & GARRETTUniversity Club of Chicago Wedding

Amy and Garrett are married!

 

It was a picture perfect day for their University Club of Chicago wedding…and can I just say how beautiful the club is — the Michigan Room is incredible with ornate woodwork and windows (and ceilings and chandeliers). And we walked just a block or so to one of my favorite gardens in the city, the South Gardens at the Art Institute of Chicago, for some photos with their bridal party. (Of course, shooting in the city surrounded by tourists can lead to some fun moments — just check out the guy who photobombed one of the groomsmen shots below!)

 

It was such an honor to capture this day — congrats, guys!
