Stephanie and Justin’s fairy tale began one November night in a quaint little Chicago neighborhood when he asked his crush from his summer softball team to drinks. A year and a half later, he proposed in Oz Park (the same place they met), and they started planning their classic-meets-modern Chicago wedding. With Justin’s love and background in architecture, the School of the Art Institute SAIC Chicago was a no brainer. They fell in love with the classic and opulent ballroom; paired with the regal golds of their wedding, it was a perfect setting for their real-life fairy tale. Their beautiful day started out at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel, followed by an amazing ceremony at Assumption Catholic Church. After portraits in around the city (and popping in and out of the massive thunderstorms we encountered!), we headed over to the SAIC for the rest of the night! Jason and I loved every bit of this wedding!! Truly, truly one of my favorite weddings in all 8 years of photographing them. I can’t wait to share the pics, enjoy!
