MSP had never been. We've seen South America, Europe. Most of these United States. But not Chicago. A critical error. So we were grateful to be asked to flit across the country a couple of weeks ago to spend 4 glorious days in Chi-town, shooting the wedding of Tina & Mark!
We could do worse for destinations, but hardly better. The venue they chose was simply divine. The Chicago Athletic Association is one of the most beautiful wedding locations we've had occasion to see. A gothic-style establishment, the details contained in this fine hotel are to be marveled at, and the time and dedication put into its restoration has been well worth it. But our favorite part? It sits squarely on Michigan Avenue, across from Millennium Park. Doesn't get much better than that.
And we took advantage. Mark & Tina, as well as being gracious and kind (to everyone they engaged over the course of the whole affair, they're truly amazing people), were also willing to let us drag them around on their wedding day to get the amazing preview shots you see below. Special shout out to Couture Events Chicago for being indispensable and incredible at their jobs. We have worked with many a coordinator, but can't imagine better folk to have with you on wedding day. The day was beautiful and we were honored to be a part of it.
Fabulous couple, wonderful families, gorgeous backdrop...it must surely have been a dream. Here's the first taste of more wonderful images to come of those wild Thornberries!
