I have a ton of beautiful moments and details to share over the next few weeks. To keep up on previews from my latest weddings, tune into my Facebook page, where I typically post small previews weeks before I get around to posting full recaps on this blog.
I’m always in awe of the personal energy and creativity that goes into the weddings that I get to photograph. Kristen and Alex had some really fun ones—their flowers were from a local farmers market, and they were mixed in with flowers that Kristen knitted herself. How cool is that? Beyond that, their vintage inspired rings were insanely unique and beautiful, Kristen’s headband was a perfect touch and the backdrop at Architectural Artifacts provided just the right vibe for a fun, laid back wedding.
Kristen and Alex—thank you so much for letting me be a part of such a perfect evening (and thanks to Jose Uribe and Sonia Stein for helping out with photography).
- Venue: Architectural Artifacts, Chicago
- Catering: Hearty Boys Catering (one of the best salads I have ever tasted)
- Cake: Dinkel’s Bakery (right next door to the Chicago Photography Center where I used to teach—I’m a big fan)
- Band: Megitza Quartet
If you were a guest at the wedding, you can view the wedding gallery and order prints in my shop (the password is the bride’s maiden name, all lowercase).
Architectural Artifacts is a great venue for multiple shooters—Sonia shot from above, Jose stood above and behind and I took the ceremony floor.
Love this detail from the Architectural Artifacts store floor (thanks Jose and Sonia!).
More great angles—Jose and Sonia stood across the atrium while Kristen and Alex walked across toward me.
Thanks to Jose and Sonia for the detail on the far right.
Sonia grabbed some awesome dancing photos from the floor and atrium.
Malgorzata Babiarz from Megitza Quartet took a break from singing to show off some dance moves.
I attended a wedding at this venue a few years ago, and it was so fun and unique. As always, your photos are beautiful Allie!
It’s definitely a cool venue! Thanks, Mandy 🙂
I love a lot of things about this, but that venue is AMAZING.
