Glessner House & New Furama Wedding in Chicago, IL: Stephanie & Steve

So much to tell about this day and these two! The day began getting with them getting ready at the Hilton downtown with their bridesmaids and groomsmen, oh and Daisy (their sweet pup) was there too! Once they were ready, we all got down to their beautiful staircase lobby for a first look.

It was hot, so freaking hot that day. They wanted to stay close so we simply crossed the street for their photos, yay! Then onto the school bus and headed to Glessner House Museum for their ceremony. As they were about to start the processional, it started to rain :( we of course, turned to the internet. There are apps nowadays that predict the exact moment the rain will stop. I checked Dark Sky and we were 9 minutes away from dryness. The plan was hatched and once the rain stopped, the groomsmen (armed with paper towels) dried every seat and the wedding began. My favorite part was the calligraphy portion, so awesome!

Everyone hopped back on the bus and headed towards New Furama Restaurant for the reception. Stephanie changed outfits for the tea ceremony. What a wonderful way to honor their families and for the family members to wish them well in their marriage.

The cake was sweet and nerdy, the dancing was very heartfelt. Steve also danced with his grandmother to her weddings song! I also found my new favorite tradition, table toasts! Stephanie, Steve, their parents and wedding party went to each table to toast with the guests; everyone loved it! The photo booth was a huge hit too, I love the shenanigans that ensue late at night.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for choosing us to capture your day And what an incredible day it was. Best wishes in absolutely everything you do!
