For this Wedding Wednesday we visit the Windy City of Chicago. This week’s featured wedding exuded traditional elegance in every way. Who doesn’t love a classic ballroom wedding…especially when it is at the Ritz Carlton!
The couple, Michael and Jodi, made all of the wedding decisions together. This included a ‘first look, no look’ before the ceremony was to take place. The anticipation of first seeing each other was made all the more present upon the bride’s walk down the aisle where the couple recited self-written vows beneath the chuppah.
For the reception, the grand ballroom of the Ritz Carlton Chicago was decorated in vibrant tones of purples and greens with stately touches of gold. A cocktail hour for guests allowed family to take portraits before joining the reception. The bride in her style 617 wedding gown by Anne Barge looked radiant on her special day. Photographer Julia Franzosa beautifully captured the love of the couple as they celebrated with their union surrounded by those dearest to them. We hope to share some of that special love through this post ~ Enjoy! xo
