River Roast Wedding Photographer | Intimate Destination Wedding

Stephanie & Alex got married on one of the most beautiful spring days we have had here in Chicago. Their ceremony and reception were held at the unique downtown venue, River Roast. Friends and family came all the way from Florida to celebrate this special Intimate Destination wedding in Alex’s home town, Chicago. I met Alex and Stephanie at the Kimpton Hotel Palomar. Alex and I headed up to the 17th-floor terrace for their much anticipated First Look! This was one of the moments that the bride and groom were most looking forward too. Alex’s raw emotions as he turned around to see his beautiful bride. The high rises in the background just made this picture-perfect.  One of the nights favorite moments were when Alex serenaded his new wife in front of all of their loved ones. Alex wrote this song, especially for his wedding day. Stephanie’s and their children listened to Alex sing about the love he had for his bride and their family.

Thank you for having me along on this very special Chicago wedding celebration.
