Katie and Mike’s wedding was such a blast! I loved hanging out with their entire bridal party, what a great group. I will have to break this down into 2 posts. Katie looked absolutely stunning. And I am not just saying that. I knew for sure Mike would get his socks knocked off when he saw her (and his socks are really cool, look for the photo!) Her look was so dramatic, I was so excited to start photographing. At one point I turned around and every bridesmaid that was behind me had a phone out taking photos. It was like I had the paparazzi behind me!
Katie and Mike actually started their day at the Hyatt Lodge in Oak Brook before leaving for their ceremony. We planned out the day perfectly, which left plenty of time to get around the city after their ceremony at Fourth Presbyterian Church on Michigan Avenue. We went to a few locations to catch the essence of a Chicago city wedding, then headed back to the Hyatt Lodge for their reception. Here is the first half of the day, enjoy!
