We are so excited to kick off this week with Nicole & Jeff’s Chicago wedding at The Bedford! As you might remember from their engagement shoot, Nicole & I first met in law school when she was my Yale Law Women’s Big Sister. She was a year ahead of me & really took me under her wing that first scary year of law school, not to mention getting me involved with the Yale Law Revue (not to be confused with the Yale Law Review, the school’s journal)…this was more think Saturday Night Live, but with law jokes & skits about professors. It was amazing! And we bonded over our mutual love of doing the Weekend Report. She was & is the Amy Poehler to my Tina Fey!
Fast forward a few years & when Nicole told us she was getting married in Chicago and we had to be the photographers, it was like life had come full circle! These guys got married on a beautiful Chicago fall day! They did the getting ready at their house, we did a First Look right outside and then we headed over to the Northwestern Law campus to shoot all around their gorgeous archways & ivy. The light was perfect, the temperature was perfect, and these two were perfect! :)
After that we headed off to the ceremony & then to The Bedford, which is this gorgeous old bank vault turned wedding venue, where we did some more photos of them & then got this party started! It was one of the most fun groups we’ve ever seen & even the kids were burning up the dance floor! One my favorite parts of the whole night was when Jeff surprised Nicole by singing a song to her while playing guitar. Everyone in the room was blown away & it was so clear in that moment that his heart is just for her!
Nicole & Jeff we love you guys & we are SO grateful we got to be there with you that day! We wish you a lifetime of slow dances, surprise songs, and laughs worthy of the Law Revue! :)
SO much love,
