Bridal Expo 2017 at Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont

Glad to have been part of this year’s Bridal Expo 2017 at Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont.  It was wonderful meeting future brides and clients I’ve previously worked with.  Next to me I had help from my Drone Pilot, Vlad, who did an amazing job explaining the way drones work to future brides.  This Expo was a well planned, well organized and easily accessible show.  Thank you to all that have helped me with it.  Look forward to the next one.

When Rick and Larissa mentioned that their wedding would be at Chevy Chase Country Club, I was excited.  I know from the start that it would be not only a very beautiful wedding, but also very romantic.  Of course, having a wedding party that will do anything the bride says, is very helpful.  Although we’ve photographed outside, on the golf course, after the ceremony, they wanted some nighttime wedding photography, and  they brought sparklers, which ended up being a lot of fun.  And the photos turned up great.  I wish them the best in everything.

Samaneh and Amir’s wonderful, Persian wedding at Hilton Orrington, Evanston Illinois

Samaneh and Amir’s beautiful wedding was my very first Persian wedding.  And I must say I love every second of this tradition, by far one of my favorite cultural weddings.  She did a great job at choosing the right people for the right job.  The florist did an amazing job, not only with her flowers, but with the entire floral design for the ceremony as well as the reception.  Also, the food was incredible.  A great mix between Persian and American food.  The photo-shoot started at the Palmer House Hotel, then we went to Buckingham Fountain, followed by the Planetarium.  We tried to go to all places where we had their engagement session done.  They are a wonderful couple and I wish them the best in their marriage.

Cameron and Elisabeth’s surprise engagement photo shoot at Navy Pier, Chicago Illinois

Cameron and Elisabeth’s surprise engagement photos were nothing if not utterly exciting.  From having to change locations due to very heavy rain and thunderstorms, to finding just the right location in the last minute and a future fiancee-to-be who was running out of patience, I had my work cut out for me.  But in the end, the moment was truly a surprise for her and the rain slowed down a bit, just enough to propose and enjoy the Navy Pier fireworks.  I wish them the best in their marriage.

Georgiana and Dacian’s wedding was exquisite.  Beginning with her very beautifully detailed, laced wedding dress to the flowers and reception hall set up.  It was all done with the outmost style and elegance.  Well combined colors for the hall and great food.  Live music and party people make for a very fun wedding.  I wish them the best in their marriage.
