So you've gotten engaged, congratulations! With all the wedding planning, a sure way to slow down and enjoy the process is by scheduling an engagement session. You get to dress up (or down) and explore the city with your fiancé or fiancée. Let the stress fade while one of our photographers captures this awesome milestone behind the camera. 

 

Cassidy and William's engagement session at Garfield Park Conservatory is one of our all-time favorites. The soft sunlight created warm tones that matched their outfits perfectly. We're obsessed with the spring blooms, sweet cuddles, and hard belly laughs our photographer Kristin captured.

Becca and Brandon were wed at Saint Matthias Catholic Church on April 7, 2018. After roaming around the city, specifically in Lincoln Square, the couple celebrated their new marriage with a reception at DoubleTree North Shore at the Hilton Hotel. Becca wore a beautiful timeless gown and tied together her details with accents of dark purple in her bouquet, bridesmaids' dresses, and groomsmen's ties. 

A day full of love, laughter, and amazing details. Congratulations to the Newlyweds!

Cage and Aquarium happily attended the 10th Annual Chicago LGBTQ Wedding Expo on March 18, 2018. The event was hosted at Hotel Chicago.  Rainbow Wedding Network is a wedding show tailored for same-sex couples. The expo creates a welcoming environment full of allies and vendors to help plan the Big Day. Our DJs set the mood with tunes while we met some amazing couples in the midst of wedding planning. Several vendors auctioned off their services or gifts for the raffle, and one lucky couple won a FREE full wedding ceremony!

Venue: Hotel Chicago

C&A DJs: Michael Rodriguez and Sandra Urquiaga

Jeff and Lindy’s vintage inspired wedding was perfectly placed at Salvatore’s in Chicago in February. Lindy’s birdcage veil and fur wrap looked stunning with her classic cascading floral bouquet from Anna Held Florals. The day began with a few intimate portraits at Chicago’s Union Station of the bride and groom. The day finished with a lovely ceremony and lively reception at Salvatore’s in Lincoln Park. Here are a few of our favorite images to recap the day!
