Liz and Richard's Downtown Chicago Hotel InterContinental Wedding Photography

As Liz worked off her pre-ceremony jitters with a glass of Champagne and her favorite ladies, her daughters, danced around in their custom MoniRose dresses admired their makeup (so grown up!!) and gushed over how beautiful their mommy looked. It was a sweet time filled with anticipation.

A Meaningful Hotel Intercontinental Ceremony

Liz and Richard's Hotel Intercontinental wedding was filled with some especially meaningful things. They included some playful vows that had everyone grinning, and carved out some wonderful time for champagne toasts and cake with their guests.

Downtown Chicago Love

True to who they are, we grabbed photos walking around one of their favorite cities and, as we walked, Liz pulled off her shoes and said "they're so beautiful, but man are my feet killing me!" And as they walked along Michigan Avenue, Liz in bare feet, Richard kindly holding her bouquet, I fell in love with the way they loved each other.

Liz loves Richard full of fire, energy, and passion. She's a barefoot in a gown kind of love. And Richard loves Liz with a serene and tender appreciation. He's the holding the bouquet kind of love.

Liz and Richard, congratulations! You had such a beautiful day and we're honored to have been a part of it!
