Chicago Wedding at Holy Innocents Church & The Rookery

When I first met Suneeta and David over the summer, we immediately hit it off… they were just the nicest couple (I know that’s such a generic word, but they truly are such NICE people!!) and I loved the way they interacted with each other. I was beyond excited for their wedding at the Rookery, a venue I had just been itching to work at for ages!  They chose an amazing team of vendors and thus made my job that much easier. I love it when that happens :) Suneeta and David chose photographer Dean Thorsen, of my favorites, and definitely one of the speediest I know. Within just a few short weeks I had the full DVD with over 1,500 glorious hi-res images to choose from. Yay!

Gorgeous ceremony at Holy Innocents Church and officiated by Suneeta’s uncle; I love it when there's a family connection.

This picture outside the church is just too cute! Hooray!

Dean is such an amazing photographer, and no one does portraits the way he does!

I was crazy about the teal and orange color scheme, perfect for fall!

The Rookery at last! There is nothing I don’t love about this venue, but most definitely the glass ceiling, the white airiness of the space and the grand staircase.

Suneeta embraced the Art Nouveau feel of the space and incorporated it into her stationery.

Nearly all of their guests, young AND old, stayed and danced until the sweet end… the sign of a great party!
