You guys! I couldn’t wait to share pictures from the Chicago wedding shoot I did a couple weeks ago with Big City Bride and wedding photographer Amy Aiello. Big City Bride is Chicago’s best and most successful wedding planning firm, so when she reached out to me about working together on a branding shoot they were setting up for her company I was so excited. After working in the wedding fashion industry for a little bit after college I fell in love with the world of weddings – so this was such a cool shoot to get to be a part of, especially with Hayley Paige dresses involved! Scroll down for some wedding planning inspiration, photo ideas, and work from some of the best vendors in the industry and feel free to Pinterest anything you love using the hover link.

The day was a real fairytale – her hardworking team of motivated women helped make all the magic happen and it was amazing getting to work with Chicago’s best! We went all out with diamonds, confetti guns, bouquets, invitations, sparklers, vintage cars, and even a cute groom 😉 For all my Chicago brides – details for everything in this shoot can be found at the end of this post, thanks for stopping by!! xo
