Jami and Kerri are an amazing couple; they are so gorgeous and in love. Some of my favorite shots of the year came from this Chicago, Illinois wedding day.
Their wedding took place on October 7th at Firehouse Chicago, one of my all time favorite U.S. wedding venues in the quaint neighborhood of Andersonville. Jami’s pale blue and lace wedding dress was handmade. Kerri wore a dapper suit from J. Crew with a handsome bow tie and boutonniere. Hillary Bullock officiated their outdoor ceremony under the ivy where Jami walked down the staircase to meet Kerri and a knot tying ceremony was included to signify their union. Jami and Kerri had guests take Polaroids and add them to their guest book for a keepsake. Moscow Mules were served in copper mugs during the cocktail hour. Their reception tables with pops of yellow, gray and white flowers from eco-friendly Fab Flora were gorgeous. There was also a beautiful naked cake accented with succulents by Big Delicious Planet. After an amazing dance party J&K had a sparkler exit and left in a hired Tesla.
