Real Wedding: Meagan + Matt

In the middle of our engagement, one of my friends from college (and former roommate), Meagan, was engaged in my FAVORITE city in the States, New Orleans. Tres romantic! When they came back to Chicago, the planning began. Meagan and Matt wanted a modern wedding where everyone could have a great time. They succeeded. The wedding was centered around the celebration of the day. It was a beautiful celebration. I was so happy for the both of them!
Of course, Meagan needed a coordinator but I wasn't available since I finally got to be a wedding guest. (I love attending weddings!) I suggested that she use Marilyn, who coordinated my wedding. Marilyn did a fabulous job!

Meagan got ready in her suite with her bridesmaids. I loved this picture of her with her sisters!


Meagan took some gorgeous portraits. Agnes, the photographer, has a true talent for portraits. While I usually enjoy photos that are less posed, these portraits are stunning.



The groom, Matt, went for a modern looking tuxedo. I like the photo against the brick wall.



The bridal party headed out on a trolley to take some photos.



A fabulous bridge shot. Meagan was smart to bring black umbrellas. They bring out her black sash accent.



I am totally biased Chicago allows for some of the best architecture!



Meagan and Matt in the loop!



Meagan and Matt ham it up in front of the Board of Trade.


The entire bridal party looking fabulous! Meagan's dress stands out with all of the black.



The couple heads back to the Hotel Sax to take some photos at the Crimson Lounge.


Photos of the ceremony and reception will be coming tomorrow!
