Love is Love: The Most Gorgeous Chicago Weddings of 2016

Posted By Lisa Zimbler On February 13, 2017 @ 3:00 pm In Family,LIFE CELEBRATIONS | No Comments

Weddings are indeed the grandest “affairs of the heart,” celebrating not only a couple’s lifetime commitment to one another, but also the things that matter most in their lives — from heritage and religious traditions to family, friends and shared interests. There are truly no ordinary love stories and no two weddings alike. From special ceremonies, unique venues and stunning florals to unforgettable wedding moments, some of Chicagoland’s best wedding photographers share their favorite heartfelt images caught on film at weddings held in 2016.

“My mother (Wendy Pashman of The Entertaining Company [29] and online shop The Storied Table [30]) didn’t leave out a single detail to create a special and personalized occasion. Every element was intentional and creative, and every time I look at pictures or hear a song from our wedding, I relive and rediscover the magic of that night,” Anna says.
