Photographer Notes: This wedding really was a quintessential Chicago wedding that had the ceremony and reception right along the river at the Chicago River Roast, with one of the best views of the city! After the ceremony, the wedding party and newly married couple hopped on a river boat and made a surprise entrance for their cocktail hour! The whole entire day was so much to photograph with plenty of gorgeous city backdrops along the way. We really spent most of our time along the Chicago Riverwalk, weaving in and out of architectural spots and bridges. Thanks so much to the couple for such an amazing time!
