Couple: Amanda and Nick
Venue: Wicker Park Inn Micro-Wedding
Style: Intimate, B&B Wedding
How you both met: At work, we are both architects and work for the same company.
Your proposal: On a hike in Door County, Wisconsin. The main diamond on my engagement ring is from Nick’s mother’s engagement ring. (The two smaller side diamonds on my engagement ring, the band, and both our wedding rings are from Ethan Lord Jewelers.)
Photographer Notes: Like many weddings from the past year, Amanda and Nick scaled down their plans for a big wedding to a more intimate affair. They picked one of the chic-ist spots in the city, the Bucktown/Wicker Park neighborhood to hold their Chicago wedding. All the wedding events were held at the Wicker Park Inn and the couple rented out the entire Inn for all their guests. The whole day was so relaxed and mellow, and everyone was just so happy to see the couple get married and celebrate their wedding.
I started the day with Amanda and grabbed a few getting ready pictures with her mom, while she was getting her wedding dress on. After a quick first look with Nick, we all took a lovely walk around the neighborhood and followed the light. We ventured to the nearby L-tracks, and all the great street murals and houses in the neighborhood. Afterward, we headed to the ceremony space, right inside the Inn where the couple exchanged their heartfelt vows amongst their close family and friends. After some emotional speeches from the couple’s parents, we all sat down and ate amazing food from J&L catering. Later, the couple and their family danced the night away and had the entire Inn to themselves.
Thanks to Amanda and Nick for such a wonderful time, and an epic micro-wedding!
(Please know that all the guests had Covid tests before the wedding.)
