Ashley and Nate tied the knot on March 11, 2017 at one of my favorite Chicago loft venus, the Bridgeport Art Center! In addition to boasting some of the most incredible skyline views in Chicago, the open sun-drenched floor plan, is a film photographer's dream!
Ashley and I became quick friends after she contacted me to photograph her wedding. Soon after, Ashley was deployed abroad and in addition to planning her wedding from a distance (with the help of talented Maria from Plum and Ivy!), Ashley had to wait many months before seeing her soon to be husband right before their wedding day. The positive side is that it made the sweet moment they reunited, all the better!
Ashley looked radiant in a Victoria Sodukus gown while her bridesmaids donned navy blue floor length bridesmaid gowns. Ashley's hair and makeup was soft and natural and perfectly done by Makeup by Jaycie. The succulents in her bridesmaids bouquets and decor were such a unique and beautiful choice! I especially loved the succulent escort cards, which were also gifts for the guests to take home. Guests dined on delicious appetizers and dinner, catered by Jewell Catering.
It was a perfect wedding, filled with romance, emotion and beauty! Thank you for letting us be a small part of your special day and enjoy this sneak peek!
