ANNE & NICK
Lowes Chicago Hotel Wedding // Chicago, Illinois
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” – Leonardo DaVinci
Anne and Nick wed on what was truly the perfect Chicago day! This gorgeous couple tied the knot overlooking the spectacular Chicago skyline at the Loews Chicago Hotel, just steps from the Navy Pier. The beautiful backdrop set the stage for a lovely moment in time.
Anne looked flawless in her Alexandra Grecco gown, accompanied by the most beautiful accessory, her fabulous 30-week-pregnant belly. This sophisticated beauty radiated with joy and love, from start to finish, on her special day. She paired her gown with a perfect pair of Manolo Blahnik heels and a priceless, custom ring she received from Nick’s grandmother. Her entire look was not only meaningful and special but absolutely stunning.
Nick looked dapper in a classic tux with his initials inscribed in the coat’s liner. Anne and Nick’s eye for detail made for lovely, special additions to their wedding looks. Everything down to the chic white florals, which Anne picked out, paired perfectly with the classic theme of their wedding.
These two kind spirits were lovingly surrounded by family and friends as they said their memorable “I do’s”, and their breathtaking outdoor ceremony took place on the terrace of the Lowe’s hotel, offering a spectacular view of the city skyline. Their day was filled with love, laughter, and happiness. Everywhere you looked, guests were enjoying themselves, relishing in the moment, and sharing in Anne and Nick’s happiness.
At the end of the night, Anne traded her Manolo Blahniks for a comfortable pair of Birkenstock sandals, giving her feet (and back) a bit of well-deserved rest. As the evening came to an end, Anne and Nick took a couple of moments to themselves, taking in the breathtaking views on the hotel’s terrace, as their guests danced the night away on the floor below. They had bliss and joy written all over their faces as they quietly reflected on their perfect evening.
Anne and Nick, thank you for choosing me to capture your beautiful day! Cheers to a lifetime of joy, health, and love.

Anne and Nick changed up their parent dances and invited ALL parents to dance with their kids on the dance floor. Nick’s 90 year old grandmother shared a beautiful dance with her so, Nick's dad.
Anne and Nick also had the talented, Kristine Steiner do fashion illustrations of their guests during cocktail hour. What a great and memorable gift!
