Lauren & Matt

When Lauren contacted me about photographing her wedding day, I knew it would be such a fun event. I photographed her sister Lynn’s last year and I adore their family. This wedding was after my own heart with it’s bold color palette. (Side note- Lauren actually designed all my new print materials so I’m excited to be showing those off soon too). Both Lauren and Matt are graphic designers so their wedding was CMYK themed. AMAZE! Every detail was considered and so creative. They had their ceremony and reception at the Zhou B. Art Center in Chicago, a perfect blank canvas that was filled with colorful fabric, super cute print materials, projections, confetti:), etc. It was so much fun photographing it all.

A big thank you Lauren and Matt for having us photograph your super duper day ; ) xo

AND, check out the list below the photos of all the wonderful wedding vendors. They were all sooo great.

Lauren’s dad Terrence made these clay figures called Totoros for the sweet’s table. Aw.
