Revolution Brewing is one of my favorite venues to shoot at in Chicago. It’s a great space for more intimate parties and they offer a fun brewery tour for guests during the cocktail hour.  Every couple I have photographed there has been a laid back pair. Vivian and Mike were no exception. They said they wanted their day to be “joyous, fun and relaxed”. They decided to not have any bridal party and keep everything just really easy. We started the day with the Chinese Tea Ceremony at Hotel Palomar with their families. After, Viv quickly changed and they met on the terrace for their adorable first look. We stopped at a few locations in the city for portraits and then finished at Lincoln Park on our way to Revolution Brewing where they held their ceremony and reception.

I want to say a thank you to Viv and Mike for your kindness and to your families as well. Everyone was so  lovely.

Below are selections from the day.
