Chicago Skyline Wedding-Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii-Chicago IL

Updated: Jan 23, 2021

Aylette and Chris had to change their date during this crazy time. Aylette reached out a few weeks before the wedding and I was so excited for this opportunity! A gorgeous church ceremony and an amazing Chicago skyline reception. These two had the time of their life and it shows. Just being able to witness two people so in love and truly happy on their wedding day was such an honor. Seriously, when you see Chris's reaction to Aylette coming down the aisle and you will understand. No matter what happened these two took every event in stride. We had originally planned for some photos to take place at the Planetarium in order to get the Chicago skyline. Of course COVID got in the way. The entry way was shut down to vehicles due to a drive in show taking place in the area. We were on a strict timeline and the options were to run over to the area from our vehicle (quite a hike) or skip it and move on. We debated in the limo for a bit. Aylette wore these gorgeous heels and we realized it would be too far to walk to. Chris made the decision in such a positive and upbeat way and just like that we were off to Buckingham Fountain. I felt so bad that they were missing out on that location, but they were instantly all smiles and just happy to be married. We were able to get so many amazing photos in such a short time just because they were down for anything!
