Enchanting Ritz Carlton Wedding
November 14, 2013 § 1 Comment
Ellen and Rob are charming together.
The way he grins at her, and the way she gently smiles back. We were so proud to be a part of their wedding at the Ritz Carlton Chicago.
The day started in Ellen’s getting ready room. Surrounded by her closest friends and family she beamed as she prepared for the day. Typically, photographers photograph the dress hanging alone, but lately we love the juxtaposition of the brides in their casual clothes posed with the dress.
As we went to meet Rob in his preparation room, we were greeted with big smiles and laughs. We knew this was going to be a fun filled day! This is the room where Ellen and Rob shared their first look and where we did all of the bridal party pictures. We couldn’t have asked for nicer light and a more glamorous group of people.
The ceremony and reception was held downstairs, and was arranged flawlessly by the team at the Ritz. As the night went on, we stole a moment with the bride and groom on the terrace as the sun was setting, photographers like to call this time of day magic hour. The stunning light of the evening was only outshone by Ellen’s lovely smile. A week after the event, we prepared this image for the Ritz, who had the wonderful idea of having a framed print ready in the couples’ bridal suite at the Ritz Carlton in Hawaii for their honeymoon. We were proud to be a part of this thoughtful gift.
Congratulations Ellen and Rob!
