Elaine and Rob’s wedding marked the end of my busiest and most creative year ever and I couldn’t have asked for a more kind, genuine and loving couple to send 2016 out with a bang!

Thanks Rob & Elaine! We hope you enjoy these highlights as much as we enjoyed capturing them. Have an incredibly romantic time on your honeymoon in Australia!

Morgan Manufacturing is an elegant industrial wedding venue in Chicago’s hip West Loop Warehouse District. It’s a sizable and unique space which can accommodate up to 650 guests for a seated wedding reception and can host a staggering 1750+ guests for a standing wedding ceremony.

Steve’s Flower Market created beautiful arrangements of fragrant floral décor to adorn the industrial ballroom.

Rob’s Best Man, Matt, regaled guests with stories of their devotion for ‘Seinfeld’ and their lifelong friendship.

Rob danced with his Grandmother, June, who just celebrated her 90th birthday and still has the moves on the dance floor!
