BROOKE + NEIL // married

When I met Brooke and Neil last year I just knew they were going to have the most beautiful winter wedding! 

They planned the entire day at the brand new Kimpton Gray Hotel in Chicago, which is a stunningly renovated historical building in the financial district. The entire hotel is gorgeous, but we couldn't help but set their first-look in the grand marble entryway (on the most beautiful staircase). As Brooke walked towards Neil I could sense all of the anticipation and nervous energy, but then he turned around....and it all just faded away! They both looked at each other for the first time on their wedding day and blissfully relaxed, knowing the other was right there. It was so special :) 

Their ceremony was designed beautifully in the grand ballroom - a classic black and white decor with gold accents - and the reception hall echoed that style with the added warmth of candlelight. Overall, it was such a magical day and I'm so honored that I got to be a part of it!
