Lizzy & Chad | The Lakewood Chicago Wedding

It was my last wedding of the season and I can’t imagine a better wedding to end it than with Lizzy & Chad’s! This one was extra special for me because Lizzy was my own wedding coordinator 2 years ago, and I got to return the favor by capturing her magical day. Watching Lizzy get to finally be the bride on her wedding day filled my whole heart!

These two looked absolutely perfect together on their wedding day, but I promise their hearts are even more beautiful than their looks (if that is even possible?!?)! Their wedding day was actually my birthday (a little detail that I decided not to share with them). Lizzy found out that morning, and surprised me with a donut and birthday candles…on HER wedding day! Just goes to show how amazing and selfless they are!

Every detail from their wedding was timeless and fit the theme perfectly. From the cutest salon that the girls got ready in, to the colorful florals from the Blossom Boys, and the most stunning reception space at the Lakewood, no detail was overlooked. Their entire reception even smelled like Anthropologie Volcano Candles…such a fun touch!

Lizzy & Chad, thank you for trusting me with these memories and for making my 2019 wedding season end on the perfect note! I am forever your biggest fan!

Enjoy a few of my favorites from their perfect Lakewood Chicago wedding!

I met up with Alex and Elijah at Baker Beach on the most perfect spring San Francisco evening for their engagement session.
