My last wedding of 2019 was SO incredible. I couldn’t have had a sweeter couple, a more beautiful November day in downtown Chicago, or excited dance floor to photograph! Haley and Ben had a stunning black tie Jewish wedding held at the London House in downtown Chicago. The ceremony and reception were elegantly decorated with hues of white and green. This included a completely white chuppah, long stem calla lilies in tall crystal vases, and ghost chairs – a totally clean, timeless look! The bride, Haley, looked absolutely gorgeous in her mermaid style Vera Wang bridal gown. She hid it from everyone so that she could have a special first look with her bridesmaids as well as her father, and it was the sweetest moment to witness! I love a good first look with dad! Haley chose to wear her hair is a slicked back low pony that was incredibly chic and bold. Ben and his groomsmen looked dapper in their tuxes from The Black Tux with elegant black bow ties! They shared their own first look with one another at the top of the London House roof under the cupola and then we made our way down to the river walk and Wrigley building for portraits. It was truly a beautiful day from start to finish! Thank you Haley and Ben for allowing me to be a part of your special day. I will always remember it fondly and wish you guys the absolute best in the future 🙂 Congrats Mr and Mrs Kessler!
