Trisha and Joey met in medical school and had to complete their residencies in separate states, but they came together on a beautiful sun-drenched day in Chicago for an incredibly colorful and joyous wedding filled with love and laughter. From getting ready at the Palmer House to photos at Buckingham Fountain, a beautiful ceremony at Old St. Mary's, and a gorgeous reception at Butterfield Country Club, every detail was incredible. Trisha and her bridesmaids wore jewelry designed by her friend April Soderstrom, and the wedding cake created by Amy Beck Cake Design was even inspired by Trisha's dress. The floral designs featured a stunning white and blush cascade bouquet for the bride, clusters of bright summer blooms for the bridesmaids, and complementary reception decorations with roses, calla lilies, hydrangeas, delphinium, and sparkling silver votive accents.

This modern couple is so genuinely happy and in love that it spilled over into every aspect of their wedding day. Lexi and Brian met online while he was serving in the U.S. Air Force. Thanks to Facebook, Skype, and ooVoo video chat, their relationship grew and grew. Ultimately, these social media lovebirds became engaged, then tied the knot at an intimate Chicago courthouse ceremony with friends and family from near and far. Their wedding day was so personal, loving, and fun. It even included a memorable flight on the Navy Pier swing. See more of this sweet day and adorable couple at Wedding Guide Chicago. Congratulations Alexis and Brian. We wish you all the happiness in the world.

Brittany and Colin became engaged in San Francisco, tied the knot at Our Lady of the Wayside Church in Arlington Heights, and celebrated their reception with family and friends at the beautiful Hilton DoubleTree Esplanade Lakes in Downers Grove. We loved this couple's scenic venues, tasteful decorations, and fantastic wedding party. Brittany is a teacher, which may explain why she was so patient with us. Her Demetrios gown was gorgeous, and her floral selections were, too. This May wedding overflowed with happiness and beauty. Thank you Gerber and Scarpelli for sharing these wonderful photos. And, congratulations Brittany and Colin. Your wedding was a joy!

This wonderful Chicago wedding began with a romantic proposal on the Lakshore Trail just outside the Shedd Aquarium, followed by a surprise dinner party with family and friends at Highline in River North. So, it's no wonder that Caren and Leo's actual wedding day was just as romantic, memorable, and meticulously planned. They exchanged vows at the inspiring Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii on Lexington, with shimmering candles lining the aisle. Caren wore a gorgeous Carolina Herrera gown and carried an elegant white cascade bouquet. Then, they hosted an amazing reception at the JW Marriott on Adams. What a venue! Everything was picture perfect, including the cake and other delcious treats! The happy couple met as students at the University of Illinois, moved back to the Chicago area after graduation, and just seemed to gravitate toward the city. Their wedding was a celebration of their love with all the style and flair that Chicago has to offer. Thank you Caren and Leo for letting us be a part of your incredible day.
