We need models for a styled shoot!

Calling all celebrants! We need models! As wedding season approaches, so does our need to celebrate the diversity of weddings and showcase how different people present their authentic selves on their wedding day. 

To do this, we are putting together a styled shoot themed,  “What Kind of Bride are You?” and are looking for models (REAL people, not those that do this as a career) to demonstrate the beautiful variety of marriers that exist today. Whether you use the term “bride” or just identify yourself in that role for your nuptials, we would like you to submit! We don’t discriminate on wedding status! Whether you have been married for 20 years, engaged to be married or not engaged yet, we still encourage you to submit and describe the type of nearlywed you would be now. Please click below to submit yourself as a model and all details required to participate:

Thank you for your interest and we are so excited to see your responses and honor all walks of brides!

Sarah+Dan Wedding-74.jpg

CEREMONY: ROCKEFELLER CHAPEL | RECEPTION: QUADRANGLE CLUB | PHOTOGRAPHER: JUSTIN MCCALLUM PHOTOGRAPHY | DJ: FOURTH ESTATE AUDIO | CHUPPAH: CHICAGOLAND CHUPPAH

Dan and Sarah's wedding day was nothing short of perfection.  These two University of Chicago alum had a beautiful day back in the place where they met and fell in love. The intricate architecture of the  Rockefeller Chapel was a perfect backdrop for the bride and groom as they stood under an elegant, natural chuppah.  The ceremony was officiated by two of their closest friends which made the ceremony even more intimate and special. After the beautiful ceremony guests gathered at the Quadrangle Club for dinner and dancing.  The dance floor was filled all night long as Sarah and Dan danced with all of their family and friends. The day was a great start to their new lives as husband and wife! Best wishes to the happy couple.

Morning rain didn’t stop Anne and Nate from having the best day ever with their family and friends and we had a great time with all of them. The day started with photos around the loop, followed by a gorgeous formal wedding ceremony at St. Michael’s Church. Then we traveled to Lacuna Lofts were a stunningly stylish reception awaited guests. You could distinctly feel the love and affection felt for Anne and Nate radiating in the room. It was a dream. This was one of our last events of 2018 and it was so nice to draw it to a close with such lovely people in an awesome place. Congratulations!

VENUE: BRIDGEPORT ART CENTER, SKYLINE LOFT | PHOTOGRAPHY: THIS IS FEELING | CATERING: D’ABSOLUTE | PIES: BANG BANG PIE SHOP | FLORALS: STEVE’S FLOWER MARKET | DECOR + LIGHTING: ART OF IMAGINATION | BAND: HOWL2GO | HAIR + MAKEUP: BEGLAMMED | VIDEOGRAPHY: SOMETHING NEW MEDIA | PHOTO BOOTH: FOTIO

What to even say about these two cuties! We absolutely loved working with Meghan + Daniel. They are super sweet and kind, had a great vision, and Meghan had so many lists, it made our job so easy! We loved the simple elegance of their day, and we loved that they chowed down on Five Guys after their ceremony. From the venue, to the food, to the band, it was a excellently planned day filled with so much love and laughter.

Congratulations, Meghan + Danny! We know you’ll have a beautiful life (and get a beautiful dog!) together!
