From the photographer: From first capture, Ornella’s sophisticated style and natural beauty made for stunning ‘getting ready’ shots at their West Town flat. Mehdi’s stoic class and sharp wit made for some really classic portraits with him and the guys around Chicago’s historic 3 Arts Club. They reunited for the start of their wedding day at their first look outside of the iconic Public Hotel. It was simply elegant, just like them! A French inspired setting for their ceremony, Nellcote is a West Loop gem of beautiful detail and shiny elegance. Toasts to the handsome couple at cocktail hour where made in the adjacent RM Champagne; a perfectly Parisian place with its al fresco lounges and flutes full of bubbly! We don’t get to spend every weekend with a George and Amal Clooney inspired couple with the couture backbone to attest to such claims.
