Cafe Brauer Wedding: Nicky and Ben’s wedding day was a classic Chicago celebration, through and through!
They started our day off at the iconic Ambassador Hotel, and their first look took place on the Ambassador’s stunning rooftop, overlooking a crisp, clear, perfect city skyline.
Their ceremony and reception at Cafe Brauer was absolutely breathtaking — guests from all over the country gathered and watched as Nicky and Ben pledged their lives to each other under Cafe Brauer’s soaring ceilings, with lights glowing and candles flickering.
Later, the couple cut their “cake” — a deep dish pizza from Lou Malnati’s — and there were five memorable toasts from their parents, bridal party, and Nicky’s grandma (how sweet is that?!).
Ben spun Nicky around on the dance floor in a first dance perfectly choreographed to Calum Scott’s “You are the Reason,” and their sparkler exit in front of Cafe Brauer’s iconic neon signs was one for the books.
