Real Wedding :: John and Krystin

PHWed (277 of 994)

Newlyweds John and Krystin live in the city and wanted a wedding that felt very “Chicago”. They had their reception at Fulton’s on the river, portraits near the art institute, and drove around town an an amazing trolley.

They highlighted the city of Chicago by the beer they served and the table numbers was a cutout of the Chicago skyline. Their night ended by walking by the river under the moonlight and taking some amazing portraits.

“My goal for the images was to create a very classic and iconic Chicago feeling,” says wedding photographer Samantha Simmons. “John and Krystin were so great and even willing to stand in the middle of a busy intersection to nail some portait shots – and boy did they!”

As any wedding planner would you tell, it’s the small things that stand out. The decor lighting, the flower girls dress stitching, and even table setting had small details that anyone would remember.

Their wedding day was absolutely beautiful and everything went smoothly.
