This Chicago Cultural Center wedding is a forever favorite! On the most beautiful Chicago day, Lexie and Alex had their dream wedding.

Cafe Brauer is where wedding dreams come true. I’ve had the pleasure of working at Cafe Brauer four times in 2016, and you better believe I’ll be back in 2017!

Chicago History Museum & il Porcellino Chicago, IL Just as quickly as my 2019 wedding season ended, my 2020 season began. This wedding was unique and untraditional, yet so timeless and romantic.
