If you need to know one thing about me, here it is: I LOVE brunch. Plain and simple. But really, who doesn’t? When Lucy contacted me about photographing her Chicago brunch wedding at the Bristol, I was SO excited. Truth be told, I’ve always wanted to photograph a brunch wedding. I love the idea of a simple and intimate affair, and would love to shoot more weddings like this.
We started the day earlier in the morning while family mingled over coffee and doughnuts. Lucy and Cameron kept their ceremony short and sweet, and exchanged their vows in front of their immediate family members. After a few spirited toasts, the couple and their families joined more guests at the Bristol for their brunch reception. The feast included traditional brunch-inspired cocktails and the most delicious food (still having dreams about it!). Located in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood, The Bristol’s event space is perfect for a small Chicago brunch wedding. The room features plenty of natural light, exposed brick, and has a warm, cozy feel. Lucy’s choice of spring blooms looked beautiful on every table. Speaking of which, we were OBSESSED with her bouquet. Designed by the lovely Fleur du Jour, Lucy’s bouquet featured my favorites: Peonies AND Succulents. I couldn’t get enough of it! The bouquet was beautiful for a spring wedding. After brunch concluded, we had the rest of the afternoon to travel throughout the city for beautiful portraits of the happy couple. It ended up being a perfect day and we were so happy to have been a part of it! Thank you Lucy and Cameron!
