Whimsical Wedding at Cafe Brauer

Rachel and Nick’s Cafe Brauer wedding day was nothing short of amazing! The historic Lincoln Park ballroom dazzled with suspended florals and romantic candlelight, bringing the bride’s whimsical vision to life. There was SO MUCH laughter and love at this wedding! Rachel and Nick, I would photograph your day over and over again if I could. I truly enjoyed every single second of it. Thank you for letting me capture your love!

This celebration took place at Rachel’s favorite place in Chicago: Lincoln Park Zoo. Guests were able to enjoy the space’s iconic architecture while taking in the spectacular views of the Chicago skyline and the surrounding changing fall colors.

The event was planned to perfection by the lovely ladies of Shannon Gail Events and decorated with blooms by nonprofit Flowers for Dreams.

And if you haven’t already seen their New York City engagement session, you have to visit their photos here! These two met and fell in love in NYC and were able to capture their love in 2 of very best cities this country has to offer.
