Maggiano's Chicago Wedding: RaSheila + Ryan

RaSheila & Ryan's wedding day began at Hyatt Place River North in a room filled with laughter & love. As the bride prepped for her big day, we all laughed as RaSheila cheesed for the camera every time I asked her to think about how gorgeous she looked! Lol. The couple married at RaSheila's home church Greater Salem Church on Chicago's Southside and from there we headed to the Civic Opera House for bridal portraits. The adventurous bridal party was up for the task of standing in the middle of the Washington Street bridge for bridal party photos in-between the changing traffic lights. What can I say?! I love a good city bridge shot.

After portraits we headed on over to the wedding reception at Maggiano's on Grand & Clark. The ballroom was decked out with library books, soft pink floral arrangements and R's & M's- the couples favorite letters! RaSheila & Ryan danced the night away surrounded by their closest family and fiends. What a wonderful celebration it was!

Many thanks to the amazing team who brought this celebration to life...
