You couldn't get more cozy than Trisha and Scott's small wedding held at their home and in their back yard. And oh yeah, their back yard is Chicago's Millennium Park and Grant Park.
We had a great time with this fun-loving couple, and from their first playful moments and all throughout the day, the theme for their wedding was fun fun fun! We admired the bride's "Pippa-esque" gown, vibrant orange and yellow flora, and the groom's navy blue suit with orange striped tie.
The happy couple escorted each other, arm-in-arm, to their ceremony at the Cancer Survivors Garden in Chicago's Grant Park. This beautiful outdoor area is a gem among Chicago Park District's special event spaces.
There, they met their closest family and friends for what was possibly the smallest wedding gathering we've ever photographed. It was very cute with everyone, including the bride and groom's dogs, circled around the couple while they exchanged vows.
After the kiss, it was hi-fives for all around, and a first dance that literally swept the bride off her feet!
Needless to say, the portrait time for this wedding was very relaxed and accomplished rather quickly, even with different variations with everyone. One of the portraits included everyone attending the wedding ceremony in one group shot!
Then it was off to their private reception at their home, which had absolutely stunning views of the city from their high-rise balcony, where more guests joined the couple for their evening celebration.
The bride changed into a lovely cocktail dress, and nearly committed cake-a-cide! Then after the reception dinner the gang headed out to the after-party at one of their favorite bars.
Congratulations Trisha and Scott, and thanks for showing everyone that even a small wedding can be a big celebration!
