Downtown Chicago | Ivy Hotel Wedding Celebration: Janell + Gerald

A few years back, Janell and Gerald met in the great city of Chicago.  After they met… they worked together, became great friends, professed their feelings for one another at a Chicago Cub’s baseball game, dated, fell in love, got engaged and live  ALL IN CHICAGO with 2 cute cats and the most adorable sheep dog you can imagine.  That’s the exact reason why when they came home from their wedding at Secrets Silver Sands in Riviera Maya, Mexico they celebrated in true. Chicago. style.

They dressed up and hosted a swanky wedding reception at the beautiful Ivy Boutique Hotel in downtown Chicago, IL.  Friends and family met on the rooftop and celebrated the start of Janell and Gerald’s life together with cocktails, hor dourves, a sweets table, photo booth and music!   Before the reception, I met the two in their hotel room for a few pictures before driving to some of the most iconic spots in the city.  In a little over 2 hours, we went to the beach for some skyline views, the Chicago Institute of Art gardens, the Bean, Michigan Avenue, the Wrigley Building, Lasalle Bridge, Chicago Theatre and finally arrived at the party and introduced as the new Mr. and Mrs! (BOOM…That’s what you call wedding photography record breaking)
J+G, what an honor it has been capturing such an important time in your lives.  I wish you years and years of wedded bliss and love.  I hope you enjoy just some of my very favorites…

xo, Annie
