rookery chicago wedding photography | antoinette & rod

Congratulations to Antoinette & Rod! It was torrential rain the morning of their wedding day and it looked like it was going to rain all day.  After getting ready at the Club Quarters in Chicago, it stopped raining the minute Antoinette stepped foot outside and the sun was shining!    We had a lot of time after the ceremony to photograph the bridal party, and all we were hoping for was no rain…and it worked!  All we needed was that small window of opportunity…  Believe it or not, it started pouring the moment we stopped shooting!  These two were blessed with one of the most beautiful spring days in Chicago.  Antoinette & Rod, thank you so much for sharing your day with us.  It was truly an honor to photograph your wedding!  Hope you had a fun and relaxing time in Greece!

To our faithful blog readers:  We hope that you like our new and improved blog!  Layouts are better, more photos, and much more fun to view!  We hope ya like it!  And as always, comments are welcome or even a “like” via Facebook is good too!

xoxo Michele & Andy

Love this city… love that it’s windy… it makes for great photography!

The Reception was held at The Rookery in Chicago.  This venue is GORGEOUS!

Antoinette is very detail oriented.  She did many DIY details for her reception =D!

Their beautiful place cards, reception menus, and church programs were all designed by the talented Lele Designs

Antoinette & Rod had San Miguel beer for their reception.  For those of you who don’t know, San Miguel is the number one beer in the Philippines.  They had it imported as  a special surprise for their guests!
