Angela and Chris used their wedding day to showcase so much of what they love about their hometown of Chicago. The Trump International Hotel & Tower is sleek, modern, and oh-so-city, so it was the perfect choice for their chic wedding that had a classic palette with pops of bright color. You can totally see they are head over heels for each other and their city!

We really tried to showcase Chicago and the wonderful talent born here.
Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? I love that we kept it small and intimate. By doing this, we could do special things for our guests that really made our wedding memorable for them.
