 With personality and style to spare, the Chicago wedding planned by one-of-a-kind couple Samantha and Ben was a dream come true for photographer Kevin Weinstein. Samantha and Ben chose to do away with many ultra-traditional wedding rituals and to put their own spin on all the day's details. With the luxurious Elysian Hotel as the backdrop for their celebration, a fresh approach to their nuptials, and with many hours spent getting to know Kevin before hand, the images captured and created by Kevin and his team are as unique as the couple themselves.
