Stunning Chicago Wedding Portrait Inspiration at Lake Shore East Park

November 17, 2017 | Junebug Weddings

This stunning Chicago wedding portrait inspiration created by Allie Appel Photography features a refreshingly modern take on the downtown urban bride. The autumnal bouquet designed by Persephone Floral looks striking with the changing leaves and skyscrapers as backdrop. Including classic fall colors, the bright oranges, pastel pinks, and deep reds with a simple black bow adds a hint of chic drama. We can’t get enough of this gorgeously modern Sarah Varca wedding dress: crepe and lace, fit and flare gown featuring minimal bow shoulder details and a sexy open back. Styled with a simple beauty look, the bride’s slicked back up do, dewy skin and red lip creates a vision of classic loveliness.
