Modern + Contemporary Chicago Wedding

Abby and Luke say they didn’t know what to expect from the finicky Midwest weather on their March wedding day but, from the looks of these photos from Amanda Hein Photography, we forecast happily ever after! From the bride’s structured, embellished Vwidon gown and the sleek backdrop of Chicago’s St. Alphonsus Catholic Church to the understated flowers and decor from Hello Darling, this affair was incredibly elegant. What we love most about this modern ceremony and reception is that the couple wasn’t afraid to go old-school for a little dancing fun–Sixteen Candles performed retro eighties hits so guests could groove all night long at the Union League Club of Chicago. Just like Air Supply sang, we’re lost in love!
