Margie + Jordy | Four Seasons Chicago Wedding



We were so fortunate to be part of a truly magical and memorable occasion: Margie and Jordy's beautiful ballroom wedding held at the renowned Four Seasons in the vibrant city of Chicago. It was a day marked not only by the grandeur of the venue but also by the sheer charm and love that radiated from the bride and groom. The entire day was a symphony of elegance, joy, and celebration, and we were privileged to capture every precious moment. The genuine kindness and heartfelt warmth Margie and Jordy exuded throughout their special day will not be forgotten by all those who had the privilege of being present.

Beyond the magnificent setting, it was the bride and groom who truly illuminated the day. Margie, in her exquisite Carolina Herrera gown, exuded elegance, capturing the hearts of all who attended their wedding. Jordy, impeccably dressed in a tux, wore a smile that radiated warmth on that crisp winter day.

Margie's parents, Barb and Steve, were especially happy as they witnessed their twin daughters get married just months apart. The love they have for their girls is incredibly special. If you desire to see Margie's twin sister, Carrie's wedding to Ben, we posted an album last September.

Let's raise a glass to Margie and Jordy. May their love keep growing, and may they continue to share joyful moments together. Here's to a lifetime of happiness together.

As their first anniversary approaches, let's raise a glass to Margie and Jordy. May their love keep growing, and may they continue to share joyful moments together. Here's to many more years of happiness.

We can not thank Alison Ross Events enough for sharing us with this wonderful family!

oxxo!

Ari + Josh | Chicago Hilton | Wedding



This extraordinary journey began 13 years ago when we had the privilege of capturing the magic of the Wulfsohn family for the first time, at their eldest daughter, Jillian's wedding. Little did we know that this would mark the beginning of an incredible chapter in our photography journey, as we went on to document the weddings of four out of their five children. Today, this family of seven has blossomed into a heartwarming family of 19, which includes the joyful presence of 8 adorable grandchildren.

What sets the Wulfsohn family apart is the strong connection they share and the deep love that binds them. It's not just the weddings we've been honored to photograph, but the ongoing conversations and correspondence with the matriarch of the family, Deb, that have truly left a lasting impression. Deb and her husband Steve have raised five remarkable children, each of them a testament to their dedication and love. The love that envelops this family is palpable, a testament to the incredible job that Deb and Steve have done in nurturing their children into extraordinary individuals. Our admiration for this family knows no bounds. It has been an incredible honor to witness and be a part of the Wulfsohn family's story over the years, and we look forward to many more chapters filled with love, laughter, and beautiful memories.

It's truly hard to believe that an entire year has passed since we photographed Ari and Josh's wedding at the Chicago Hilton, the very place where this wonderful journey initially commenced with Ari's sister, Jillian, and Brad's wedding. The love that Ari and Josh share mirrors the same deep, unconditional love that permeates every corner of this remarkable family. Their wedding, like all the others, was a celebration of love, laughter, and cherished moments.

Happy 1 year anniversary to Ari + Josh. We know their love story will continues to inspire those around them, reminding us all of the power of love, commitment, and the magic that happens when two beautiful souls come together in perfect harmony.

oxxo,

~ Dawn and Bob

Jordyn + Allen | Four Seasons Chicago Wedding



As Jordyn and Allen prepare to celebrate their one-year anniversary in a few days, we can't help but reflect on the profound love that binds this family together. It's evident in every interaction, every smile, and every moment shared between them. Their love is a testament to the power of family bonds, and we consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to have been a part of their story.

Jordyn and Allen are truly remarkable individuals. Their love story is one for the ages, filled with passion, laughter, and endless adventures. Our first encounter with them occurred when we photographed Brian and Alexis' wedding, Allen's brother, it was clear that they were destined for something extraordinary. They share a unique connection that radiates warmth and positivity, making everyone around them feel like a part of their love story.

Their wedding at The Four Seasons Chicago was nothing short of perfection. The setting was stunning, the details were impeccable, and the love in the air was magical. We are always in awe of the moments we get to capture, and Jordyn and Allen's wedding was a photographer's dream. Every smile, every tear, and every stolen glance spoke volumes about their love for each other.

We are honored to have had the opportunity to document this important chapter in the Altit-Levitas family's story. Being there to witness the union of two incredible people and to capture the joy, love, and emotion of that day is something we will forever cherish.

As we look back on the past year of Jordyn and Allen's journey together, we are filled with gratitude for the love they share. It's a love that inspires those around them to believe in the power of connection, commitment, and unwavering support.

To Jordyn and Allen, on your one-year anniversary, we celebrate your love, your passion, and your commitment to each other. Your journey together has just begun, and we can't wait to see all the amazing adventures and milestones that lie ahead. May your love continue to grow stronger with each passing day, and may your story inspire others to believe in the beauty of true love.

Happy 1st Anniversary, Jordyn and Allen! Here's to a lifetime of love, happiness, and cherished moments. Cheers to the union of this beautiful family, a beacon of unconditional love!

Carrie + Ben | Lake Shore Country Club Wedding



One year ago this week, we had the pleasure of photographing the most magical outdoor wedding at Lake Shore Country Club in Glencoe, IL, where Carrie and Ben tied the knot!

Their kindness and warmth shone through every moment of their special day, leaving a lasting impression on everyone fortunate enough to be in attendance. And it's no surprise, considering the wonderful family they come from, who filled the day with love and support.

From the beautiful backdrop of Lake Shore Country Club to the meticulous attention to detail, every aspect of the wedding was nothing short of perfection. Every flower, every smile, and every heartfelt moment came together to create a day that will be cherished forever.

What makes this story even more special is that we had the privilege of capturing the love again when we photographed Carrie's twin sister, Margie's wedding to Jordy a few months later! The bond between these two sisters and their family is truly heartwarming and a testament to the power of love. We cant wait to share their photos on their 1 year anniversary as well.

Here's to a year of love, happiness, and beautiful memories for Carrie and Ben! May their journey together continue to be filled with joy and love!

Thank you to Alison Ross Events for sharing us with this wonderful family!
