Tanya & Pete Say "I Do" | The Peninsula | Chicago



Both working on Michigan Avenue in the same building, they rode the elevator together for months sharing sweet glances at each other. One day, Pete recalls, after being out the night before and not feeling so great, he finds himself in the elevator with his crush and totally unable to think of anything witty or charming to say. And Tanya recalls Pete looking at her but not saying anything, so she decided finally to say something totally unoriginal (and that's her words) like "so, what's on the 22nd floor?" Well, that moment began the story of Tanya + Pete.

They were dating for about a year and a half when Pete proposed. Tanya had been at the gym that morning. When she met him back at their apartment, she was in total shock! Pete planned a scavenger hunt with notes that led from clue to clue, even tying one around their puppy, Spencer. The final note leading to the actual proposal was placed at the elevator to commemorate the day they actually first spoke. And Bob was there to cover the "YES! I will marry you". Pete then surprised Tanya with an amazing engagement party which he had been planning for months. Tanya's family came in from Ohio and their friends from all over the country were there to help celebrate their love!!!

Bob photographed their engagement session and then came their wedding day at the gorgeous Peninsula hotel in Chicago. They spent 9 months planning the wedding themselves; it was harder than they thought but it was worth every single effort. Lisa Zimbler, was their "Day Of" consultant and she did a wonderful job at keeping the day running smoothly. Thank you Lisa! She is such a joy to work alongside. We can't say thank you enough to our amazingly talented friend, Christine Bentley, who assisted Bob. Her images are mixed throughout and wow.... they are fantastic. Bob and I love you Christine!

Tanya and Pete, thank you for allowing us to be part of your journey together, from the proposal, engagement session, to your wedding day! We adore you both and think you're FABULICIOUS!!!

Much, much love!

~ Dawn and Bob

I love this photo collage below. The sweet details are always my favorite. The picture frame is holding old photos of Tanya's grandparents. And the purse was given to her by her mom who carried it on her wedding day 37 years ago.... makes me want to cry! The Ethan Lord rings are stunning. Pete's wedding gift to Tanya was her Bochic earrings. What a guy! And Tanya wanted her each of her bridesmaids to have a unique piece of jewelry from Cocotay. She worked with the owner, Courtney Blaisdell, to come up with some beautiful pieces. I think they were spectacular!

Stunning doesn't even come close to describe how beautiful this wedding was.... oh la la! And Ed Libby Events did the most amazing job with the decor.... can we have another oh la la?!!! It was so beautiful, my jaw litterally hit the ground when we walked into Cipriani on 42nd Street, in the heart of New York city. And we were thrilled to photograph their wedding.
