Matt & Josh - Modern Luxury Downtown City Wedding at Thompson Chicago

Matt and Josh were literally made for each other. They compliment each other SO well. Josh is my best friend’s brother, so I was absolutely honored when he contacted me to shoot their super intimate luxury wedding in downtown Chicago. After getting dressed in their amazing apartment overlooking the city, we grabbed an Uber and headed to the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool in the Lincoln Park Conservancy for some pre-ceremony photos. It was a perfect day in July - especially to stop by the South Pond Pavilion at the Nature Boardwalk after!

Matt & Josh tied the knot in the Froines room in Thompson Chicago hotel among the summer skyline. They spoiled their guests afterwards with delicious cocktails and a FOUR course meal. The food at the Nico Osteria (Italian seafood yuuuum!) located inside Thompson, is seriously to dieee for. Everyone was seated at one table, so you could hear everyone talking and the lighting was golden and glowy and it was seriously just perfect. Love you both!
