Kora + Darrin | 9.20.14 | Private Residence Sleepy Hollow, IL | Laura Witherow Weddings

I cannot say enough about Kora and Darrin. They are the most welcoming, laid back and relaxed couple. Their wedding day was a constant reminder of why I LOVE what I do!  Megan at North Shore Events did a amazing job making sure that the day ran smoothly and despite a little rain when we first arrived, the sun came out right before they were married. Guests gathered around for a quick vow and ring exchange and then were invited to dine on passed hor’douves and a raw bar before taking their seats for dinner. Kora and Darrin’s intimate tented backyard wedding was chalked full of beautiful details. Vintage furniture, wood tables, candleabras, wine barrels, and of course gorgeous flowers!  To add a even more personalized touch to the reception, Kora and Darrin wrote letters to each guest in lieu of place cards. The night went on without a hitch while Kora and Darrin cut their cake, danced their first dance and her dad sang Mustang Sally with the Band. It was the perfect backyard wedding and I am thrilled that we were able to be there with them to document this very memorable event. Thank you Kora and Darrin. We wish you nothing but the best today and everyday!

XO,

Laura

Maureen + Ben | 9.6.14 | The University Club of Chicago | Laura Witherow Weddings

Maureen is a classic beauty, one of those brides that just takes your breath away! She and her handsome husband Ben were a true joy to work with, always laughing and smiling. The ideal combination for great wedding photos. I honestly did not want their portrait session at the Art Institute to end as I could have photographed them all day! Maureen and Ben met through friends in their hometown of Seattle and made the long trek to Chicago to tie the knot at The University Club. Their wedding was a perfect Chicago affair nothing short of timeless and elegant! Many many thanks to this gorgeous couple for letting us share in their special day! It was one for the books! Or maybe my portfolio:)

XO,

Laura

Cassie + Wes | 8.9.14 | The Columbia Yacht Club Chicago, IL | Laura Witherow Weddings

What a honor is was to spend Saturday the 9th with Wes, Cassie and their families and friends at the Columbia Yacht Club. I started the afternoon with the girls at the Palmer House Hotel while Alain met up with Wes and  the guys while they were pampered at HALO Salon on Michigan Avenue. Wes did not see Cassie in her stunning Justin Alexander gown until her father walked her down the aisle at the Yacht Club. After their brief exchange of vows, complete with ringing of the bell, guests were invited to enjoy cocktails on the upper deck of the boat while we got to spend sometime with the couple and the bridal party taking photos on the pier and around the boat. Our portrait session was such a blast! The photo of the couple on the Tender boat is one of my favorites, perfectly romantic!

Their Columbia Yacht Club wedding would not have been complete without a nautical themed reception complete with a message in the bottle guest book, navy and white linens and of course fireworks! Many thanks and well wishes to Cassie and Wes as they begin their new journey together.

XO,

Laura
