Engagement: Solmaz & Alaa

Sometimes Chicago throws 30-40+ MPH crazy winds at you, but the sun is shining, and god knows when you will get another sunny day, so you make it work despite the wind! And it’s oh-so worth it!!! See for yourself!!! (Thanks for being such troopers Solmaz and Alaa!!! Cannot wait until the big day!)

Martha Stewart’s Wedding Party 2017

A couple weeks ago was the party I wait on pins and needles for each year, the Martha Stewart Wedding’s Party in Chicago! If you follow me on Instagram (because that is where the real party is at!!), you have probably seen a lot of the fun from the party in my Instagram stories, but I also wanted to share in a bit of a more permanent way on the blog here.

Being a part of this year’s Martha Stewart’s Wedding Party was absolutely amazing, per usual, and is always such an honor, but I have to say that this year was even more exciting. I was not only asked to photograph the event, I was also asked to be a part of a ‘Local Experts’ Q&A Panel…and I have to say that I really really loved it! Being an all- things weddings resource to my couples is truly one of my favorite parts of my job, so getting to be a resource on a larger scale like that, to a room full (you guys, the room was full!) of engaged couples and industry people, felt great! (And totally has me jonesing to find other ways that I can participate in further ‘weddings 101’ type education, for newly engaged couples! Love it!)

Engagement: Chanen & Matt – Art Institute of Chicago

We’ve had our fair share of grey rain soaked days in Chicago lately, so we decided to forgo the outdoors and get cozy indoors at one of my favorite spots in the city for Chanen & Matt’s engagement session a couple weeks ago, the oh so stunning Art Institute of Chicago.

Oscars Fashion 2017

 

I had one thing and one thing only on my calendar for yesterday…and that was the Oscars! I stocked up on my favorite rosé, picked up my favorite ‘cheat day’ snacks, and parked myself on the couch for the night, from the first red carpet coverage to the very end. (And then fell asleep catching up on all the snaps from celebrities at after parties…and really wishing I get to attend that amazing Vanity Fair party one day!)

When it came to favorite looks, I had a hard time focusing on more than my one standout favorite…my repeat favorite from the Globes….the gorgeous Taraji P. Henson! I don’t usually use the word slay….but she SLAYED at the Oscars! In her custom Alberta Ferretti  gown of lush navy velvet with that sexy high slit. It was everything!

My runner up favorites were the ladies who rocked the neutrals. Chrissy Teigen in that beautifully draped (and caped!) Zuhair Murad! Darby Stanchfield in a white business on top and party on the bottom kind of dress with the most intricate detailing I’ve ever seen! And Isabelle Huppert in the loveliest understated gown that was beaded to absolute perfection! (I always love a good long sleeve on a formal gown!)

And can I throw an honorable mention in there? Busy Philipps! I honestly think she looked gorgeous in that deep emerald velvet gown by Elizabeth Kennedy, but I mostly loved her look because she had the best accessory ever….her BFF by her side! Love it! (And if you are not keeping up with her Instagram stories, you are missing out!)

Who were YOUR favorites at the Oscars last night?! Did you die over Taraji too?! Or did someone else win your fashion heart?!
