Nicole & Ryan


Family was the most important part of their Ivy Room wedding day.

With their sisters and brothers serving as their wedding party, photos were so important. Even though they weren’t from Chicago, they selected the most interesting city spots. After their first look by the Wrigley Building, we headed out to Northerly Island. With a little bit of a chill on a lovely fall day, the wedding party braved the wind at Northerly Island and also at Museum Campus.

Nicole + Ryan’s day was perfect! Since they live out east, they had the added challenge of planning a gorgeous wedding remotely.

The Ivy Room wedding ceremony was outdoors in the charming courtyard.

When you plan an outdoor ceremony in the most dreamy outdoor ceremony space, you want to make it happen! The guests bundled up with blankets and heaters for the intimate ceremony. Nicole + Ryan made everyone a part of the event with a passing of the candle ceremony so that everyone was joined together.

Then the party got started in the ballroom!
