Bridget + Colin were blessed with a spring Chicago rainy day wedding day!
Because rain on your wedding day is not only romantic, it is good luck of course! In some cultures, rain on your wedding day is considered good luck, symbolizing fertility and cleansing. Bridget took the rain in stride and just enjoyed the day getting to marry her handsome hubby.
Bridget got ready in the stunning presidential suite of the Swissotel with her girl squad. Sipping champagne, her bridesmaids were overjoyed to see her getting so happy on her wedding day.
Colin first saw Bridget while they were both students at DePaul University. She was working at a restaurant and Colin made sure to stop in frequently to see beautiful Bridget. Eventually, his charming personality won her over and they started dating.
In the cancer survivor’s garden at Maggie Daley Park, Colin met his beautiful bride.
Their Maggie Daley Park wedding day first look was filled with only smiles. After their first look, the sweet couple decided to exchange their personal vows before their ceremony. As the rain trickled down, they read their sweet vows to each other.
After Colin finished wiping away tears during their touching vows, it was time for some Chicago Board of Trade wedding photos! The rain was still coming down, but thankfully they had some umbrellas.
Because the rain wouldn’t stop, we did another wedding shoot a few weeks later so they could get the gorgeous wedding photos they had dreamed of. Fortunately it was a gorgeous day for their re-shoot!
