From Kristin La Voie Photography – “As Wedding industry leaders in the Chicago market, we have been thrilled to support same-sex marriage and love equality. We collaborated with The Symphony Center in Chicago to create a beautiful same-sex elopement that was a little different from your normal elopement.
The Symphony Center terrace was the perfect spot for these two gorgeous girls to tie the knot. Their intimate reception took place just inside the Club room, off the terrace. The newlyweds took part in a beautiful first dance and cake cutting, and I was thrilled to capture it all!”
From Katherine of Clover Events – “We wanted to use the beautiful 9th Floor Club at The Symphony Center in Chicago for an intimate, same-sex elopement. Their stone and brick balcony, with breathtaking views of Michigan Avenue and Millennium Park, was the perfect backdrop for their romantic ceremony. A solo violinist serenaded the brides as they said their vows to each other.”
From Alyssa Kristin – “The brides wore complementing slim silhouettes that let their personalities shine. One bride felt like a modern-day goddess in a high neck, column gown that showcased her beautiful back (Theia).
The other bride felt red carpet ready in a sequin embellished wrap gown that showed just a peek of leg (Estelle).”
