Jessica and Rob were married this weekend at St. Mary of the Angels, and they followed their ceremony with a classic and romantic reception at the Rookery–one of Chicago’s most beautiful buildings.

I knew this would be an epic wedding day, especially after these two dressed to the nines, hauled helium tanks and weather balloons around, and challenged the Chicago police for the engagement session. And, though the rain clouds threatened to dampen the day, Jessica and Rob’s wedding ended up being as wonderful as I’d hoped.

I started the day at their apartment, photographing Jessica and her gals get ready. Then, after a lovely ceremony, we headed out on a Trolley, getting photographs at the Kinzie St. bridge and outside of the Rookery.

These two are so fun-loving and full of life. That always makes for great inspiration for a photog! I love that they can be silly and sexy and everything in between.

I also love that they, especially Rob, LOVE photographs, too. In fact, I may or may not have caught them taking a few wedding day selfies. :)

Here’s to a lifetime of love, happiness, and perfect selfies! Enjoy these sneak peeks.

There was a quick stop at a CVS as we made our way around town for photos. Of course, Rob’s brother–and best man–was up to no good.
