Chicago Wedding Photographer | Sunrise Elopement
Little did their guests know they were in for a HUGE surprise!!! This was my first time meeting Tori in person as we’d only been communicating online for a few months leading up to her “wedding day”. Tori and Chris had a beautiful engagement party in Chicago in a penthouse suite overlooking the lake with their friends and family. And yes, I did say ENGAGEMENT party. They invited their close friends and all family member for an intimate get together to celebrate their engagement.
But little did they know, that after some time, Tori disappeared and then reappeared to the party in a wedding dress and ready to say “I Do” right there in front of their friends and family. Seriously — how cool is that?!
Tori’s dress is her OWN design. Yeah really!! Herself and past bride and friend, Ly Nguyen; started their own company called Leigh & Siena. Think of it as Stitchfix, but for Wedding dresses that you can have shipped to you in your own private home to do your shopping and trying on. This is the very first in the line of gorgeous gowns and bridal separates that they are including in their line and I’m so so stoked about all of it.
They woke up at the crack of dawn and strolled onto the Chicago city streets like they owned them!! It was an amazing session as we bounced to multiple locations and enjoyed the solitude of the big city early in the sunrise morning. I’m so happy to share more peeks at their wedding images.
