I looked forward to this Kitchen Chicago wedding for a couple reasons. First off, I love Chelcie and Matt! I photographed their engagement session last summer (link to their session here) and I had a blast working with them. Reason #2 is that it was my 1st wedding since having the baby and I felt ready to get back to work. Still, I was lucky it was a chill and intimate wedding as my postpartum body was still aching a bit. It was so sweet of Chelcie and Matt to make sure I stayed hydrated and well fed :) (I swear I have the best clients!!!). It was a cold winter day and so Chelcie, Matt,  and I stepped out to take portraits for only 5 minutes. By staying outside any longer we risked getting frost bite!  Thank god the surroundings of Kitchen Chicago offered some good photo spots nearby. After we took a few chilly shots we quickly ran back indoors! The cozy and warm atmosphere of the venue was a welcome contrast to the outside cold. Its tall ceiling, brick walls, and large windows offered a great opportunity for the couple to express their creativity with a beautifully designed altar and flower/plant arrangements (made by Art Farm)
