For the last couple of years we have been fortunate to photograph family photos of Svetlana and Yuriy so when it came to capture the most memorable moments on their special day we were super excited. Svetlana and Yuriy wanted classy, fun and timeless Chicago wedding photos. They got ready at Palmer House and had their first look on the mezzanine floor. Here is proof from the bride herself how meaningful and intimate it was to have a first look versus waiting until the ceremony: "My favorite detail was the first look pictures, the way my husband looked at me the first time he saw me in a wedding dress, the way his eyes were glowing. At first I thought he did not recognize me. I find my husband a handsome man but that morning he looked especially good, giddy and very happy." After the first look, despite the rain, Svetlana and Yuriy were brave to go outside for photos in the brisk rain. Check out the photos below that were taken both at Palmer House and Planetarium.
Q: Why did you choose WASIO photography to capture the memorable moments on your wedding day?
A:"We chose WASIO based on phenomenal previous experience. We have family portraits that hang in the living room and remind us about beautiful moments in our lives. It was a dream come true to have the best wedding photographers taking our pictures in our wedding day."
Q:. What did you like about Palmer House?
A:" Palmer House has a big historical lobby with high ceilings, beautiful decor with intricate details that was great for taking pictures. There was a quirt space on the mezzanine level where we were able to take our first look pictures in a more intimate setting. The rooms were spacious enough for makeup artist and a hair stylist to work together. We were able to move around some furniture to take amazing wedding preparation pictures."
