As a metro Detroit wedding photographer, I get to see so many incredible celebrations. It’s safe to say that Trish and Tom had one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever photographed!
I was connected to Trish by her father Gary, who happened to be a teacher of mine at Chicago Photography Classes! He taught my Photo II class years back at the very start of my photography journey. The first time I met Trish and Tom, we hit it off instantly and I knew we would be fast friends. To capture Trish’s big day was definitely a full circle moment!
The gorgeous wedding took place at The University Club of Chicago. Tom is from the UK, so he had members of the family and friends flying in for the event. They couldn’t have chosen a more stunning venue to wow their guests.
Trish and Tom’s first look was on the 12th floor overlooking Grant Park and Chicago’s beautiful skyline. For bridal party portraits we went to the South Garden of The Art Institute of Chicago. For the ceremony and reception, we were in the Cathedral Hall of the University Club of Chicago. The Neo-Gothic stained glass windows were breathtaking and a truly unbelievable addition to this traditional wedding.
Apparently in the UK, it’s tradition for the groomsmen to roast the groom during the speeches. Tom’s two best men gave such a hilarious toast that there was a standing ovation at the end of their speech! Every toast was absolutely brilliant. Trish and Tom’s big day was truly out of a fairytale.
