ana + erick // chicago, illinois wedding

Last summer, I traveled to Chicago to document the story Ana + Erick's and their beautiful wedding day. At the time of their wedding, they had been long distance with Ana living in Montreal, and Erick living in Chicago. After three years of long distance, Ana finally was able to call Chicago home after their wedding. 

Ana and her bridesmaids wore greenery filled flower crowns and carried loosely-arranged bouquets by Foraged Floral. Their style was simple, understated elegance achieved with flowing gowns that felt refined yet effortless. I also loved that Ana had her maids in white; it was the right amount of different without being too much.

While Ana's style and taste is lovely, I think the melding of cultures in this wedding was particularly beautiful. Ana is Russian, and Erick Romanian, so many of their family members traveled from other parts of the world to celebrate with them. The entire day was filled with emotion and the love that was shared between them and their families was palpable. I absolutely love the vulnerability these two showed throughout the day with each other.


Here's to one of my favorite weddings from last year.
