The golden hour at Loft Lucia is the best in the Chicago. There, I said it. If your jaw doesn’t drop when you see the images of Amelia walking down the aisle in her custom XX wedding dress as the golden hour bursts through Loft Lucia’s windows, then look again. It’s not often that couples think outside the box with every aspect of their day, but Amelia and Michael did. Between the stunning dark purple calla Lillies, the industrial and intimate Loft Lucia, and the dramatic style that ecompassed both of them, Amelia and Michael had a wedding day like non other.
From the very moment they started planning, they knew they wanted their wedding day to be fully focused on them. No wedding party, no giant guest list, no over the top decor. Simple, intimate, meaningful. And what could not have been a more perfect March day, just after the last of the Chicago snow melted away, Amelia and Michael shared the most precious first look and explored Ping Tom Park and West Loop, just the two of them. A handful of the closest family and friends awaited their arrival at Loft Lucia and showered them with toasts, cheers and a few tears as they read vows and shared their first dance.
Amelia and Michael, you two are pure magic. From your family and friends contagious energy to the way you two interact with each other, you are surrounded by such bright light. It was truly an honor to document your life in this way, and thank you for sticking it to Covid and marrying anyway – because that’s what matters. All the love – M
