One of the Cafe Brauer weddings we documented, was actually one of my most favorites of all time. I actually can’t believer it took me this long to write about it, and share wedding photographs from this wedding in Chicago. I met with Daniel and Kai at the local coffee shop for our initial meeting, and one thing I was struck immediately was their positive energy. A true perfect fit for each other, these two glow with amazing energy, and their constant laughter is absolutely contagious.

For their wedding, they chose an amazing Cafe Brauer, a wedding venue located near the ZOO in Chicago’s neighborhood of Lincoln Park. A truly unique and one of a kind venue, that I absolutely loved. It’s vintage, has character, kind of lofty feel, but not a loft. The views of the city, and nature board walk in Lincoln park are absolutely breathtaking.

Her father walked in to the room, to help her put the shoes on, and her mother stading and watching there, was a perfect opportunity to capture this family truly enjoying and embracing every single moment!dad helping bride put her shoes onwedding day first look at navy pier in chicagomillton lee olive park weddingchicago wedding photography beach portrait north avebride and groom walk down the eisle

Details at the Cafe Brauer were absolutely stunning. Floral arrangements Daniel Picked for the wedding were a perfect match with the space, and everything just had a beautiful flow and style.

Danielle and Kai had one of the most spectacular Sparkler send-off I have ever witnessed. Thank God Cafe Brauer is not one of those wedding venues that banned these. We had around 150 people with 2 minute sparklers, and the moment was just spectacular. So much so, that Danielle and Kai went for it not once, but two timessparkler send off wedding chicago
