TEO + ANNA-8813-15.jpg

Outdoor Candlelit Winter Wedding | Chicago, IL

Téo and Anna met when she went out on a girls night and Téo was their bartender at The Dawson. Needless to say, getting married at the place their story began made a lot of sense.

I was getting chills just by hearing Anna describe her vision for their day. A December wedding, outdoors, so bold and unique, with candles and string lights all over the place. Add two people madly in love and you’ve got some real beautiful magic.

It was a cold day, but warmer than usual for December, and we had a light misty rain falling all day long. But the plan for an outdoor ceremony was still standing. The bride and groom and their guests were accommodated with heaters and tents for the ceremony. Anna’s mom was the officiant and spoke beautifully of their love. The emotion was tangible in the air the entire time.

During the ceremony, Anna’s dad sang them the sweetest song he wrote for her. They also sang a song together for the first half of their first dance. Anna was the most thoughtful bride, always making sure we were taken care of and had what we need, and sending us cocktails.

Téo and Anna were lived their day in an emotional, intentional, and intense way all day long. I am sure you’ll agree with me as you click through these images.

Congrats again, Téo and Anna!
