Liz and Steven had an instant connection and went on their first date to Lou Malnati's. After enjoying the best deep dish in Chicago they went for ice cream and talked for hours because they didn't want the date to end. Soon Liz and Steven became inseparable and decided to move in together with his cat Dusty and, down the road, their dog Holly. They talked about their future and couldn't imagine being apart. Liz works at the beautiful Trump International Hotel on the river, and Steve popped the question there at the picturesque Terrace 16 restaurant overlooking the city.
When Liz and Steven's wedding day arrived, it was an exciting day for us at Something Blue as it was the first wedding of the year that Liz and Conrad shot on their own. We ventured into the city and parked beneath the Trump Tower where Liz and her bridesmaids were getting ready. The view out of the hotel windows was breathtaking; it was a treat to take detail pictures against such a majestic backdrop. Liz was calm and collected as she changed into her beautiful Allure bridal gown and shared a tender and emotional moment with her mom. Then it was off to see Steven on the 16th floor where he had proposed, it was impossibly windy on that August afternoon but it didn't take away from the sweetness of Steve seeing his bride for the first time. After taking pictures at the Trump Tower we drove across town to the beautiful Assumption Catholic Church where Liz and Steven exchanged vows in front of their families and closest friends. It was a beautiful ceremony, and as it ended the church filled with beautiful beams of light that illuminated Liz and Steven as they started their lives together as husband and wife.
The party kicked off at the beautiful Loft on the Lake in the West Loop where Liz and Steven celebrated with amazing food, drinks and dancing. We loved being alongside this fun and loving couple for their unforgettable Chicago wedding.
Congratulations, Liz and Steven, we love you and wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
