Classic Chicago Wedding by Simply Jessie Photography


Happy Monday gorg-ettes! You know lately, I've been seeing a lot of these minimalistic and simple weddings and I have to admit, I'm really starting to dig em. This Chicago celebration sent over from the wonderful Jessie and Eric Stevens from Simply Jessie Photography, is no exception either; it's oozing with genuine love and classic simplicity (yes, those are Valentino peep toes adorned with bows and yes I'd like a pair for myself, please). Salina and Chris said their vows in a Frank Lloyd Masterpiece in Oakpark, Illinois on May 21st and while all of those fluffy white peonies are enough to make a girl weak in the knees, you have to admit the beautiful bride truly stole the show (here's a fun fact for you too: that pretty little cake came straight from a bakery that's been family owned on the groom's side since 1952.) Catch you all later this afternoon!

This couple looks like they should be in a magazine and those bridesmaids dresses are ones I have been seriously considering (in a different color) I love all the different styles...

I love all white weddings with just a touch of another color, like gold, silver or pink.

The Valentino's and white peonies are enough to do it for me then top it off by getting married in Frank Lloyd Wright house?! Simply amazing. (I love the brides jewelry also!)

Thanks so much for all your incredibly gracious comments and compliments! We had such an amazing day and are so grateful to Jessie at Simply Jessie for capturing the day for us with her magical photography. She was so great to work with, and I would highly recommend her! Our florist,Fleur, produced beautiful work. Kelly is an artist. My bouquet was so soft and plush and smelled delicious!
