Bread & Chocolate Goshen, IN Wedding | Mackenzie & Steven

Mackenzie and Steven are two high school sweethearts who were married at Bread & Chocolate in Goshen, IN!

Bread & Chocolate has to be one of our absolute favorite wedding venues in the Goshen area!  I mean how much are we loving that name?! The venue itself sits on the third floor of the historic Old Bag Factory (we snapped a shot from outside so you’ll get an idea!) and it’s a lofty yet romantic space with ultra modern vibes. the perfect spot for Mackenzie and Steven to say I do.

Steven put a lot of thought into when and where he would pop the question, and you are going to the love the sentiment behind it. Mackenzie and Steven had been planning to move to Maryland and were there on a trip before their big move. Steven took Mackenzie out to dinner at an old school house turned hip restaurant and popped the question then! He wanted to ask Mackenzie to marry him while they were in Maryland so that when they finally made the official move, it already felt like home to them! How thoughtful is that?!

When it came time for their wedding day Mackenzie and Steven decided to have a first look with one another in their space at Bread & Chocolate before meeting down the aisle for the official ‘I dos’. Mackenzie confided in us that she had talked Steven into doing a first look because she didn’t think she could go the whole day before seeing him. We captured all the reactions from their first look, including plenty of smiles and Steven twirling Mackenzie around in her fairytale gown.

After they made it official, we took the bride and groom, along with their bridal party, outdoors where a fresh blanket of crisp white snow awaited us. Mackenzie wore a short fur jacket over her bridal gown to keep warm, and her bridesmaids all wore cozy white chenille scarves with tassels. Steven and his groomsmen all looked dapper as they strolled down Chicago Avenue.

Loft on Lake Chicago Wedding | Laura & Brian

Laura & Brian were wed at Loft on Lake, a Chicago wedding venue with an industrial, yet lofty and chic vibe!

This outgoing, adventurous and fun loving couple had a beautiful wedding day full of details that we adore. Laura and Brian opted for an intimate sized bridal party with a maid of honor and a best man standing by their side for the day! The bride and groom also had a sweet and intimate first look with the biggest smiles you’ve ever seen, before meeting down the aisle. When we asked them what detail of their wedding day they were looking forward to the most, they confided in us it was their first dance as newlyweds! We also took to the rooftop of their Chicago wedding venue at Loft on Lake to grab some wedding day portraits with crazy good skyline views of the city, and those precious just married moments where nobody else in the world existed except for Laura & Brian.

Laura & Brian’s meet-cute happened when the couple was introduced by mutual friends at a local charity event. Their introduction was so early on in the afternoon of the event that they ended up spending the rest of the day in each other’s company! How sweet is that?!

The couple also spilled all the details of their proposal story with us! Laura and Brian’s proposal story happened during a fall backpacking trip through Pictured Rocks in Upper Peninsula Michigan. Once Laura and Brian had arrived at their destination and finished setting up camp for the night, they walked down to the shore to watch the sunset over Lake Superior. After the sun had fully set far over the distant horizon, Brian got down on one knee and popped the question.

In addition to enjoying outdoorsy adventures, Laura & Brian love spending quiet time alone together at home and taking their dog for long walks. On their wedding day, we made a quick stop to pick up their pup, so that we could follow them around the streets of Chicago for some wedding day photos as a family of 3!

Nick + Jessie {Maternity Love} Chicago, Illinois

We first met Nick and Jessie back in 2015. They were tying the knot here in South Bend, and we were the lucky photographers they picked to photograph their wedding! Which is always incredibly humbling!

It turned out to be the perfect day, as they said “I Do”, surrounded by their amazing friends and family … and it’s one of those weddings that we will ALWAYS remember! We not only had a blast, but we made some life long friends along the way. :) And if you’d like to check out their big day, we blogged about it … RIGHT HERE!

So fast forward a few years … September, 2018 … we were super stoked to learn that a little Fenton would be running around very soon, so it was a privilege when they contacted us about doing a maternity session! We jumped at the chance to adventure to a cute little neighborhood in Chicago, where this beautiful couple calls home! They’re not only sweet, kind, and SUPER good looking, but they’re also incredibly successful in the “Windy City”! But they’re the most modest people you’ll ever meet, so you won’t hear that from them … so we just have to give them a shoutout on all their hard work!!! You go girl … and boy. ;)

Ok, ok … back to that beautiful morning in September … we first ventured to the Gethsemane Garden Center, where we found the prettiest flowers and plants, and where we laughed … a lot! These two have such genuine joy; it’s contagious! And their sweet love … it’s something to strive for, and these two exude so much love for each other!

After our hilarious venture at the greenhouse, we went back to their beautiful little home, where we met their sweet pup, Kosar! And had even more laughs! And … we got to see their beautiful space where they’ve made their home, a HOME. Many of the things you see in their amazing space, Nick made! He’s quite the talented woodworking artist!

There is no mistake about it … these two are going to be the BEST parents and we are so darn thankful our paths crossed in 2015. We’ve shared in some amazing moments with them over the years, and we can’t wait for what the future holds. Congratulations beautiful souls. We adore you so much!




Chicago Engagement Session | Laura & Brian

I met up with Laura, Brian, and their sweet girl, Dottie, in their adorable apartment in the city for their sweet Chicago engagement. We roamed around the neighborhood, hit up the beach, Laura's work rooftop that overlooks the beautiful Chicago skyline, and ended at the very bar Laura and Brian first met! 

These two are so sweet and I had such a great time getting to know them! Can't wait for their Chicago wedding this Ocotber!

Starved Rock Adventure Session | Halie & Tyler

Halie and Tyler answered our Starved Rock model call a couple months back. They were a perfect fit for what we were looking for! They are adventurous and fun and take a beautiful photo! 

I met up with them at Starved Rock State Park in Oglesby, IL at the beginning of June. These two came all the way from Newaygo, MI!  It was such a HOT and humid day but these two hiked with me for a couple of hours and were such troopers! It was so great to get to know Halie and Tyler. Their love for each other was so sweet and they made my job that much easier! 

Congrats to this wonderful couple on their recent engagemnt!!
