Drake Hotel Chicago Wedding by Elena Bazini Photography.
I have been dying to share this Drake Hotel Chicago wedding since we photographed it back September, and I don’t even know where to begin now that it’s finally time. I am bursting at the seams with all these photos!
In short, Melissa and Phil threw the kind of wedding (and are just the kind of people) that made me remember why I love my job. These guys are just cool, man! They possess an insane amount of style, share a great love story, and throw a hell of a party. I felt like part of a dream team at this wedding, and that was a fabulous feeling. (Shout out to Chi Chic Events and Kehoe Designs, specifically!) Now it is basically my current goal in life to impress this bride and groom with my photography. Thank you Melissa and Phil for making me part of your event, for putting your trust in me, and for bringing all that heat! I loved spending this day with you! I hope you enjoy the photos, and that they help you to relive a most epic day. xo – Elena
I don’t know if a simple ‘thank you’ covers it for this day! We truly feel so incredibly lucky to have worked with this bride and groom. As well as with their whole team of creative minds. This was one of the first times that I’ve just really felt at home while at work. Thank you to Melissa and Phil for including me on your journey. Congratulations! Thank you! And kisses!
This day was Kool with a “K!” (Because after you photograph the world’s coolest wedding, you totally run into the Kool-Aid man and a commercial film crew outside of your venue. Because why not?)
