Steel and Lace: Tara + Sean´s Wedding in Chicago

Daniela Cardili Photography

Cityscapes can be just as dramatic and stunning as a vineyard or a staggering mountain, and this Real Wedding proves it. How great is the shot of the wedding party posing on the bridge? The steel beams juxtaposed with the bride and bridesmaids dresses is beautiful.

From the photographer: They were married at the Assumption Catholic Church and their reception was at the amazing Salvage One. Tara and Sean met on New Year’s Eve 2011 at a party thrown by two of their mutual friends. Sean struck up a conversation with Tara early in the evening and they first bonded over the veggie tray she had prepared. They went on their first date two weeks later to a Mediterranean restaurant Sean chose and have been inseparable ever since. Much to Tara’s surprise, Sean proposed at Starved Rock on August 18, 2013. Tara thought they were going hiking for the day! Little did she know they would return home as an engaged couple. They were married on April 18 and had a wonderful celebration surrounded by family and friends.
