Few weeks ago I was commissioned to photograph at Vivo Chicago restaurant. I have been to Vivo resurant multiple times in the past and I really love that place (their table upstairs is considered one of the most romantic dinner spots in Chicago!). So when I was asked to do wedding photography there I was extremely excited.
As a nice Italian, modern, chic, and romantic restaurant Vivo Chicago is not one of those bright places. It has a beautiful mood with brushed steel tables and chairs, nice dark ceiling, and a whole wall of wines. Of course what looks beautiful when one dines presents challenges when photographed. So my goal was to maintain the beautiful feel of that the Vivo Chicago restaurant but at the same time create interesting lighting and passionate photos of the beautiful two couples I photographed.
Decoration and the whole set up was prepared by M.B. Classics Event Designing Company. As you can see in my photos below Mary did an amazing job to make look classy but urban at the same time. M.B. does also full wedding planning in case you are looking for a top notch wedding planner. The beautiful cake was courtesy of Toni Patisserie and Café. Toni is a European pastry shop that was featured in a lot of wedding magazine.
The amazing wedding dresses were from one and only Laurel Bridal. I have seen many amazing dresses from Laurel Bridal but those two haute-couture dresses, one from France and the other from Italy were truly spectacular.
Hair & Make-Up were done by Anita, the owner of Chicago VIP Brides. I was truly honored to work with Anita as she is one of the top wedding make-up artists and hairstylists in Chicago.
And of course I cannot thank enough our two amazing coupled – Ronak & Bill, and Polina & Ivaylo.
I hope you will enjoy the photos from Vivo Chicago and your comments are always welcome:)
