Stunning Real Wedding at the Art Institute of Chicago

Perfete / Friday August 17, 2018

Being a Chicago native (Brianna here, obvi) I was instantly drawn to this wedding at the world-famous Art Institute of Chicago. I frequented this museum constantly when studying at Columbia and it always inspired me when I was feeling bogged down by classwork. Post-grad, it remained a favorite for a quick lunchtime pick me up during work downtown or as a perfect date night option. Okay, enough about me, on to this beautiful wedding 🙂

Ashley and Tyler tied the knot on a beautiful September day in one of the most timeless venues in Chicago: Art Institute of Chicago! Using the venues various photogenic spots (like the South Garden, the Spiral Staircase, they’re honestly endless) Julia Franzosa was able to capture both art and architecture in their wedding photography. The black tie optional event was described as, “Ethereal And Modern” by bride Ashley. It’s classic, chic and in a beautiful town that we’ll always love:
