Chicago Osteria Via Stato Wedding of Tracy + Aileen

I was so excited to meet Tracy and Aileen a few months ago when they contacted me asking me about photographing their big day. We talked all about their love of family and friends and how they really wanted to treat them to amazing meal at the Osteria Via Stato and I must say it was some of the most delicious Italian food I have ever eaten. They had handmade guest name tags on spools of thread that were adorable. The cake they decided on was three different flavors and was decorated with the Chicago skyline around the base from The West Town Bakery. It was the most delicious cake and the only bakery and Chicago that promises completley nut allergy free. Their ceremony was beautiful and started with their nephew playing the violin as the flower girls, Tracy and Aileen walked in. It also included them locking letters to each other into a wine box. I had never seen that before and thought it was a nice touch. Please enjoy the images from their beautiful day.
