Where do we begin with this beautiful set of imagery!?!? From first capture this past Saturday, Ornella's sophisticated style + natural beauty made for stunning 'getting ready' shots at their West Town flat. Mehdi's stoic class + sharp wit made for some really classic portraits with him + the guys around Chicago's historic 3 Arts Club. They reunited for the start of their wedding day at their first look outside of the iconic Public Hotel. It was simply elegant, just like them!
A french inspired setting for their ceremony, Nellcote is a West Loop gem of beautiful detail and shiny elegance. Toasts to the handsome couple at cocktail hour where made in the adjacent RM Champagne; a perfectly Parisian place with its al fresco lounges and flutes full of bubbly! We don't get to spend every weekend with a George + Amal Clooney inspired couple with the couture backbone to attest to such claims. So when we do, sharing the highlights from the day can't happen soon enough. See for yourself how these two lovebirds wear their style + grace effortlessly.
Ornella + Mehdi truly embody the simple elegance that a wedding day can have. In documenting such a celebration as commonly as the Rose Photo team does, it's fair to say we have seen A LOT of approaches. But the decorum of this couple is one for the books and we can't wait to share this set, especially with our very favorite glossy magazine in Chicago, in hopes of a spread that will rival that of their celebratory inspiration!
