Columbia Yacht Club Chicago Wedding | Cassie + Wes | 8.9.14

What a honor is was to spend Saturday the 9th with Wes, Cassie and their families and friends at the Columbia Yacht Club. I started the afternoon with the girls at the Palmer House Hotel while Alain met up with Wes and  the guys while they were pampered at HALO Salon on Michigan Avenue. Wes did not see Cassie in her stunning Justin Alexander gown until her father walked her down the aisle at the Yacht Club. After their brief exchange of vows, complete with ringing of the bell, guests were invited to enjoy cocktails on the upper deck of the boat while we got to spend sometime with the couple and the bridal party taking photos on the pier and around the boat. Our portrait session was such a blast! The photo of the couple on the Tender boat is one of my favorites, perfectly romantic! Their Columbia Yacht Club wedding would not have been complete without a nautical themed reception complete with a message in the bottle guest book, navy and white linens and of course fireworks! Many thanks and well wishes to Cassie and Wes as they begin their new journey together.
