We’re sneaking a few teasers out from Alia & Josh’s Winter Chicago wedding. We started at the Blackstone Hotel for bridal preparations and some elegant modern editorial photography followed by a trek over to The Stan Mansion for the ceremony and reception. Thanks to Alia & Josh for having us record this day. Special thanks goes out to the wedding planner/designer Christine Janda as well!

Stan Mansion was a super cozy wedding venue for winter. The heat worked. Maybe too well. Stan-Mansion-Winter-Wedding-0020 Stan-Mansion-Winter-Wedding-0021Some seriously hip parents made seriously hip kids.Stan-Mansion-Winter-Wedding-0022 Stan-Mansion-Winter-Wedding-0023 Stan-Mansion-Winter-Wedding-0024Josh’s brother wasn’t with us before the ceremony for pics but we’re super glad we were able to catch some pics of him with his brother and the other guys.Stan-Mansion-Winter-Wedding-0025 Stan-Mansion-Winter-Wedding-0026I had never seen this before.
