Chrissie and Anthony’s big day was definitely one of the highlights of 2021!  Their beautiful, chic downtown Chicago celebration was gorgeous and full of so much love.

Chrissie chose to have Jamie paint her ceremony, which took place at the honeycomb structure at Lincoln Park Zoo.  This unique pavilion faces the stunning Chicago skyline, making for a very striking painting backdrop.

One of our favorite moments of 2021 happened during Chrissie and Anthony’s ceremony, when their officiant talked about the phrase “I love you anyway.”  The officiant explained that many couples list their partner’s positive qualities when describing why they love them, but it’s much more important for a lasting marriage to love your partner in spite of their flaws instead.  We absolutely loved this sentiment and have added an “I love you anyway” sign to our home as a result of this special moment!

After Chrissie and Anthony said “I do!” under the honeycomb, we relocated to River Roast on the Chicago Riverwalk for their reception.  The night had beautiful weather and a gorgeous waterfront view for guests.

Congratulations again to Chrissie and Anthony!  Thank you so much for having Jamie capture your special day on canvas.
