Joyce and Bryan eloped in Chicago on a warm December day shortly before Christmas. They chose Chicago to elope, simply to continue their annual tradition of visiting the city every year during the festive Christmas time. I was truly honored and humbled to be part of their special wedding day celebration. Their elopement started in the early afternoon in the hotel suite at Ambassador Hotel. After documenting a bit of preparations, they exchanged vows in the living room of their suite. After the ceremony we went to the rooftop of the Ambassador for a few creative portraits and later ventured out for some iconic sunset views from North Ave Beach. It was truly a special and beautiful afternoon.
