This was one of our favorite weddings of the year. Max and Andie were amazing to work with. They had lots of personality and energy and this couple certainly share an incredible amount of love for each other. This was shot in Chicago, and we always enjoy filming there. We met with Max and Andie a couple of months before their wedding. It was quite evident that Max is a planner and detail oriented, which we love. Before the wedding, the couple had their “First Look” next to the lake with a stunning view of the Chicago Skyline. When Max turned to see Andie, she literally took his breath away. Such a beautiful Bride. We spent a period of time before the wedding in downtown Chicago for photos and a stop by Jimmy Johns to replenish. One stop in particular was at Carnival, which was very colorful inside with a whimsical feel to it. A place we want to return and visit. The wedding ceremony and reception was held at Petergof Banquet Hall. It was an amazing venue. We were very impressed with how organized Petergof staff were. The reception was like going to a Las Vegas show. It was one huge party. What stands out the most to us, however, is just how much Max and Andie lived this day out, taking advantage of every moment and letting it all soak in.
