Michael + Claire- St. Ignatius College Prep Wedding Photography, Chicago Illinois

It was young love- merely freshman in high school when Michael and Claire both attended St. Francis Xavier Church in LaGrange to get their confirmation. They both joined the same choir (Claire is a singer and Michael plays the guitar), but it took three years for Claire to work up the courage to talk to Mike and ask him to her senior prom at St. Ignatius College Prep in Chicago.  They dated for six years, and the two of them began to discuss marriage plans and what their dream wedding would be. Michael had plans for Claire on both Friday and Saturday, and Claire was highly anticipating the big question to come from Michael on Saturday. It was Friday night, and Michael made reservations to Bruno’s Ristorante, a romantic Italian restaurant in Chicago. What Claire didn’t know was Michael was planning on popping the question that night, and even had the owner & valet’s of Bruno’s ready to surprise Claire. As they went to get the car, the valet pulled out Michael’s guitar from his car and placed it on the sidewalk, and he started to play a jazz rendition of “All of Me”, and pulled out the ring from his jacket to ask Claire to marry him. After dinner he drove her to her parent’s house where both sides of the family were waiting with champaign!! Such a romantic proposal, and a little over a year later, Michael and Claire were married at their childhood church and had the reception at the gorgeous hall in St. Ignatius- right where they had their first prom date together :) It was a beautiful day, Claire looked absolutely stunning and Michael looks like he belongs in a fashion catalogue in some of these images! St.Ignatius has a beautiful view of the Chicago skyline right on their football field which made a beautiful backdrop, and the Green Fourteen band had everyone on their feet the whole evening. Towards the end of the evening Claire and Michael sang a duet on stage to Ingrid Michaelson’s “The Way I Am”, bringing all guests to happy tears. It was a beautiful wedding with two phenomenal talented musicians!! Thank you to all of the amazing vendors who helped put this together!
