Becca and Jonah | Sunny Summer Park Wedding | Chicago IL


April 14, 2023

Becca and Jonah’s summer wedding at Cafe Brauer in Lincoln Park was such a joy to photograph. From gorgeous, intentional details to a group of people overflowing with joy, this day was a breeze start to finish.

The couple’s day included parts of a traditional Jewish wedding, like the Tisch and Ketubah signing, getting married under the chuppah with friends and family holding it up, and of course my favorite part, the hora!

There were two first looks–one with Becca’s dad and one with her soon-to-be-husband Jonah, then the day continued on with some whiskey drinking, singing, a stroll through the Lincoln Park wildflowers, and an emotional wedding ceremony before the night kicked off with tons of dancing, singing, and celebrating.
