Natalie and Charlie’s Ovation Chicago wedding was one of the most fun and colorful weddings I have shot! Bianca at Estera Events did a fantastic job capturing the couple’s personality and bringing the space to life! Throughout the night, the energy was as fun as the decorations; Natalie and Charlie’s guests were incredibly positive, lighthearted and supportive. From the flamingo theme to the pink and orange balloons, there was something whimsical about the day! And can we talk about the ping pong table?! What a fantastic idea! It was fun to see all the College of Charleston alum battling it out in their gowns and tuxes.
Natalie and Charlie’s story began on campus at the College of Charleston in 2006 and they have been together ever since! After college, they have moved to the city and adopted their adorable pup. Natalie loves how Charlie can “make the best of any situation and always makes me smile” and Charlie admires Natalie’s self-confidence. Their ideal date night includes dinner on a dog friendly patio then dessert at Miko’s Italian Ice. The Ovation Chicago wedding captured their lighthearted personalities and sense of fun!
After getting ready, Natalie and Charlie’s Ovation Chicago wedding began with a first look before we took portraits of the wedding party. There wasn’t an ounce of stress in the air and every member of the party brought so much fun and laughter to the shoot! We then hopped in a trolly (equipped with flamingo beer funnels) to the ceremony at Ovation Chicago. Every detail was perfect and captured the couple.
Natalie and Charlie- I hope this next chapter in your life is as colorful and fun as your wedding day was. You will continue to illuminate any room you walk into. Cheers 🙂
