Maliah & Matt

The Palmer House Hilton served as the perfect backdrop for Maliah & Matt’s wedding day. I’d never actually met Maliha & Matt before their wedding day since they live in Los Angeles and our schedules never seamed to match, but we all hit it off right away. After successfully avoiding the crowds of the Air and Water Show by carefully planning our Chicago photo locations, we spent the rest of the evening at the Palmer House for a beautiful ceremony and reception. Paige and I even stuck around to have a few more drinks with the bridal party at Potter’s Lounge after the reception ended.


I forgot to mention this last week, but we finally got to have brunch at Duchamp, the new Bucktown restaurant by Chef Michael Taus whose wedding I photographed a few weeks back. We got a seat outside in the courtyard on a beautiful Sunday morning and enjoyed steak and eggs, croque-monsieur and mimosas. Check it out if you get a chance, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. Make sure to leave room for dessert.
