Lake Michigan is a beautiful place to have a wedding, but even better, a boat on the Chicago and Lake Michigan is an even more amazing place to get married. That's exactly what Fabian and Brinslee thought when they planned their French-American style wedding in Chicago.

These two got ready together at a Chicago hotel, Royal Sonesta Downtown, before boarding the boat, Leading Lady with their closest friends and family. We sailed up and down the Chicago river for their beautiful Ceremony. Fabian gave his vows in French and Brinslee in English and then it was party time. The reception was sailing Lake Michigan while the guests danced on the top deck. The night ended with a perfect view of the Chicago skyline and Navy Pier's fireworks display. 

What we especially liked about this wedding was that it was extremely unique and they really did things their own way. For example, instead of a bouquet toss, they opted for a stuffed animal toss, honoring their pets, that ended in a charity donation in the recipient's name. They truly embodied the advice we always give, 'plan your perfect day where you also happen to get married'. Truly, if you do only the things that you would enjoy, everything will fall into place.

Special thanks to Caitlin Coleman for being the perfect day of coordinator. Thank you most of all to Fabian and Brinslee for being awesome and planning an amazing day to photograph. Enjoy some of our favorite moments of the day.
