It's so nice when I get to meet a Instagramer couple in person! So when Sukara asked me to take holiday photos of her , her fiance Greg and pup Benson I jumped at the chance to meet this cute (and sweet) couple in person! For there fun holiday session we created a few small sets in the Coach House to photograph them in before heading outdoors to enjoy the beautiful and unseasonably warm December weather (it was in the 60's)! They were such a cool couple to photograph and I really was digging there laid back wardrobe selections as well. A special thank you to Janelle of Re:Find Joy for the holiday props and for creating the custom chalkboard hand lettering holiday greeting! Season's Greetings to you all :)

From the outside looking into this cute Lakeview bridal shop, it's clear that Mignonette is unlike any other bridal shop in Chicago. Walking into this space is like stepping into a beatuifully curated bridal closet filled with one of a kind custom gowns designed and sewn by the talented shop owner Kpoene. And of course what closet wouldn't be complete without accessories like veils, jewelry, and vintage men's suits to complete your bridal look. Kpoene created her shop to be a space where clients could shop, chat, and linger around for a while...which trust me is easy to do with all the inviting vintage furnishings and DIY decor she has surrounding the space. She even rents out her space to other vendors in the wedding industry to hold client meetings in. Something that Joe and I are excited to be doing in the future.
If you're looking for a non-traditional, vintage inspired assortment of lovely bridal dresses and accessories be sure to stop by Mignonette and prepare yourself to be inspired and add to your list of go-to shops where you'll be happy to visit again with your mom and maid of honor in tow.
