“Eric + Tiffany are Married!! It was our pleasure in being chosen as Eric + Tiffany’s Chicago wedding photographers and you may remember Eric and the stunning Tiffany from the couple’s previous appearance on our blog last year when we posted the couple’s Chicago engagement photography session.

 

Although we have only known these two for a little over a year, it didn’t take long for us to feel like we have known them for much longer. Eric and Tiffany are a couple who are both beautiful inside and out. Through reception toasts, conversations and stories exchanged during their engagement session, and in meeting their closest friends and family on the wedding day, we found these two are truly genuinely great people. We loved working with you guys Eric and Tiff!! Eric + Tiffany currently reside in Valencia California near Santa Clarita. However both Eric and Tiffany are originally from the North Chicago suburbs. So planning a wedding in Illinois versus California was a big decision, but they felt definitely a “must have” having it back home in Chicago. Primarily why did they have their wedding here in Chicago… family and friends.

 

Tiffany and Eric’s day was streamlined and kept very simple, as Tiff decided she’d like to stay at the one location all day. All of the events of during the day such as bridal hair, make-up and getting ready were upstairs in the hotel’s huge and light filled suites. And following the couple’s morning preparations, our bridal dramatic, romantic and editorial style wedding photography, Tiffany and Eric’s indoor and romantic candle lit ceremony, and the events of their modern reception all took place at the same one location and their venue. The Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel is a Chicago modern wedding venue and we enjoyed it as much as Tiffany and Eric told us they did upon first booking it. Tiffany was telling us during our first conversation, how they were inspired by the venue and were planning on putting together a modern themed event. As the planning all came together, Tiffany added to the modernism a few more emphasizes for an overall themed “Modern Organic Clean Romantic” styled day. Tiff and Eric decided to hire on the help of an expert and a vendor we always enjoy working with Anthony Navarro from Liven It Up Events. Anthony and his team always do an amazing job helping to craft and produce fully a bride’s vision. Highly focused on putting together all the planned items and taking care of any unexpected parts of the day that may arise, we can’t recommend a planner enough. And Anthony is a delight and talent worth looking into working with.

 

The Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and Convention Center in Schaumburg is a hotel with an abundant amount of beautiful and natural lighting. The convention center is a large building with nice grand spaces and it incorporates a clean, urban and chic esthetic, with an ultra modern style. The venue has an airy appeal with many white walls and towering columns and contrasted colorful details with within the decor, vertical lines in metals, cement and glass. The glass stair case and huge floor to ceiling windows in both the guest’s hotel rooms and throughout the second story hotel’s grand foyer are great. ( We can’t express how much we LOVED the abundance of natural lighting and windows everywhere, creating perfect and ideal lighting conditions for photographs. The window lighting allowed us to use the space as our photo studio, to artistically create and capture editorial style wedding photography images for Tiffany and Eric. This venue was a photographer’s dream location! ) The hotel offers an ideal situation for bride’s whom prefer if a humid Chicago weather or rainy day comes along, the venue offers great indoor space to shoot inside. For Eric + Tiffany’s day, lucky it may be, it did thunderstorm and rain. So already having the indoor space, made for less stressing about staying dry and more time for shooting artistic pictures. Tiffany looked stunning in her Winnie Couture gown which she purchased directly from the boutique’s flagship store on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. Eric complemented her beauty in his classic fit tuxedo. We felt spoiled in having such a glamourous couple to photograph! Tiffany you looked stunning and compliments to her make-up and hair stylists who did an amazing job enhancing her natural beauty.

 

Eric + Tiffany again, thank you in your hospitality and we had a great time alongside you both. Best wishes to the two of you! When we are near Los Angeles or Valencia for a future wedding or vacationing out your way in California, we will surely be calling to visit you guys. Hope you love our selection of favorites from the day we chose to feature above as much as we do. Enjoy + Congrats!”

“After a few earlier in the week wedding photo posts… we are excited to feature next a Summer Chicago engagement session with Eric + the beautiful Tiffany. From the moment we imported the images from the camera to our computer, we could hardly wait to feature this engagement shoot. ( And narrowing it down to these favorites pictures to feature was a difficult task : ) We have many favorites, loved the locations + loved working with Tiffany and Eric.

 

After booking us earlier this Spring, we had only talked to Tiffany a few times, long distance over the phone. So it wasn’t until the shoot, that we actually met in person these two. It’s was great finally meeting the two of you! T+E are currently living and working in Southern California in the Santa Clarita area. Originally calling Chicago home, Tiffany + Eric moved to LA a few years ago… they currently work for the same company, a worldwide developer, manufacturer and marketer of medical devices. Tiffany works in the company’s PR and event planning department, while Eric works in sales. Their positions sometimes cross paths, so it was interesting comparing how Ryan and I work together, and their occasional working together relationship too.

 

For the engagement shoot, we mixed in a variety of environments capturing some unique and Chicago high-fashion engagement pictures, and then in-contrast some romantic softer portraits. We loved E+T’s fashion sense and style. Tiffany requested a few location and photo stops which both her and Eric would each like… it’s always interesting hearing the different styles the guys and girls have. Once she mentioned we loved boats, we had a great, secret location in mind that we had came across earlier in the week… With them being from LA and the uncommon occurrence of palm trees in Chicago… this turned out to be a fitting location for these two.

 

Eric + Tiffany, we had a great time on your shoot and thanks for grabbing a late night bite to eat with us afterwards!! Enjoyed the good conversation and hearing about your wedding plans, jobs, travels, the lifestyle and activities in the LA area, and boating and wake boarding up North at Eric’s family’s Wisconsin cabin. After hearing about the area you live at in California and the lifestyle, Ryan and I are dedicated to finding time for a trip out your way! Hopefully we can stop by and grab drinks again. Hope your family and friends enjoy the engagement pics… talk to you soon.”

Eric + Tiffany are planning on using a few photos for their save the date announcement. They are in the midst of wedding planning for their June 2011 wedding. Talk about selecting a popular June wedding date… we have received 5 inquiries in the past month alone for their wedding day. : ) Both the ceremony and reception are going to take place at Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and convention center in Schaumburg. A unique hotel, the Renaissance has a modern decor style and a ton of touches of bright colors. A contemporary hotel design … we love modern places, so with it’s unique architectural style it’s definitely one of our favorite reception venues in Schaumburg. Looking forward to their wedding.

 

E+T are a referral from Brittany + Bobby and friends of theirs from high school. We love + appreciate hearing our couples referring us to their friends.
