KRISTEN MITTLESTEDT PHOTOGRAPHY // About the Photographer When creating art, Kristen is deeply inspired by the way light falls onto her subjects and their surroundings and claims she’s “just a girl in love with light.” She also understands that great imagery isn’t just about a killer location. Kristen uses her background in Fine Art and Film Photography to create imagery with an artistic and fashion vibe. She says of this issue’s cover, ”During the shoot, we had an amazing backdrop of the city! The models were flawless and the WeddingDay team made creating art an absolute dream.”

WEDDINGDAY 3


FROM THE EDITOR I’m not really a radio listener anymore, but I have been enjoying my free trial of Sirius XM and its variety of stations. I’ve found myself bouncing between music from the ‘70s and ‘80s, yes, and reliving my high school and college days. I don’t think there will ever be a period of time again that offers such variety and creativity in pop music. One of my all-time favorites by Paul Simon, Kodachrome, describes the mood of this very special issue of WeddingDay, highlighting the most beautiful wedding images from some of the most talented photographers in the Midwest. We hope that you find this guide valuable as you begin your pursuit of the perfect photographer for your sunny day! Kodachrome By Paul Simon

FOLLOW US FOR EXCLUSIVE CONTENT:

When I think back On all the crap I learned in high school It's a wonder I can think at all And though my lack of education Hasn't hurt me none I can read the writing on the wall Kodachrome They give us those nice bright colors They give us the greens of summers Makes you think all the world's a sunny day I got a Nikon camera I love to take a photograph So mama don't take my Kodachrome away

If you took all the girls I knew When I was single And brought them all together for one night I know they'd never match My sweet imagination Everything looks worse in black and white Kodachrome They give us those nice bright colors They give us the greens of summers Makes you think all the world's a sunny day I got a Nikon camera I love to take a photograph So mama don't take my Kodachrome away

ust because your wedding is taking place during winter months, doesn’t mean it can’t be just as breathtaking as a wedding in any other season. In fact, the goal behind this shoot, photographed by Danielle Harris Photography and planned by Bridget Davis Events, was to show Midwest brides that a romantic, fine art winter wedding is well within reach. Set against a palette of neutrals and mauves and the Neidhammer’s historic stage, exposed walls and natural light, this shoot’s rich texture, soft edges and natural elements shined. The theme of soft elegance and warmth continued in details such as dried fauna, feathery calligraphy, mulled cider and a lovely cake reminiscent of winter drifts. The mini croquembouches for each place setting were as delicious as they were divine. And the addition of the snuggly reindeer? Downright magical.

THE VISION

THE VENUE

One of the best parts of our job is dreaming up the next cover. It’s like being a bride-to-be over and over again. For this shoot, we craved something urban, fresh and modern. We imagined moody, bold vibes and a big city backdrop. While the “Windy City” is famous for many things, its skyline is certainly one of them. And as one of the most iconic and world-class locales, we knew this Midwest gem was the perfect place for our skyline scenes. Thanks to the Kimpton Hotel Palomar Chicago, Unveiled Weddings and Events, photographer Kristen Mittlestedt and our entire talented team, our vision reached new heights. Prepare yourselves for some modern, urban elegance and simply spectacular views.

Anyone familiar with Chicago knows how alluring the River North neighborhood is—especially from a rooftop. The Kimpton Palomar Hotel Chicago isn’t only nestled within this prime downtown location, it offers a sleek style, impressive amenities and an authentically urban feel you won’t get anywhere else. From gorgeous skyline views to sophisticated guest rooms and suites, this boutique luxury hotel is both exquisitely personal and memorable. Being wowed from the moment we stepped foot in the door, selecting the Palomar was an easy choice for our urban dream.

URBAN VIBES // Cover Shoot

THE DÉCOR Michelle Nikitaras, Unveiled Weddings and Events Owner and Lead Event Planner says, “We wanted to showcase a moody, modern, couture theme so we went with darker colors to bring this to life.” Using a patterned linen in gray, black and white hues and details like gold plates and deep burgundy napkins, the inviting décor was both modern and sophisticated. What made the design pop even more was the magnificent setting. To soften the hard lines within the cityscape, the Unveiled team utilized the power of texture—breathtaking florals and flowing linens.

THE FLORALS The florals were nothing short of alluring and featured different types of greenery, mini callas, pops of cappuccino roses and sunflowers for deep red and soft pink floral embellishments.

WEDDINGDAY 93


THE LOOK Our bride wore two stunning Jenny Yoo pieces. The gorgeous, modern gown featured sleek lines and long sleeves while the jumpsuit aligned perfectly with the couture theme. True Beauty by Dana made our modern bride beautifully complete with dark, moody makeup. Elegance by Kim added the finishing touch with a voguestyled ponytail. The groom mirrored the bride’s modern style with a handsome Groomsman Suit ensemble featuring a modern silhouette.
