Old St. Pat’s & Osteria Via Stato


A & A | Chicago Wedding

Anslee and Adam grew up in different parts of the south.  Having an intimate Chicago wedding meant they were able to introduce their family and friends to this beautiful city.


This photo above is absolutely one of my favorites from Andre LaCour Photography.  The detail is gorgeous!


About a month prior to the wedding, we met for coffee.  They wanted help executing their wedding day ideas and wanted her out of town guests to navigate the day with ease.


Anslee’s vendors were nothing less than remarkable.  For example, the flowers by Justin at Cut Floral complimented Anslee’s personality – bright, lovely, and full of life!


Adam and his groomsmen got ready at Adam & Anslee’s absolutely stunning condo.


Wedding Ceremony

With a personal connection to the church, Ansley chose Old St. Pat’s in Chicago for her wedding ceremony.  This shot below is darling…. her father leaned in for a quick kiss just before they walked down the aisle.


Anslee, an elementary music teacher, incorporated music into her day in a few different ways.  Two of her darling students sing at the ceremony.  Anslee also sang herself!  One person said, “I had no idea her voice would sound like a Disney princess!”  She’s amazing!



Andre and his assistant, Maria, took the pair around Chicago for post-ceremony photos.  You are going to love how animated Anslee and Adam are throughout this photo shoot!


Wedding Reception

With gold accents on each personal reception item, you’ll find gold on  a classic Chicago poster, the ecort cards, table numbers, and even the sleek wedding cake.  Private transportation shuttled out of town guests to Osteria via Stato for a delicious, relaxing luncheon.
