Michelle + Seth | Summerhouse Chicago

Are you planning a second wedding?

We have some really sweet inspo for you – check out how adorable Michelle and Seth are at their sweet summertime wedding.

Michelle, a local family photographer whose work is absolutely adorable (see her website here), hired Jess Diaz to capture all of the great moments from their special day. Thanks, Jess, for these darling pictures!


Even though it was in the middle of 2020 and mandates for events had a maximum guest count, Michelle and Seth had always planning on only inviting 50 people. Fortunately, they didn’t have to scramble during the planning process.

Summerhouse, where they hosted their ceremony and reception, gave them the opportunity to host the events outdoors. Check out how darling the venue is!

With a summer vibe Summerhouse also mixes in the warm California feel, too. It’s darling yet super cool all at the same time.

Second Wedding

As a second wedding, their three little girls played a special role during the day. Consider the following ways to include kids in your wedding:

  • Make them a part of the wedding party
  • Allow them to make a speech
  • Bring them in to get ready with you in the morning
  • Provide time for special “new” family photos
  • Give them a ceremony reading
  • Save a special dance for them
  • Make them a part of your printed material

A COVID Wedding

For that added extra step because of COVID, Michelle and Seth provided guests with masks and sanitizer. And – they were able to have family view the ceremony virtually!
