Back in January 2014 we were invited to photograph Jim & Lela’s wedding in Miami. They’re a classic, Chicago-loving couple who wanted to bring all of their friends to sunny Florida to celebrate with them during the cold Chicago winter. It was a total success. After getting ready at Essex House, a hotel with true character, featuring Miami’s Art Deco-Classic boutique style, they got married at The Temple House.
Photography was super important to Jim & Lela, so they gave us enough time to explore the strip and create photographs that feature the beautiful Miami coast. Even though they had a HUGE wedding party, each of their friend’s contributed to the spirit of the day.
Their reception was a party to remember – Fat Head cardboard cutouts, exotic dancers, heartfelt speeches from friends and family, and a seriously awesome dance party – no details were left out. But most importantly, Jim & Lela are just plain mad in love with one another and their friends.
