Meghan and Dan Bridgeport Art Center Wedding

Nov 29, 2018

Meghan and Dan were married on September 22nd and partied at the Ace Hotel, Chicago Publishing House, and Bridgeport Art Center’s Skyline Loft.

These two met in high school while they were both serving on the executive board of their student council. They started dating in college after they both ended up in Philadelphia at two different universities. After about 8 years of dating, they were finally engaged at the bottom of a million steps at the Ponta de Piedade grotto on Lagos, Portugal.

Meghan and Dan’s Skyline Loft Wedding

We love the venues they picked out, too. They wanted to have their big Irish-Mexican wedding at the Bridgeport Art Center’s Skyline Loft, a 109-year-old manufacturing building, which perfectly captured the Chicago “feeling” of their wedding.

They started things out right, with Dan and the men getting ready at the Ace Hotel while Meghan and the ladies prepared at the Chicago Publishing House. There was so much love and laughter as everyone prepared for the day. The girls played around, even jumping on the bed in the morning. As the day progressed, a more romantic and sentimental tone was set as beautiful, hand-written letters were exchanged. Meghan also made sure to take a moment with her parents before the ceremony. All throughout the day we were struck by the simple moments like these. The bride, groom and their family were so present.

Meghan was so excited about the first look between her and Dan. And we loved the look of adoration on Dan’s face when he saw his bride for the first time. Their first look was filled with laughter and natural joy. The gorgeous autumn blue sky was a stunning backdrop for these first moments between the bride and groom. After a first look, it was time for portraits with this bridal party. They sure know how to have fun! We took pictures all along the waterfront, then headed to the ceremony on a trolley. And even though they’d shared a first look, Meghan was so excited to walk down that aisle—her expression was perfect! And Dan had that same look of joy once they got to their first dance as husband and wife.

But, overall, our favorite moment had to be when Meghan and Dan shared a burger together at the reception. Their first date was at Five Guys in Oak Park (http://www.fiveguys.com/), and this was a great way to call back to their roots!
