Y’all. I freaking LOVE City Hall elopements here in Chicago. Especially with a couple as sweet and fun-loving as Huan and Quentin. This stylish duo met in Austria, where they were both studying abroad, and currently live in Southern Illinois. With Quentin being French, Huan being American, and their friends and family scattered around the world, the couple decided to plan an elopement here in Chicago. 6 of their closest friends flew in from all over the globe to celebrate this special occasion, making the day even more fun!
Huan and Quentin brought their A-game with their outfits, steering away from traditional black and white and opting for classy and colorful attire. I mean, seriously, how FAB are those pops of color?! After a few quick prep photos at the Cambria Hotel, Huan and Quentin had the sweetest first look by the Chicago Theater. If you’ve ever wondered if you should do a first look, this should convince you! These two were so genuinely excited!
We then met up with their friends and walked over to City Hall to make everything official. If you haven’t been inside City Hall here, you should go – the hallways are SO ELEGANT! After the “I do’s”, the whole group walked around the Riverwalk for portraits. We could not have asked for a more gorgeous morning: sunny, warm, everything you want in a Chicago Spring day! We finished the morning at Cochon Volant, a delicious French Brasserie in the Loop, where the group settled in with some champagne. Because why not?! 🙂
Huan and Quentin, thank you so much for allowing me to spend the day with you and your friends! I had SUCH a blast! Congratulations and enjoy these sneak peeks!
