TWA Photographic Artist-Chicago Wedding Photographers

Real Weddings: Angela + David

What happens when you mix a speakeasy cocktail lounge, live music and a wedding? Magic! As Chicago wedding photographers we know that every wedding will be unique but this is one of our favorites to date. Angela + David allowed us to be apart of their wedding reception at The Bassment in Chicago and it was a night we won’t forget!

Angela + David prepared for their evening at the Westin Chicago River North; impeccably dressed and ready for the evening we joined them for pictures prior to their reception. If you’re familiar with the live music scene in Chicago you may recognize Angela, she performs with the Verzatile Band every week at The Bassment and all over the country!

We had so much fun with our pair before the celebration even began. Their venue was not only stunning but also felt like home. Angela + David share a mutual love for music which made The Bassment their number one choice in choosing where to celebrate their marriage. This is a tip we always recommend as Chicago wedding photographers, whether it’s your venue or simply where you’ll share your first look, choose a spot that feels like home!

As the night continued our pair and their guests enjoyed drinks, hors d’oeuvres and some very delicious wedding cake! But the evening wouldn’t have been complete without music! Angela took the stage and even shared a duet with David to cap off a simply extraordinary celebration! Thank you Angela + David for sharing your love with us.
