A New Leaf Wedding Photography: Anna & Cody
I’m so pleased to share Anna and Cody’s A New Leaf wedding photography! This Chicago venue is filled with amber lights, colorful flowers, rich wood, and a lovely outdoor garden. Throw in a super cool couple, a custom lilac wedding gown and purple suit and it equals one amazing day! I asked Anna for more details!
Q. How/why did you choose your venue?
A. It was a unique and intimate space and suited our guest count. And their flowers are amazing.
Q. Why did you choose Candice to photograph your wedding?
A. She has a beautiful portfolio of work with rich imagery and a focus on candid moments and storytelling.
Q. What were some of your favorite moments on the wedding day?
A. I loved having a quiet moment with each other the morning of the wedding, before the chaos set in. We sat on the deck of our hotel room, drinking coffee and fine-tuning our vows.
Q. Which detail(s) did you like best about your wedding? This could be an element of decor, something unique about the venue, something you hand crafted, etc.
A. I loved how fun and colorful the whole event was. We didn’t need too much decor because the space itself was so beautiful, but the flowers were incredible and added the color and whimsy we love.
Q. Any other wedding vendors you recommend?
A. Our caterer was amazing. They not only provided food, but basically acted as our wedding planner. All of our vendors made the process painless and the event magical.
Q. Is there anything else you’d like to share about your wedding day? Any tips for couples currently planning their wedding?
A. We loved how much the whole wedding just felt natural and felt very “us” and I think our guests could sense that too. I think it’s important to stick to what feels right for the couple.
Q. What’s next on your calendar as a couple? You can tell us about your honeymoon, big moves, plans for family, new jobs, or anything else you’d like to share!
A. We’re excited to settle back into our regular life after all the excitement. We took a honeymoon to Sonoma and Big Sur and it was so nice to have a couple of weeks of relaxation and just enjoying each other’s company.
