Cafe Brauer Wedding – Kristen & Chris

RMP Couples

No one dreams of 40-degree rain and 30 MPH winds on their wedding day. But sometimes, that's what Mother Nature dishes up. Had you spent all day watching Chris look at Kristen, you would have never known the winds were whipping fiercely around their Cafe Brauer wedding, because as soon as these two saw each other, nothing else really mattered. Smiles never ceased and what I will forever remember is the look Chris got on his face every time he looked at Kristen, particularly when she didn't know it. There is no other word to describe that more subtle version of his smile than gratitude. While there were so many lovely moments throughout the entire day, here is a sneak peek at a few that feel especially unique to Kristen & Chris' Cafe Brauer wedding day.

    I am shedding such happiness and beauty through my tears as I view Kristen and Chris’s
    photos. The photos capture special and intimate moments.
    I appreciate Rebecca and her
    team’s professionalism and caring selves. Also, as the mother of the bride, I appreciated the taps on my shoulder during the evening in asking if there were any photos I would like her to take. Thank you, Rebecca and team- Karen Bradley

Rebecca and her team were amazing; they were extremely creative and professional and yet still made the process seem effortless and fun! I would highly recommend Rebecca and her team! I look forward to working with them again in the future! Thank you Rebecca and team!!!

    I’ve heard the phrase “the picture just doesn’t do it justice” hundreds of times. I can say with certainty that that phrase has absolutely no place in this gallery. Rebecca and her team were friendly, fun and professional and they all handled the raging-wind-weather-conditions in stride. (Not to mention they captured the most beautiful pictures of Chris and Kristen featuring AN UMBRELLA IN DOWNTOWN CHICAGO! No easy feat.) It is amazing to see the love that I witnessed that day perfectly reflected in these photos. Thanks for doing the DeGrande’s big day plenty of justice and then some! 🙂
