Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) is no stranger to bold statements, but on a day bathed in sunshine, Emma & Burgess’s MCA Chicago wedding stole the show! As your wedding photographer, Sarah Nader, I was thrilled to capture the vibrant energy and heartfelt moments of their union, set against the stunning backdrop of the city’s art haven.
The Ritz-Carlton buzzed with pre-wedding excitement as Emma and Burgess prepared for their big day. A touch of emotion filled the air as Emma, resplendent in her gown, shared a tearful first look with her dad, a moment of tenderness captured for eternity.
Stepping outside the MCA, the city unfolded like a wedding tapestry. With the iconic museum as a breathtaking backdrop, Emma and Burgess exchanged vows under the clear blue sky. Laughter mingled with tears as their promises resonated through the crowd, creating a ceremony filled with love and light.
Time constraints meant we had to keep portraits concise, but the MCA’s grand staircase provided the perfect setting. We captured their radiant smiles and joyful embrace, weaving their love into the fabric of the museum’s architectural beauty.
Back inside, the celebration kicked into high gear. Heartfelt speeches, punctuated by laughter and a few happy tears, warmed the hearts of all present. Then came the first dance, a romantic twirl that included their daughter, a heartwarming reminder that their love story continues to grow.
As the night unfolded, the dance floor became a whirlwind of joy. Guests, young and old, moved to the rhythm, their laughter echoing through the museum halls. The MCA’s modern energy blended seamlessly with the timeless spirit of love, creating a truly unforgettable atmosphere.
Emma & Burgess, your MCA Chicago wedding was a vibrant dance of love, art, and the city’s infectious spirit. Thank you for letting me capture the beauty of your union, and may your journey together be as bold and inspiring as the masterpieces that surround you.
