Maura and Matt’s Food Loving Outdoor Chicago Wedding by Madi Ellis Photography

Toady’s wedding is a great combination of urban lifestyle meets backyard garden dining. Maura and Matt were married on 17th February 2022 in Chicago, Illinois. The whole day was intimate, charming, relaxed and full of brilliant food and amazing light! This Outdoor Chicago Wedding started off with the couple visiting their favourite local haunts and then heading over to the Big Delicious Planet for their gorgeous low key ceremony. All followed by a feast of an outdoor reception. The low evening light adds a gorgeous golden hue to the photos which I just adore! Big thanks to Madi Ellis Photography for these lovely images.

Madi the photographer tells us more about the day

Maura + Matt got ready together in their hotel room in the Hoxton. It meant a lot to the two of them to share that moment together! After some dress help from Maura’s mother Tammy, we ventured out for some portraits around Logan Square. The couple had often frequented Lula Café when they had lived in the area, so we made sure to take some photos in front of the restaurant. We had called ahead earlier in the day for the chance to pop inside, which was a great opportunity to snag some pictures in the best seats in the house! After more photos by the infamous “Greetings from Chicago” mural, it was time to head over to their Big Delicious Planet Wedding. The couple were married by the bride’s father on a gorgeous evening in Chicago. As the sun began to set, Maura + Matt exchanged their beautiful vows in front of close friends and family. After their big kiss, the wedding guests filed toward the front of the venue to grab cocktails. Dinner soon followed. Maura’s sister made a speech, the couple smooched MANY times after friends clinked their glasses with forks, and everyone present had the best time. This Big Delicious Planet wedding was a magical affair, something I could only dream of. Love and sunshine encompassed the entire day for Maura + Matt. Congrats on a beautiful wedding
