Andrea & David’s Ultracool City Wedding (featuring a sassy purple dress!)


Welcome to another week full of funky wedding inspiration! 🙂 So how many of you are planning to wear a colored bridal dress on your special day? Today’s lovely bride Andrea chose to wear a gorgeous frothy purple-and-gold wedding gown and totally rocked it, as you will see in the photos on this page.

I’ve been wanting to share this ultracool non-traditional wedding with you for weeks and thankfully I can do so now. 🙂 Apart from wanting to showcase this bride & groom’s drop dead gorgeous funky style, I also want you to witness Chicago wedding photographer Candice Cusic‘s SPECTACULAR camera work. Candice is such a pleasure to correspond with and now she’s here to tell us more about Andrea & David’s extraordinary day:

Andrea and David traveled from Los Angeles to have their wedding at Chicago’s Gallery 1028. Andrea wore a custom gown in purple and gold tones, and killer gold shoes while David wore monogrammed Chuck Taylor shoes and offered the same to all of his groomsmen.

What made this wedding unique wasn’t the gorgeous purple gown, but the fact that they were referred to me by my previous clients, Lisa and Todd, and Lisa wore a custom gown in yellow. One colored gown brought me another colored gown. I love clients who choose to do something different on their wedding day, and colored gowns are always so striking and beautiful!

(I’m with you completely on that Candice!)

Didn’t I say they have awesome style? David’s custom Converse sneaks are printed with a combination of their names too!

So happy! More deets from Candice:

Andrea and David also offered me plenty of time for a bride and groom portrait session before their ceremony, which is always a bonus for the photographer. After shooting their first look at Chicago’s Water Tower, we ventured a few miles away from the city and its tourists and this simple gift of time paid off in photographs of the two of them at a hot dog stand and images of them in front of a beautiful purple wall.

Get ready to see even MORE fun & creative portraits of this fetching duo!

I just love it when couples show off their super fun personalities (not to mention their ultra sassy style!) at their wedding — even if it entails defying tradition. Thank you so much Candice for sharing your breathtaking images with us and congratulations, Andrea and David! 🙂
