Autumn Chicago wedding

One of the benefits of being in the wedding industry is that you get to travel and see places that possibly you would not get to see.
Katerina and Costa’s wedding was very special for us as we had never been to Chicago before and also we had covered Costa’s sister’s wedding in Greece a few years previously and were very fond of the family.
In many ways, Chicago has everything you could want from a great international city—beautiful buildings, amazing food and entertainment, and a history of contributing to art, culture, and technology on a global scale. Add to that list its idyllic lakeside location and diverse population of friendly people. As the city that invented them, skyscrapers are a big part of Chicago’s heritage. Whatever your taste, there’s a vast amount of art to enjoy in the city’s museums, galleries, and public spaces. Alongside many great restaurants and bars, there are lots of great wedding venues that contribute towards some fantastic wedding reception parties. 

“Chicago is the city by the lake. Being situated next to one of the world’s largest lakes makes Chicago feel like it has a coastline, and in many ways, it does. Lakeside parks, trails, and sandy beaches are a hive of activity in summer.”

About the photographer
George Michalas

Nestled amidst the ancient magic of Athens, I weave stories of love and laughter into timeless photographs. But my journey began far from the sun-drenched Greek shoreline. Born under the vibrant skies of South Africa, I shot my first wedding back in 1997, in stunning Cape Town. More than just a photographer, I'm your confidante, your Greek guide, and your silent observer. With a blend of South African warmth and Greek passion, I'll turn your special day into memories that last a lifetime.
