AndreLaCour Photography Chicago Wedding Palmer House 1567

When the wedding season is in full swing, it’s always a challenge to keep the blog up to date. Here’s one of my 2012 weddings that I hadn’t blogged yet. Mandy was one of my favorite brides as she was absolutely electric! – so excited and in the moment, that she was a real joy to photograph. Eric, a soft spoken gentleman, showed his style on the dance floor with a dramatic twirl of his bride, lifting her off her feet to the crowds delight. It was an exquisite event with an A-list group of vendors and the incomparable old world glamour of the Palmer House. It was an unexpected honor to see Mandy and Eric’s photo in the new Palmer House ad (see the magazine spread here!). Congratulations to the happy couple!

How they met: Eric and Mandy met in graduate school in Chicago in 2009. Thorough many classes and group projects together, a friendship developed. Eric proposed in August 2011 and they were married at the Palmer House in August 2012.
