Luxury Chicago Wedding Photography at Drury Lane

July 15, 2022


black and white couples wedding portrait at drury lane in oakbrook illinois

Whewwwwie this wedding will undoubtedly be my biggest of the summer. Julie and Fernando found me on Instagram at the end of last year, and after shooting their engagement photos in January, I knew their wedding was going to be one massive party. With a bridal party of 26, they did not disappoint. From the moment they had their first look, these two were all smalls and laughs (with a few tears sprinkled in) the rest of the day. We were fortunate enough to avoid the rain long enough to get some killer wedding party photos, as well as the dreamiest couples portraits I’ve ever taken in an alleyway next to a dumpster, lol. Scroll to see some of my favorites from their day.

hi, i'm ARIELLE.

You can usually find me home with my golden retriever or day dreaming of my next trip to Italy.

I am a firm believer in living life with purpose and never missing the opportunity to experience something new. The Meyers-Briggs test says I am an INFJ with ESFJ qualities (an introverted extrovert, IYKYK), and my friends say I am the person they come to when they need comfort, advice, or fresh baked goods. I consider myself an empath, so special moments you share with your loved ones will likely get me all teary eyed and sentimental. I am not here to pretend life is picture perfect, but to capture genuine emotion and create timeless pieces of art to decorate your home. I’m constantly striving for perfection, but have a calming personality and am relatively easy going. 

When the camera is not around my neck, I am a big home body. I love hanging on the couch with my dog, making pasta, breads and desserts from scratch, squatting 400+ pounds in the gym, or plotting my next trip outside of the US. As a direct descendant of Italian immigrants, I feel most at home in Italy (and speak a bit of Italian, too.)



Arielle has photographed over 175 weddings across 12 states, 5 countries, and 3 continents. While her heart beats for coastal and countryside Italian weddings, she is willing to travel anywhere and everywhere to document your day.
