Best Chicago Wedding Photos at The Fairmont, Wrigley Building + Buckingham Fountain
Sarah + JT were college sweethearts at Purdue and they celebrated their wedding at the Fairmont Chicago! The Father of the Bride shared at the reception that a young Sarah had once lined up a bunch Hotwheels in a wedding ceremony and had the cars proceeding down an aisle! Needless to say, I think she was excited to be marrying her best friend!

The Fairmont Chicago Getting Ready Photos
Photographer’s Tip: Framing – sometimes you find something to ‘frame’ the subject – like this mirror!
Her Kate Spade wedding shoes!
There just happened to be a glass sphere at the Fairmont, so I made sure to take a creative photo with it!
A fun photo with her bridesmaids before everyone slips into their gowns!
The new ‘first look’ reveal! I love the expressions on their faces!
Meanwhile the groom’s father never misses an opportunity to prank his son…even on his wedding day! (those aren’t his tuxedo pants)

The wedding party traveled to St Josephat Church for their Catholic wedding ceremony.
Sarah has the most expressive eyes – and I love the smile she is giving her soon to be husband!

The bride and groom had a little impromptu dance set with some street performers-
The Wrigley Building has a beautiful view down the Chicago River! The perfect spot for wedding photos!
Had to take a photo in the middle of Michigan Avenue!
Buckingham Fountain Wedding Pictures
Photographer’s Tip: The in-between moments are often the most spontaneous and fun! Sarah has the best expression here!
Photographer’s Tip: See what is new! As we were walking back to the trolley I saw this double sun flare blinding my eyes! It was caused by the reflection off of the building on the right hand side of the frame! So we made sure to take this photo before getting on the trolley – Double sun flare!

The bride and groom made quite the entrance!
This girl likes “Party in the USA” – no joke!
We had to finish the night with a couple photos with this Fairmont chandelier – it’s so romantic!
