New Year’s Eve Wedding Photos at the Chicago Trump Tower!
The most amazing New Year’s Eve weddings at one of my favorite wedding venues in Chicago: Trump Tower! Beth from SQN Events made Lisa + Paul’s wedding dream come true! Kehoe Designs provided the amazing decor and ambiance! If you don’t have the time to scroll through their whole wedding blog post…at LEAST take a look at the best of the bunch…these first three!
This picture was taken right after they kissed at midnight! Happy 2015 Lisa + Paul!!! Thanks for having me as your wedding photographer!
It was Lisa’s childhood dream to get married on New Year’s Eve – and so they incorporated an image of a clock throughout their wedding! Here it is projected onto a Trump Tower pillar! And yes…the room decor by Kehoe Desings was unbelievable! There are more photos of this ballroom below!
And I have to share a photo on the Trump Tower terrace- One of the best views of Chicago! A shout out to Joy from the Trump for another wonderful job!

I love these next two photos of Lisa. I’ve photographed at the Trump Tower numerous times…and I have never photographed a bride in her suite at night! I love the glowing street lights below! What a romantic photo of Lisa! It almost looks like the Trump’s advertisement in the wedding magazines!
The glow of Halsted street lights behind her!
Beautiful portrait of Lisa!
Something blue: her grandmother’s ring tied on her bouquet
Meanwhile…else where in the Trump…Tom, my 2nd photographer, was capturing the guys getting ready-

I think I will just stop typing now…I think the photos speak for themselves!
One of the Best Terraces in Chicago
I love the view from the Trump terrace- I think it’s one of the best…if not thee best…views of downtown Chicago! We had to brave the cold weather to take photos on the terrace!
Gorgeous photo in black and white!
Wedding Pictures at the Trump
We walked around the Trump to take photos – it’s one of the reasons I love the Trump…the variety of places for pictures!

I think the mirrored globes are doing their thing! It’s time to ring in the New Year!
Happy New Year!!!
We stepped outside to take a couple photos with the fireworks happening down at Navy Pier! I love how the fireworks create a sparkling effect behind them!
Traditional Greek wedding favors for the guests!
Lisa + Paul…thank you for having me as your wedding photographer! It was an unbelievable night and I am thankful to have been apart of it! A shout out to Beth from SQN Events for pulling together this amazing event! What a way to ring in 2015!!!
