The Langham Hotel Chicago Wedding Photos
Last year a new luxury hotel opened its doors in Chicago, The Langham Hotel Chicago! It is located in the heart of downtown Chicago on Wabash and the Chicago River…in the iconic Mies van der Rhoe building! It was a snowy winter day for a New Years Eve wedding and we captured some amazing wedding pictures! All the amazing vendors were wonderfully coordinated by Lauren from Ryan Alexander Events who helped make the day go by smoothly! She takes care of all the little, yet crucial, behind the scenes details!

Thank you to past clients, Dennis + Susan, for referring me to the bride- most of my business comes from referrals…I appreciate your support!!!
First off: One of my favorite wedding photos from The Langham Chicago…as a wedding photographer, I love to incorporate architectural elements into my photos…and I LOVED these glass pendants hanging from the Langham lobby ceiling! Make sure you see the bride and groom in the middle! =)
The bride had a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier wedding gown. I hung the dress in the window and added a little creative element by finding a reflection in the mirror! I love the clean + modern design of the Langham suite!

Such a soft and beautiful photo!
I love this picture of the bride! What a great job Sonia Roselli‘s team did with her hair!
We had a ‘First Look’ moment before our creative wedding photography session…and this was such a special emotional moment between the two of them! The emotions just came out of nowhere…totally caught me off guard – but I was able to capture the moment! Moments like these remind me why I love my job as a wedding photographer!

I love their smiles!
The Chicago Langham lobby with the bride and groom-
The bride loved this huge wrought iron gate in the Langham – so we made sure to grab a photo with it!

The Chicago Langham uses pink and gold as their colors…so I thought to incorporate some of those colors into the wedding photos! I love the lines and textures in this picture
More texture and gold colors in this photo…and the iconic Chicago Marina City architecture in the background!

Winter Wedding Photos in the Chicago Snow!
We stepped outside in the cold Chicago winter weather for a few photos! I wanted to showcase the lights under the Langham awning!
I love these snow filled winter wedding photos! The holiday lights in the background are so romantic!
Though they look so happy and peaceful on their wedding…rest assured…we couldn’t wait to get out of the cold winter Chicago weather! =)
