A river, a boat and a staircase! Nina + Robert’s Wedding Photos!

Chicago Wedding Photos!

Oh glorious Chicago! You are famous for your architecture and who else would appreciate all that you are on their wedding day than…and architect! And what better way to enjoy Chicago’s architecture on a wedding than to have your wedding ceremony on the Chicago river! The classic Chicago Wendella boats were the perfect venue! Their reception was held at another classic Chicago icon…the Rookery building designed by Daniel Burnham & John Root with the lobby remodeled by Franklin Lloyd Wright!

Before we get into more details from Nina + Robert’s wedding…here’s one of my favorites of the two of them on the Rookery spiral staircase!

We walked around the Rookery building to take some photos on their iconic spiral staircase!

Though Chicago has a lot of buildings, you will not find these stairs in any other building-

Instead of cutting their wedding cake, they followed their Norwegian tradition and broke one of the rings together!

Their first dance! I wanted to include the staircase in their picture!
