New Years Eve Luxury Wedding Photos at the Four Seasons Chicago

Felice + Michael’s amazing New Years Eve luxury wedding pictures at the Chicago Four Seasons Hotel! Gorgeous decor by Flower Firm and coordinated flawlessly by Hope Weis from Hope Weis Consulting! Rendezvous Band provided the music + energy until the midnight when we rang in the New Year together! Parties like this make my job as a Chicago wedding photographer all the more fun! I haven’t been able to post on my “Best of the Best Wedding Photos of 2015” because I wanted to include some of these wedding pictures!
