Harold Washington Wedding Photos // Margaret + Tobi!

Harold Washington Library Winter Garden + Buckingham Fountain Wedding Pictures

Little did they know, that when Tobi + Margaret danced at their Senior prom together, that they would dance together as bride and groom on their wedding night! Their wedding ceremony was held at the historic St Luke’s River Forest Church and their reception at the breathtaking Winter Garden at the Harold Washington Library! A shout out to Camille from Camille Victoria Events for planning this gorgeous wedding!

If you haven’t already seen them, be sure to check out Margaret + Tobi’s Chicago Engagement Photos! A special ‘hello’ to all the family and friends who traveled from Nigeria for their special wedding day!

Be sure to scroll through all the best wedding photos from their day, but up first are three of my favorites! This first one is on the bridge in the Winter Garden on the top floor of the Harold Washington Library!
