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!

The Winter Garden had some gorgeous sunlight coming through glass ceiling!
Something sweet matching their wedding colors!
