Intercontinental Magnificent Mile Wedding Photos!

Chicago Intercontinental Magnificent Mile Wedding Photos – The Bean, Millennium Park

Xinying + Simon were just married 11 days ago, but I wanted to turn these photos around quickly so they could view them before their wedding ceremony in China! Their Chicago wedding ceremony + reception was held at the historic Chicago Intercontinental Magnificent Mile! It was a rare snowy April day, and the bride and groom insisted on heading out to take photos at The Bean in Millennium Park! It snowed for an hour before we left the Intercontinental…but while driving over, the snow relented and we were able to get some great pictures! As their wedding photographer, I made sure to stay flexible and hear my clients wants and needs throughout the day!

Great job planning and coordinating by Jan Ehrenberg of Parties, Events & More! Gorgeous florals and decor by Blooming City Flowers!

Korean Paebaek Wedding Ceremony Chicago

It was fun to photograph Simon + Xinying’s family during the traditional Korean wedding ceremony (called Paebaek). Here the parents throw chestnuts and dates to say how many boys and girls the future couple will have!
