Langham Chicago Wedding Photos // Sharon + Brian!

Langham Chicago // St Ignatius Church // Adler Planetarium Wedding Photos 

Sharon + Brian were married just two weeks ago at Holy Family Catholic Church located next to St Ignatius College Prep! They started their day at the #1 Best Hotel in America (as rated by US News + World Reports), the Langham Chicago! After their ceremony, we stopped by the Adler Planetarium for a few wedding pictures with the Chicago skyline! Shout out to Carrie and her team from Birch Design Studio for making sure the day went smoothly!

If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Sharon + Brian’s Chicago Engagement Photos, with pictures along the Riverwalk, Millennium Park, and Buckingham Fountain!

UPDATE: I wanted to share an excerpt from an email Brian sent last week after seeing this blog post!

“We wanted to say thank you again for your great work at capturing the essence of our wedding. The photographs that you have posted thus far on the blog are stunning and we are excited about seeing the rest to the wedding pictures. Sharon can’t stop staring at the pictures and reliving the wedding day in her head.”

So I just did some background research, Holy Family Catholic Church was one of a handful buildings that survived the Chicago fire! A beautiful church located next to St Ignatius College Prep.
