Samantha + Jason’s LondonHouse Wedding Photos!

LondonHouse Chicago Hotel Wedding Pictures 

Samantha + Jason chose one of Chicago’s finest luxury hotels for their wedding venue. The LondonHouse Chicago boasts one of the best rooftops in the city! As a wedding photographer, I am always looking at the unique architectural elements of a venue, and the LondonHouse has plenty! Not only do they have a bar and lounge area, they have a ‘cupola‘ that they reserve for their brides and grooms! In this rooftop cupola, you have the perfect view of the Wrigley Building and Michigan Ave!

If you aren’t sure what the ‘cupola’ looks like…here it is…on the LondonHouse rooftop…21 floors above Michigan Avenue and Wacker Drive.

Love this staircase near the lobby of the LondonHouse

Photographer’s Tip: Step back and see the larger picture. While the staircase is beautiful, the chandelier is the perfect graphical/luxury element to balance out the photo!
