Chicago Loft Wedding Photos at Savage Smyth
Savage Smyth is one of Chicago’s newest rooftop venues and it boasts a gorgeous view of the Chicago skyline! They can host all kinds of events, including weddings. In fact, this was only the third wedding at Savage Smyth! So as a wedding photographer, I feel it is my contribution to the Chicago wedding industry to put these wedding photos out there for future brides and grooms! Shout out to Alicia from Clementine Custom Events for pulling together all these moving parts! Loft weddings are great, but they take a ton of coordination. Be sure to hire a professional wedding planner!

Definitely had to take a photo on the rooftop with the skyline in the background! As a wedding photographer, I have photographed the Chicago skyline from so many different perspectives…and I will say, this view is unique to Savage Smyth!

What a epic place to get married! There are so few rooftop spaces in Chicago that could host a wedding…Savage Smyth is one of them!

I love the skylights that add just the perfect amount of light into the loft space!
L & K put so much thought into each space…it was a wedding photographer’s dream!
It’s always great when clients order professional prints from their engagement session to display at the wedding!
What an amazing first dance picture! The hanging lights, the skylight, the pillars of the loft and the perfect couple framed by the floral pieces surrounding their sweetheart table!
She surprised him with a groom’s cake!
Freshly made donuts…mmmmmmm
Rooftop Wedding Sparkler Exit
We ended the night on the rooftop with sparklers! One benefit of having two photographers at your wedding, two vantage points of the same moment! We tried to coordinate everyone in the shape of a heart!
Thanks L & K for having me as your wedding photographer! It turned out to be the perfect day for you guys! Great find in Savage Smyth…I had never even heard of it until you contacted me! Congrats again!
