Wedding Photos at the Waldorf Chicago
The Waldorf Astoria Chicago lobby makes for the perfect backdrop for their wedding pictures! I also love how the Christmas tree gives this lobby a sense of time and place. After all, it’s a New Years Eve wedding!
This was one of my favorites from the day. Photographer’s Tip: step back and ‘see your surroundings’
We stepped outside to brave the cold for a few photos in the Waldorf driveway!
Waldorf Chicago Wedding Ceremony Pictures
Simply gorgeous ceremony setup at the Waldorf! Great job Vale of Enna!
Tears were shed in the background! Theresa had no idea how her bridesmaids were reacting to their wedding ceremony. As a wedding photographer, I love capturing these moments that the bride and groom never ‘saw’ on their wedding day!
New Years Eve Wedding Reception Pictures
This sugar flower by Bittersweet pastry was unreal!
Signature cocktails for New Years Eve!
First dance photos! Photographer’s Tip: Stepping off the dance floor is a bold move, but you are sometimes rewarded with an amazing picture!
Everything is ready for the countdown to a New Year!
Happy New Year!
What a way to ring in the New Year! With all your friends and family! This is my fourth New Year’s Eve wedding in a row – and they are the best!
The after party is all set up at the Waldorf
Get the fog machine going!
One last photo to end the night – That’s the bride and groom on the balcony above Waldorf Astoria sign!
