It’s been less than two weeks since Carly + Aaron’s wedding, and their photos are up! It was a non-stop day of fun with all their Jewish wedding traditions taking place at the Downtown Chicago Loews Hotel! Not to mention their Hora dance that included jump roping, skits and tossing the bride up in the air?! There were so many great photos, it was hard to narrow down the best ones for this blog post! Be sure to scroll down to see all 60+ images!

As a photographer, this is one of my favorite spots to shoot at the Loews Chicago. It’s not always available if there are too many people in the lobby, but it was open for Carly + Aaron! We may have asked a few people to move, but guests are more than happy to do their part for the bride and groom!

The Blackstone Hotel is a classic and beautiful kept hotel in Chicago. The interior decor is unreal! Not to mention that it has historical family significance! Love their timeless look paired with a classic interior space like the Blackstone!

Manikas Designs knocked it out of the park with the decor. Love everything about this room and the decor to compliment it! As a wedding photographer, its our job to make sure the decor looks as phenomenal in a photo as it does in real life (if not better)! As much as I love this picture, it was pretty surreal to actually be in this room!
