Best Rooftop for Wedding Photos at the LondonHouse Chicago

The LondonHouse has a ‘cupola’ on the rooftop that is reserved for photos with couples getting married at their hotel! Photographer’s Tip: Get a different vantage point! Don’t be afraid to climb up on the ledge to get a better view of the skyline!

Jenna + Amir’s Wedding Teaser Photos!

Big City Bride Photos at Chicago Cultural Center + Langham Hotel

Amir has been following my work for seven or eight years. His friends and sister had me as their wedding photographer and he experienced my work first hand as a groomsmen! Needless to say, I was honored to be asked to his wedding photographer after he asked Jenna for her hand in marriage!

There is more to come…this is just quick wedding teaser post from YESTERDAY’s festivities! Shout out to Chrissy from Big City Bride for helping make the day go smoothly!

Wedding Details:
Getting Ready Venue: Langham Chicago Hotel
Ceremony + Reception Venue: Chicago Cultural Center
Planner + Coordinator: Big City Bride
Florals + Decor: Yanni Design Studio
Photographers: Nakai Photography
Dress: Watters
Band: Green Light
Catering: Limelight Catering

The Chicago Cultural Center has an amazing Tiffany Dome. One of the most amazing places to get married in Chicago! Yanni Design Studio knocked it out of the park with their decor! Photographer’s Tip: Have the right gear for the right moment. This picture required usage of an ultra wide lens to get the full dome into the photo! It is expensive and large…but when you need it…it is amazing!

Thanks to Big City Bride + The Langham for making sure all the logistics were in place for Bailey to make an appearance!

Photographer’s Tip: Incorporate architecture into their wedding photos! The Chicago Cultural Center has the most amazing staircase lobby!

Val + Kenny’s Best Langham Chicago Wedding Photos!

Val + Kenny’s Best Langham Chicago Wedding Photos // Riverwalk + Pink Taxi

It was a epic Chicago wedding. Three languages were spoken: English, Mandarin, and Portuguese! It was one of those weddings that bring out the best of our city! There were so many sweet moments throughout…from when Val opened her gift (a Chanel bag!) to when she surprised Kenny with a choreographed dance! It was a joy to be their wedding photographer and document their special day at the Langham Chicago Hotel!

A shout out to the Langham Chicago staff for another flawless wedding (Davina + Allison!), Brittany from Revel Decor for the gorgeous pieces and Lauren from LOLA Event Productions for coordinating!

Lily + Han’s LondonHouse Chicago Wedding Teaser Pictures!

LondonHouse Wedding Teaser Pictures

Lily + Hans are probably just getting back to their Presidential Suite after dancing the night away at their LondonHouse Chicago Hotel wedding reception! I wanted to make sure they had a few wedding teaser photos to share at their brunch tomorrow morning!

There is so much more to say about their wedding, so be sure come back in a couple weeks to see more photos from their special day! Shout out to the bridal party for enduring the photo session on this warm and humid Chicago spring day!

Breanna from Shannon Gail Wedding & Events did a great job coordinating and planning, Steve from the LondonHouse made sure everything went along smoothly, and Vale of Enna did a wonderful job with the florals and decor!

We ended their wedding day with a photo along the Chicago Riverwalk…just across the street from the LondonHouse! Photographer’s Tip: Include iconic architecture without being cliche! Those who live in Chicago know that the clock tower in the background is the Wrigley Building!
Chicago riverwalk wedding photo by LondonHouse Hotel

The LondonHouse has a rooftop area for brides and grooms to take photos with the Chicago skyline in the background!

One of my favorite aspects of the LondonHouse is their interior decor. They marry vintage and modern luxury in the most perfect way! Look at the detail in the ceiling and that chandelier! I also love the palm leaves peeking in on the sides!

One last photo of the LondonHouse ballroom. It has a view of the Chicago River as you can see the Marina Towers through the windows!

Chicago LondonHouse wedding reception picture Congrats again Lily + Hans! It’s been 8 years in the making…but it was worth it! Thanks for wanting to take photos as much as I enjoy taking them! Can’t wait to share more!
