Chicago Micro Wedding Photos Aboard the Odyssey at Navy Pier
Hailey and Tom were to be married on June 27th, 2020 at the Chicago Cultural Center…perhaps one of the most beautiful wedding venues in our city!
Then coronavirus happened. Weddings all over the country have been postponed as hotels and venues closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We photographed a small micro wedding at the bride’s house at the beginning of shelter in place. With Illinois just entering Phase 4, Hailey and Tom were still able to wed on their original wedding date – though at a different place. In order to abide by all the guidelines, they were married on the top deck of the Odyssey Lake Michigan at Navy Pier!
To see more photos of Hailey + Tom, be sure to check out their Lincoln Park + North Ave engagement photos!
After a week of rain clouds, the skies opened up for the bride and groom! Perfect weather aboard the Odyssey with the skyline in the background for their Chicago micro wedding photos!
During this COVID season, life has changed dramatically in the wedding + event industry. Microweddings are becoming all the more popular as couples in love STILL WANT TO GET MARRIED! If you were looking for a wedding venue to host your micro wedding, consider The Odyssey or another boat with a rooftop outdoor space!
Looking forward to photographing Hailey and her mom next year at their 1yr vow renewal – where they can celebrate with all their friends and family!
Custom monogrammed wedding purse – their wedding date was on the inside flap!
Love the pops of color from her lipstick and tattoos
Though a micro wedding often times means a condensed wedding day schedule, we still had a ‘first look’ with Hailey’s father-
The rooftop of the Odyssey for their Chicago microwedding!
The groom’s blue suit not only matched his alma mater (Michigan), it also looked great aboard the boat!
Love how this photo captures this sweet moment between them-
A smaller micro wedding brings all the most important family and friends together!
An affectionate father daughter relationship-
It’s the little details that make this wedding photo their own. The tattoos on her arm and the M logo on his tie-
Just the most picture perfect clouds for their portraits.
After their wedding ceremony, it was only a short walk down the stairs to their reception!
Congrats Hailey + Tom! It was the most perfect day and space for your micro wedding! Can’t wait to photograph you both next year!
