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!

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!

Though a micro wedding often times means a condensed wedding day schedule, we still had a ‘first look’ with Hailey’s father-

The groom’s blue suit not only matched his alma mater (Michigan), it also looked great aboard the boat!

It’s the little details that make this wedding photo their own. The tattoos on her arm and the M logo on his tie-
