Chicago Covid Wedding Photos at Radisson Blu with Nicole + Drew
In the midst of a unique wedding season, Nicole + Drew decided to hold a small outdoor Chicago Radisson Blu wedding on their original wedding date! The rooftop space at the Radisson Blu was the perfect space for their closets friends and family!
Love endures through all the ups and downs, enjoy Nicole + Drew’s Chicago covid wedding photos! As a wedding photographer, I love the layers in this second picture. The organic flow and colors of the flowers balanced with the vertical lines of Chicago buildings! The leading lines point right to the bride and groom!
While their original wedding called for a grand celebration with ALL their friends and family, as a Chicago covid wedding photographer, I also enjoyed the intimacy that comes with adhering to city and state guidelines for their Chicago Covid wedding photos. There is less going on, less moving parts than on a ‘normal wedding day’ and everything feels more intimate!

Those Valentino shoes!
Nicole made her way to the Radisson Blu terrace for their first look!
Doesn’t matter if Covid changed their wedding plans, a first look is always magical!
Nicole’s beautiful wedding dress train!
They wanted to make sure to have a family photo together! =)
The Chicago Radisson Blu is a large hotel and they can accommodate a large amount of guests. So when the wind kicked up outside, they moved the ceremony to an indoor space in the hotel! When indoors, guests wore their masks to keep everyone safe! Nothing says Covid wedding photos and a sign of the times than masks.
Shout out to Jan from Parties, Events and More and the team from Bloom City Flowers in setting this Chuppah up indoors after trying to make it work outside-
Guests were seated 6 ft apart.

Right before the sun set on their day, we grabbed this quick photo! Love the sun flare backlighting Nicole + Drew!
Guests were treated to a choreographed first dance!
Congratulations again Nicole + Drew! So happy that through a Covid pandemic, you both were still married and were able to celebrate with your family + friends! Looking forward to our extended post wedding photoshoot throughout Chicago! =)
