City Winery Wedding Photos // Nobu Chicago Wedding
It was supposed to rain all day on Hunter + Kristen’s wedding day. At least that’s what the forecast said. Yet the clouds held the rain back until after their outdoor ceremony wedding was finished! The City Winery Chicago has a beautiful outdoor space for weddings and events…an area that might have been crucial due to the pandemic. However, with COVID cases declining and vaccination rates increasing in Chicago, they were able to have the wedding they hoped for!
Here are a few of our favorites from the day, be sure to scroll down to see 60+ photos from their wedding day! Since Buckingham Fountain was just recently turned on, after being off during the pandemic, we made sure to take a few photos there!

Beautiful wedding portrait of Kristen! I love how you can see the details on the back of her gown and matching details in her hairpiece!
The groom was having his portraits taken as his father helped him with his tuxedo-
First look for these two! The Nobu Chicago has large suites that allowed us the space to have a first look!
They are both so expressive and it really makes for amazing pictures- I just love looking at these!
Hunter was excited to say the least!
Not sure what was happening, but Kristen didn’t waste the opportunity to kiss her soon to be husband!
We had Buckingham Fountain to ourselves! Such a romantic photo showcasing Chicago’s famous architecture in the background!
Kristen was the real champ during this photoshoot as it was a little cold and a ‘little’ breezy! She looks so relaxed and happy!

We make a stop at the Chicago Riverwalk to capture a few pictures! Nothing says Chicago like our bridges, river and the Marina Towers (in the background)!

City Winery is located in the West Loop of Chicago, an area with an industrial feel. City Winery kept that vibe with the exposed brick when they renovated their venue space!
Such a romantic ‘secret garden’ feel in the middle of Chicago!
The bride got a few extra kisses before the ceremony started!
No words are necessary…their City Winery Chicago wedding photos tell the story =)
