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!
