Greek Wedding Photos at Annunciation + Blackstone // Catrina + Tom

Greek Wedding Photos at Annunciation Cathedral + The Blackstone Hotel

Catrina + Tom were married about two weeks ago at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral in downtown Chicago and celebrated at the iconic Blackstone Hotel! Catrina coordinated her look with the classic interior decor of The Blackstone! Since the Blackstone is centrally located, they opted to have their photos taken at The Adler Planetarium + Buckingham Fountain!

Shout out Tom from Manikas Designs who not only designed everything, but also helped to coordinate the day!

Be sure to scroll through to see all 60 images in the blog post, but up first is one of my favorites in the Blackstone lobby. This looks like a wedding magazine advertisement!

Brides and grooms flock to the Adler Planetarium for one thing…the iconic view of the Chicago skyline! Catrina + Tom had another special reason…it’s where they had their first date!

Buckingham Fountain Wedding Photos

The weather was absolutely perfect for photos at Buckingham Fountain! Photographer’s Tip: The Buckingham Fountain only shoots up 150 feet for 20min each hour…gotta time it right…or get lucky!
