The Blackstone Hotel is a classic and beautiful kept hotel in Chicago. The interior decor is unreal! Not to mention that it has historical family significance! Love their timeless look paired with a classic interior space like the Blackstone!

Manikas Designs knocked it out of the park with the decor. Love everything about this room and the decor to compliment it! As a wedding photographer, its our job to make sure the decor looks as phenomenal in a photo as it does in real life (if not better)! As much as I love this picture, it was pretty surreal to actually be in this room!
