Winter Wedding Photos at the Chicago Intercontinental Michigan Avenue Hotel

So excited to share these three pictures from todays wedding at the iconic Chicago Intercontinental Magnificent Mile Hotel! Jahna + Jordy have so many amazing photos, but I wanted to share these three right away…so they can enjoy them at tomorrows breakfast!

I met the bride and groom when I was photographing Matthew + Mari’s wedding a couple years ago! Matthew + Jordy are brothers! It was great to see so many familiar faces at this wedding!

Shout out to Jan Ehrenberg from Parties, Events and More and Chris Schmidt from the Intercontinental Chicago for planning and executing this beautiful winter wedding! Every thing went flawlessly!

The bride and groom braved the frigid cold weather to take a few photos outside on Michigan Avenue!  They wanted to incorporate a little Chicago architecture into their wedding pictures!

One of my favorite places to take photos inside the Chicago Intercontinental is on the bridge in Michael Jordan’s restaurant! Found a couple cool reflections for this creative wedding picture! With this wedding being held in the wintertime, it’s great to have a venue that is so photogenic!

Though I’ve photographed a good number of weddings at the Intercontinental Magnificent Mile…I had never seen this staircase before! I’m a wedding photographer that loves staircases…we just had to take a photo with it! I love how the spiral staircase just frames them perfectly!
