Winter Wedding Photos with Jeanah + Brian!

Chicago Winter Wedding Photos!

Chicago in December makes for some fun + creative winter wedding photos! Their wedding ceremony + reception was at the Newberry Library and we took pictures at Old Water Tower on Michigan Avenue + Chicago Cultural Center! We found some holiday lights and a Christmas tree at Water Tower to include in Jeanah + Brian’s wedding pictures! Here’s one of my favorites from their wedding day!

As I’ve mentioned time and time again on this wedding blog…so much of my business comes from referrals…and I am thankful for Alice for referring me! I appreciate it!

We started their day at Salon Blonde on North Avenue for Jeanah’s hair and makeup-

Chicago Cultural Center Wedding Photos!

Since it was a little on the ‘chilly’ side – we headed indoors to the Chicago Cultural Center for some indoor winter wedding photos! I love that this staircase tells you that it’s the winter season by its holiday decorations!
