Winter Wedding Photos in the Chicago Snow
My last and final winter wedding of the year! Chicago has been hit hard with a ridiculous amount of snow and subzero temperatures this past year! I’m excited to share this last set of winter wedding photos with you! Thanks to Christine from Tying the Knot for another great job of wedding coordinating! Beautiful wedding bouquets and centerpieces from Vale of Enna!
Here are two of my favorite photos from their wedding! I love the snow on the ground and the holiday lights in the background!
The church for their wedding ceremony was gorgeous…almost too easy for this wedding photographer! I had to put them in the balcony for this photo!
The Peninsula Chicago Getting Ready Photos
The bride started the day at the luxurious Peninsula Chicago! I hung up her beautiful wedding dress and put her wedding shoes on the window ledge! Such a great view of Chicago from her suite!
Her wedding ring picture!
Lots of laughs as the bride slipped on her wedding shoes!
We headed downstairs to take some photos around the Peninsula – gorgeous bouquets by Vale of Enna
A few portraits of the beautiful bride!

Chicago Church Wedding Ceremony
The winter Chicago snow streaking down as you enter the church – as a wedding photographer, I try to tell the story of the wedding day through my photos!

Winter Wedding Photos in the Snow
The sun sets so much earlier in Chicago during the winter! I thought to take advantage of our situation by finding some winter lights to help with our photos! I’ve already had people tell me how wonderful and lovely these winter photos turned out!

We headed back to the Peninsula for a couple photos before heading to Spiaggia for their wedding reception
We had to take a photo with one of the Peninsula Lion statutes!
Spiaggia Wedding Reception Photos
Spiaggia is one of Chicago’s top Italian restaurants, and they have a private dining area for weddings and other events! The guests were treated to this wonderful floral arrangement by Vale of Enna as they entered the Spiaggia cocktail reception.

Thanks for having me as your wedding photographer and thank you for going outside in the Chicago snow for those winter photos! May the Lord continue to bless your marriage and lead you both as you enter this new season of life!
