Best Luxury Wedding Photos at Loews Chicago Hotel
“Oh. My. God. These are beautiful!! We are obsessed.” – From the bride upon viewing these images! =)
Just two weeks ago these two were married at the Loews Chicago Hotel! The weather was perfect and they were able to take advantage of their rooftop space! These two were so excited during their wedding ceremony, they kissed three times before the official ‘first kiss’! Their rabbi had to slow them down!
Shout out to Marcy + Erica from Great Events Inc for planning and coordinating and to Vince from Kehoe Designs for creating a romantic, elegant, luxury, modern vibe with the beautiful florals and decor! Leah from the Loews Chicago made sure everything went along smoothly! In case you didn’t want to scroll through all 60+ images on this blog post, here are a few of the best ones up first!
The Loews Chicago has mirrored blue windows and it makes for a beautiful background when on the rooftop terrace!
Love this picture – one of the best from the day – so casual, so real and so high end fashion! Feels like a luxury brand advertisement!
There were so many candles for their ceremony and reception…so romantic!
I’m a photographer that brings a little fashion magazine inspiration to my photoshoots. This bridal party photo looks like it belongs in Vanity Fair!

The bridesmaids had a little confetti fun in their tie dyed pjs!
Mother of the bride became an expert at buttoning up a wedding dress-
Love all the expressions in this one photo! Don’t miss the Maid of Honor’s teary eyes (third one on the left)
Proud Father of the Bride, embracing the moment-
She looked stunning!
They guys were having some fun elsewhere in the hotel
Since the ladies had a confetti tossing photos, I thought it was only fitting that the guys tossed….skittles? When the groom loves Skittles and Starbursts, you make sure there is plenty in the getting ready room!
We had their first look on the rooftop, and I love this moment!
Photographer’s Tip: I love the strong lines and symmetry, but I also threw in a reflection for a little visual impact!
Photographer’s Tip: Sometimes you trust your gut. I originally just wanted to have them walking…but then saw a shot through the pendant lights. I love how they frame the bride and groom!
We went outside to take a few pictures in the Chicago streets! We found the most perfect spot with a little bit of an elevation change so you can see the street behind them! Chicago is flat city, this may be one of the few ‘hills’ downtown!
I’m a wedding photographer that is always looking for great ‘light’ – I love how we found a pocket of light in this plaza that brings a lot of depth to this image!
The pigeons who always pick food off other people’s plates! Can’t believe we caught this moment!
We returned to the rooftop for a few more bridal party photos!

Beautiful decor by Kehoe Designs.
The ghost chairs, the candles, the elegance!
To end the night, we returned to the rooftop for a few quick photos with the cityscape!
And we end the night with one of best shots of the day! A kissing dip on top of the Loews!
Congrats again you two! There are so many more to share, but I hope you enjoyed these highlights from your day!
