Chicago Luxury Wedding Photography
It was a wonderful day for Stephanie + De’s Luxury wedding in Chicago! Before we get into the details of their wedding at the Chicago Langham, here is one of my favorite photos from their day with the Chicago skyline!
The wedding day was spent at the Langham Chicago – I love their modern decor and the luxury vibe! Not to mention the wonderful + helpful staff! We took some Chicago Skyline photos at Olive Park before heading to Lincoln Park for their outdoor wedding ceremony! The gorgeous wedding flowers were handled by Sarah from Vale of Enna + the day was coordinated by Linda from Liven It Up Events! Videography & DJ responsibilities were handled by the great folks over at Fig Media– Thanks to Tom for being my second photographer!
Here’s her stunning Manolo Blahnik wedding shoes – ummm…wow!
Letterpress stationary with pearl beads on the cover!
I thought to incorporate their wedding rings into their wedding invitation! I’m always looking for something creative and new as a wedding photographer!

Looking out the Langham window…the bridesmaid dress are the perfect color and the detail on the back is perfect!
This silhouette photograph is perfect in black and white…the clean lines of the Langham help with the creative composition
The beautiful bride!
I combined the two elements from the previous photos for this creative picture…a silhouette and a reflection in her Langham suite! I feel like my experience as a wedding photographer really aids in creating these multilayer wedding photographs-
The perfect amount of light coming in the Langham window as you see Wabash Avenue below – almost like magazine ad!

Great capture by my second photographer, Tom
We headed downstairs to take some photos in the Langham Chicago lobby! As a wedding photographer, I love to be creative with my bridal party photos!

Had to take one with just the bride and groom!
Incorporating the gold drapery in the Langham into this bridal party photograph – and you can see the Marina City tower in the background!

We walked over the Chicago river to take some wedding photos on top of a classic Chicago bridge! I incorporated the Langham in the background of this bridesmaid photo!
The groomsmen in black and white-
I love the juxtaposition of nature vs urban in this wedding photo right next to the Chicago river – it showcases our famous Chicago architecture!
I went in tight to frame Stephanie + De with the tree branch- I love her smile!
The setting sun added that creative element for this photo in front of the Marina City Towers-
Olive Park Chicago Skyline Wedding Photography
We headed to Olive Park for a photo with the Chicago Skyline- Stephanie was getting a little tired…so De was sure to help her out!
The Chicago skyline! Olive Park is so close to the city…the buildings feel like they are right on top of you!
A cute moment dancing at Olive Park!
Lincoln Park Wedding Ceremony Photos
Their ceremony was in the heart of Lincoln Park…right in front of the conservatory-
Lincoln Park was such a serene place for a wedding ceremony! An urban oasis –
The groomsmen were a little happy for De after the wedding ceremony!
So yea…their getaway car was a Ferrari!
Making sure not to cover up that Ferrari logo!
Stephanie had a boy & girl “Stitch” plush animals in wedding outfits to ride with them in the Ferrari- I love how this photo showcases a little bit of their personalities…the Ferrari & the Stitch stuffed animals-
Langham Chicago Wedding Reception Photography
We had to take a photo with the Langham lights!
The Langham is luxury all around – one last photo before we go up for the wedding reception!

What would be more perfect for Stephanie & De than a Hello Kitty wedding cake! Elysia Root Cakes did a wonderful job!
First dance photo in the Langham Ballroom-
The toasts by Stephanie + De’s closest friends-
I think Stephanie was surprised to see De getting a little emotional – powerful words were shared by his best friend-
One last photo of the bride and groom on their wedding night!
Thanks Stephanie + De for having me as your wedding photographer! Great choice in venues with the Langham Chicago + Lincoln Park! We captured the Chicago Skyline & Bridges too! Fabulous team of vendors with Liven It Up Events, Vale of Enna, Elysia Root Cakes and Fig Media!
