Rooftop Wedding Photos at The Hotel at Midtown Chicago
Lauren + Jeff are members at Midtown Athletic Club. For those that don’t know, Midtown has been a Chicago tennis club for decades. They recently expanded their facility to include state of the art fitness and athletic training facilities! They also built an amazing modern boutique hotel with a rooftop deck! Lauren + Jeff had the vision and foresight to ask about having their wedding at this new facility! The result: THEY WERE THE FIRST WEDDING AT THE HOTEL AT MIDTOWN CHICAGO!
As a wedding photographer, I love shooting in new venues, and The Hotel at Midtown Chicago is no exception! The view of the Chicago skyline from their rooftop is unreal!
In case you missed it, be sure to check out their Chicago Engagement Photos too!
