Radisson Blu Wedding Photos // Stefanie + Casey

Radisson Blu Chicago Wedding Photos

Two weeks ago, at the Chicago Radisson Blu Hotel, Stefanie married her best friend Casey! They danced the night away with one of Chicago’s best bands, The Gold Coast All-Stars! Among the many highlights…the way her father reacted when he saw her, five grandparents in attendance, and the gorgeous decor designed by Natalie from HMR Designs!

Shout out to Jan Ehrenberg from Parties, Events, and More for planning and coordinating their special day! She assembled some of the best wedding professionals in Chicago! In case you missed it, be sure to check out three additional photos (not featured here) at Stefanie + Casey’s Radisson Blu Wedding Teaser Photos Blog Post!

With wedding parties, I always like to create Vanity Fair Inspired pictures – like this one! The uplighting perfectly matched the bridesmaid dresses and flowers!
