Best Wedding Photos at The Gwen Hotel + Chicago Union Station

When the groom is an architect and the bride loves fashion…you get some pretty amazing pictures! We made sure to include the best details into their wedding photos…from the luxury interior at The Gwen Hotel to the bride’s three pairs of heels!

Shout out to Vasso from The Gwen Chicago who is one of the best in our industry! The staff at the Gwen blew me away with their attentiveness!
