Glamorous Wedding at Historic Rookery Building


Chelsie & Michael
The Rookery, Chicago, IL

I had the pleasure of returning to this historic beauty for Chelsie and Michael’s wedding day last July. The Rookery is one of the most iconic buildings in Chicago and it’s always a complete honor photographing this Frank Llyod Wright masterpiece. Chelsie and Michael’s wedding day was stunning from start to finish. Their style was elegant and sophisticated with a nod to Gatsby. Guests gathered in the Light Court as Chelsie’s aunt led a touching wedding ceremony. After being announced husband and wife, we took photos with family and wedding party right outside in front of Chicago’s Board of Trade. As the Light Court transformed into their dinner setting, guests mingled with cocktails and live music, toasting to the newlyweds. The evening was made complete with heartwarming toasts, champagne and a whole lot of dancing. Chelsie and Michael, I loved working with you! Congrats again. I can’t wait to get started on your wedding album.

Chelsie’s pup, Lady, joined for the getting ready festivities at the hotel.
