Garfield Park Conservatory wedding with Jennifer and Christopher.
We started the day at Westin on Michigan Ave where both Jennifer and Christopher were getting ready. After getting ready photos we walked across the street to capture first look in Fourth Presbyterian church courtyard. The combination of Gothic architecture and Tudor style designed courtyard makes it a perfect place for romantic first look. When we have couples getting ready close by, we always suggest this location because it is such a great visual contrast to busy city shots.
Our choice for first location was Milton Lee Olive Park. One of the best views of Chicago skyline and beautifully landscaped.
Second location of couple’s choice was Kinzie street bridge for some urban backdrop scenery.
From there we continued to Garfield Park Conservatory where both ceremony and reception took place. The Conservatory is one of the most unique Chicago venues. Large urban oasis with plenty photo opportunities.
It was one of the hottest and steamiest days this summer. We just have to applaud to both Jennifer and Chris and the entire wedding party for being such a great sports and managed to keep the high spirits in spite of the weather. The wedding was gorgeous.
