Ivy Room Wedding

Claire and Corey’s wedding at the Ivy Room in Chicago was the perfect summertime affair. The Ivy Room is a garden oasis in the middle of the heart of Chicago’s River North neighborhood. The indoor/outdoor space gives couples an opportunity to treat their guests to a garden courtyard cocktail hour before heading indoors to the stylish recently-updated interior dining room.

We LOVE photographing the morning of the wedding day at the Peninsula Hotel. It’s the best hotel in Chicago with the best service and the most beautiful rooms. They recently redid their suites and they are just stunning. The Pen is consistently ranked on Conde Nast’s Gold List of top hotels in the world.
Instax mini polaroid cameras are some of the best bridesmaids gifts. Hopefully you’ll get some mini instant photos from the perspectives of your closest friends on your wedding day, but it’s not a gift that is to be used only one day. These affordable cameras will be such a fun present your girls will enjoy long after the wedding day!

Champagne-colored bridal gowns photograph so beautifully. The charmeuse shell on Claire’s gown with the embroidered lace overlay has such beautiful texture. She dressed her bridesmaids in dove gray which is a beautifully complementary color to the champagne wedding gown.
Another thing we love about the Peninsula Chicago is the light and decor in the rooms. It’s simply exquisite and really provides ideal environment for great getting ready photos.

This couple opted to not do a first look so we had a very brief amount of time to make some beautiful portraits between the ceremony at St Vincent de Paul and the beginning of cocktail hour in the Ivy Room courtyard. We hurried over to the venue with the bride and groom in a vintage Rolls Royce and had a fun few minutes photographing the two of them in the afterglow of the wedding ceremony. These two are so sweet and their love for each other really shows through in these portraits!

Love this classy heritage photo shelf that the couple set in the entrance to the venue. Vintage photographs of their family through the generations greeted their guests as they arrived at the Ivy Room.
