Chicago Waldorf Astoria Wedding and Room 1520 Wedding. A beautiful Gold Coast and West Loop affair

Jen and Nick got ready at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel on Walton St. in the Gold Coast Chicago . I got there early as usual and was able to have some fun with the getting ready photos. The love and support between mom and daughter was really special to witness by the way. We did a first look at their bar on the 2nd floor and got lucky with some very dramatic lighting. These guys were having so much fun it really was effortless to get good photos. From there we went to Fourth Presbyterian Church on Michigan Avenue and the Riverwalk by Trump Tower to get some outdoor photos. Finally the whole gang headed over to the Venue. This was my first time at Room 1520 and I have to say it’s a photographers dream. The whole loft is painted white with crystal chandeliers. The floral and table settings were also exquisite. There is a rooftop for cityscape photos but it was raining a bit too hard to pull it off.
