A few weeks ago we were so honored and excited to capture the special memories for Angela and Chris's Chicago hotel wedding at the International Trump Hotel! Angela and Chris is such a inspirational couple that is very selfless. A few months ago we photographed their engagement session in Chicago at the Lincoln Park Farmers Market and that is when we learned that they are extremely eco-friendly! We discovered so much more about them durring their reception about their love to give back to the community.
Their Chicago Hotel Wedding started in the morning where both Angela and Chris were getting ready at the Trump Tower wedding suites. In Angela's room she had about 6 different choice of waters that were provided by Trump Hotel and they all had bridal themes.
We really love to witness first looks and it was perfect because the day before their wedding they had a very private and intimate ceremony with a few friends and close family- so they choose to have a first look. The first look was supposed to take place on a beautiful outside balcony on the 16th floor which overlooks the skyline-but it started to pour as we were waiting for Angela to come out. There were some quick improvisations done and they had a fun spontaneous indoor first look. Another cool note to mention is that Angela had 3 dresses to wear on her wedding day. 1. Wedding Gown 2. Red tight cocktail dress 3. Beautiful silk dress made by her great aunt from China.
To add onto their eco-friendly note- Angela and Chris had Toms shoes waiting for their bridal party at the reception which was on the 16th floor of the Trump Hotel called Skyline Lounge. Each pair of Tom's had a custom painted design that was something meaningful to them. Chris had the math pie sign painted on and Angela had a cherry blossom tree painted on.
We really enjoyed their wedding and it was amazing to see their personalities shinning through! They are such a kind hearted and humble couple and it was so nice to witness their friends and family value that. Below are our favorite photos from this beautiful Chicago hotel wedding at the Trump Hotel:)
