The stunning Chicago views at the Crown from the top of the Tribune Tower can’t be beat, and they were certainly spectacular for Jessica and Craig’s wedding earlier this summer! We enjoyed photographing the couple and their wedding party in the heart of downtown only to be followed by a sun-filled ceremony overlooking the city. Here are a few of our favorite moments!

Steve and Vitaliy’s Chicago wedding featured their love for this city and it’s diverse neighborhoods. We started the day at their historic lakefront condo and nearby Montrose Harbor. They held their ceremony and brunch reception at Firehouse Chicago, an original Chicago firehouse turned into a venue. An urban planner and graphic designer, Vitaliy designed beautiful signage and decor throughout the event that had a unique Chicago style. The delicious brunch, provided by Fig Catering, represented food from several Chicago neighborhoods. Background music included classic female jazz singers to reflect a typical Sunday morning for the couple. Pollen Floral also participated in this beautiful wedding. Here are a few favorite shots!
