Chicago Wedding Photography – Holly & J.J. at The Drake Hotel

Well this was my first time to shoot a wedding in Chicago and it was such an incredible place to shoot! Holly & JJ knew exactly what they wanted their wedding to look like and thats why they chose The Princess Diana Suite in The Drake Hotel. They wanted to see each other before the wedding so that we’d have plenty of time to get some really cool shots around the hotel. Another thing that they did..and I had never seen this before was to have a laptop set up at their ceremony. They did this because their grandmother wasn’t able to attend the wedding and she was able to watch the ceremony via skype! How amazing is that!? It was so great to see Holly modeling her wedding dress for her grandmother and showing her their new wedding rings, shoes, and flowers! The grandmother was absolutely glowing with delight! Isn’t technology amazing?! Well, I hope you guys enjoy these Chicago wedding images!
