This week I had the chance to photograph this tropical dream of a wedding that was held in The Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier in Chicago. If anyone has a tropical theme in mind for their wedding, look no further-- THIS location is perfect!! Everywhere you looked there was a palm tree, ivy, or some type of greenery around every corner and there was even water fountains shooting archways over you! It's such a unique venue for being in the middle of Chicago! Haha! The details that pulled everything together were incredible! From the watercolor designed envelope liners, to the linens of the cake table, to the bar cart, and the gorgeous florals- this just SCREAMED tropical! I would definitely have to say the florals were my favorite part! I've never seen such exotic bouquets and they were SO beautiful! I'm such a sucker for pretty flowers! I hope you enjoy these highlights just as much as I do! Be sure to reach out to these amazing vendors and leave them some love!
Definitely a favorite! ^^ Anna and Patrick, you guys are SO cute!!
This does NOT look like we're in Chicago! Haha!
I was obsessed with the linens for the cake table! I love those colors together! And can we talk about this CAKE! YUM! And those paper flowers pulled it all together!
The watercolor escort cards were SO pretty!!
Now THAT'S what you call a grand centerpiece!
And now we have our gorgeous model Willow! Girl, you are stunning!
I think this bouquet was definitely my favorite! ^^ I love all the shades of pink and that it looks like a heart!!
Now here's some shots outside the venue to actually prove that this in fact WAS in Chicago! Haha! I can never get tired of that skyline!
A HUGE thank you to all of the incredibly talented and hardworking wedding professionals who made this tropical dream come to life!
