The Drake Hotel Chicago Wedding

It does not get any more classic than The Drake Hotel for a beautiful winter Chicago wedding! Caitlin and Jordan chose this timeless venue for their big day as well as a Chicago wedding photographer whose style perfectly matched their vision for the wedding. The day started in the Princess Diana suite. My favorite suite in the hotel as it has beautiful light, it is large enough to accommodate a big bridal party and provide ample room for the hair and makeup teams while also keeping the bride's bedroom pristine and tidy for her pictures of getting in the dress, those beautiful, classic window portraits as well as emotional first looks with dad and the bridesmaids.
 
Caitlin wore a stunning Peter Langner wedding dress purchased at Ultimate Bride in downtown Chicago and paired it up with a warm faux fur stole for the chilly outdoor portraits. At the reception, she surprised her groom with a painting of their first dance during their stunning The Drake Hotel Chicago wedding.
