Harold Washington Library Chicago Wedding | Elle & Tom

May 26, 2020

Elle and Tom’s winter wedding was such a dream. These two didn’t want to do a first look, so we spent the morning and early afternoon making sure they didn’t see each other while taking portraits near Millennium Park. Elle and her girls were all laughs as they sprayed champagne, popped confetti, and were cheered on by the tourists at the Bean. Meanwhile, Tom and his boys (they are on a beer hockey league together!) ice skated at the Ribbon at Maggie Daley Park before doing portraits nearby.

These two held their ceremony in the beautiful Saint James Chapel, and after bring pronounced husband and wife, we all made our way to Adler Planetarium for a gorgeous skyline view. Elle and Tom’s wedding party were seriously so much fun! The cold temps couldn’t stop them from having the best time ever. After portraits, we headed to Harold Washington Library for their reception in the Winter Garden where everyone celebrated and danced the night away. What a perfect way to celebrate two incredible people.

Here are some of our favorites of Elle and Tom’s Harold Washington Library Chicago wedding!

Shoutout to Elle’s amazing maid of honor for wiping down the ceiling!! LOL!

Aileen (standing on a table): “EVERYONE!! GET IN FOR A GROUP PHOTO!” We love how everyone at The Bean was cheering for Elle.
Right before their first kiss, Elle and Tom made sure they were centered in the aisle and checked in with us to confirm. Made for such a cute moment.
Look at that perfectly centered first kiss!! YESSSSSSS!
When your groomsmen try to make you laugh during a romantic portrait… hahaha!

We absolutely adore this sweet moment in the stacks at Harold Washington Library before Elle and Tom were introduced into their reception.
