The Blackstone Hotel Wedding

Sarah and Jeremy’s classic and elegant wedding took pace at the historic Blackstone Hotel.  The day began with all of the beautiful ladies getting ready together in Sarah’s suite at The Blackstone with the fabulously talented Lux Salon team. 

The couple had their first look at the Rose Garden at The Art Institute of Chicago. It was a beautiful spring day while the wedding party and couple were taking pictures with Christian Sampson Photography , and then the clouds started to roll in.  Just in the knick of time we got Sarah and Jeremy undercover as  the skies opened into a torrential downpour (And you would never know from these gorgeous photos!!).

Their ceremony and reception were in the grand ballroom and was filled with fluffy white blooms floating like perfect clouds above their guests during their black tie affair,  

From start to finish, Sarah and Jeremy’s wedding was perfect in every way!

Congratulations to a beautiful couple, inside and out, Sarah and Jeremy!
