Colleen and Steve’s wedding was full of glamour, beauty and lots of partying at the iconic Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel.
It seems like it was just yesterday when we meet this fun couple at our studio, Colleen a tall beautiful blonde and Steve with a smile from ear to ear. They were one of those couples that radiated their happiness.
I remember when they said that it was important to them that we document their love and the huge party they were planning for their guests. After seeing their pictures, I’m pretty sure their mission was accomplished.
On the day of the wedding, Colleen illuminated the room with her beauty and happiness. Her bridesmaids didn’t fall short either as they also looked gorgeous, especially in their robes that Colleen gave them as a gift. Meanwhile, Steve and his groomsmen were just realizing that the big day had arrived and they needed to get dressed and going.
Their first look and post wedding photos were originally planned to be around Chicago, but sometimes Mother Nature makes you go to Plan B, which was the case with the rain that started falling around downtown. Fortunately The Knickerbocker, a 1970’s Playboy Hotel, is full of history; the rooms from wall to wall are full of art. So as you can imagine, this made for some excellent and one of a kind pictures.
In the end Colleen and Steve sure did make their guests dance the night away and enjoy every second just as they dreamed.
