Kim & Adam's Blackstone Hotel Wedding - Pt 1

Another snow day in Chicago!! So today we'd like to share photos from Kim and Adam's August 2013 weddings to bring you hopes of summer in Chicago... The night before their wedding, there was a huge, torrential thunderstorm, but the day of their wedding was beautiful... full of fun, happiness, and love! They chose the beautiful Blackstone Hotel for their ceremony and reception, and Deonna Caruso Photography captured every minute of their day. Kim wanted bright, bold jewel tones to contrast with the muted white/grey backdrop of the ballroom. Wonderful florist, Flor del Monte, fulfilled Kim's color dreams with florals in bright tones of pinks, magentas, shades of purple, and accents of cobalt blue.

Since the Blackstone is only two blocks from Grant Park, some photos at Buckingham Fountain were in order! Along with some bridal party photos at the nearby Tiffany Garden, adjacent to the fountain.
