Iconic Chicago Drake Hotel Wedding by Ed & Aileen Photography

This Chicago wedding at The Drake Hotel is nothing short of iconic. Photographed by Ed & Aileen Photography, the images capture the timeless look of the day beautifully. The bride is styled with hints of vintage inspired romance, glamour and elegance. We love her chignon hairstyle by Amy Banas, her red lip color, and the incredible beading on the bodice of her gown. She is the picture of a timeless black tie bride from head to toe! Her well groomed groom dons a navy tuxedo with contrasting black lapels, making his look a wonderful compliment to the bride’s own style. The groomsmen follow his lead in blue suits of their own, and gold sequin bridesmaid gowns add a touch of glamour to the bridal party. Timeless imagery tells the story of the couple’s wedding ceremony at Chicago’s stunning Bond Chapel, while the reception sparkles with gold and navy details like sequined gold table runners sitting atop rich, navy linens. Their reception is a grand affair, full of details beautifully put-together, befit an iconic black tie wedding. Enjoy!

What We’re Loving: Moments in the Bridal Suite

We love imagery captured in the bridal suite! These first moments of the day contain an array of emotions. We love to see a bridal party helping to put the finishing touches the bride’s wedding day style, emotional reactions to the bride’s finished look, and all the smiles that light up the space throughout that time together. Images like this one remind us of deep friendship and timeless moments.

Grand Indianapolis Black Tie Wedding at the Crowne Plaza by Tara Nicole Events

We’re swooning over this Indianapolis black tie wedding from Tara Nicole Weddings and Events. Photographed by The Siners, every image captures the grand, elegant feeling of the day beautifully. We adore the bride’s Morilee by Madeline Gardner gown. The beaded bodice and full skirt create a timeless bridal look that’s perfectly fitting with the grand feeling of the wedding day. Scottish Rite Cathedral was the perfect setting for this couple’s romantic ceremony, followed by the equally grand Crowne Plaza Union Station for the reception. Stunning topiary arrangements by Royal Creations are used as centerpieces for the tables, perfectly complimenting the grand ballroom. Our favorite detail in this wedding, though, is the incredible wedding cake by Heavenly Sweets! The floral detailing provides texture and a truly romantic look to the cake design. This is one black tie wedding we won’t soon forget! Enjoy!
