This was the first time I photographed a W Lakeshore Hotel wedding and it was a real treat. Planning from the east coast outside of New York City, Ben and Shannon wanted a Chicago wedding that everyone would surely remember! They had their Catholic wedding ceremony at Assumption Catholic Church and their wedding reception was thirty three floors above Lake Michigan at the W Chicago Lakeshore Hotel’s Altitude Ballroom. it was a real treat. That view is quiet a treat when you have guests coming in from out of town. I was honored to be their wedding photographer. This funky Chicago wedding is definitely a standout even amongst modern styled weddings. With it’s fresh, bold hues and unique creative touches it’s hard not to take notice of this perfect soiree. If you are looking for a modern venue, the W Chicago Lakeshore Hotel would be a place to check out for your wedding.

W Chicago Lakeshore Hotel wedding
Now here’s where it gets hip! Ben and Shannon went totally non-traditional for the look of their W Chicago Lakeshore Hotel wedding reception. Their colors were navy blue, celery green and hot pink. Totally funky right? I think in the round shaped Altitude Ballroom with panoramic views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline, this made for a fun, upbeat reception. The guests LOVED it!
