The Rookery Wedding Chicago- Jane & John

Written by , Posted in Wedding

The Rookery was the perfect location for their around the world bash.

Jane and John planned their wedding all of the way from Australia, across the globe. Jane is originally from Chicagoland, and John is from Ireland. Which, made it pretty perfect to have the most ultimate wedding cake EVER.  Ultimate? Yes.  Just scroll down and you will see the amazingness below. Well, ok- I’ll tell you, Jane’s mom ordered a Globe Shaped wedding cake.  Yes! Imagine a cake shaped like the world.  It had the Bean on top, and fondant designed homes and buildings near and dear to Jane and John’s hearts. Gah, it was amazing!  Along with all of the other details Jane planned for- giant wedding balloons, stopping by an Irish Pub on their wedding day for John, embroidering their wedding date onto her dress, and so much more.

Okay, you can see The Rookery Wedding for yourself. But- to start off, Jane got ready at her parent’s house. They also had their ceremony at Holy Family Chicago – my favorite Cathedral in Chicago, and we happily had the opportunity to photograph many weddings there this year.  Plus, everyone there is super nice, and I’m a fan of super nice. 🙂

Jane’s shoes match the balloons so perfectly.  I love it when brides have a pop of color in their wedding outfits.The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0002 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0003 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0004 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0005 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0006 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0007 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0008 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0009 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0010

So it was a super hot summer day during their ceremony- for which they had the fans blowing inside the church. I’m a fan of Jane’s veil blowing in the breeze down the aisle. <3The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0017 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0018 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0019 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0020 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0021 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0022 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0023 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0024 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0025 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0026 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0027 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0028 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0029 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0030 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0031 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0032 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0033 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0034 The Rookery Chicago Wedding Photographer Editorial Photography Studio Finch Modern_0035

The Rookery is such an amazing historical building. It was designed by Burnhan and Root in 1888, and the lobby was remodeled by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1905- which is all of the amazingness you can see in the photo below.
