The Blackstone Hotel is an iconic location for a wedding in the city of Chicago. Like a time capsule of Chicago, the architecture and interiors are rooted in Chicago’s legendary past. With a number of bridal suites to choose from, the modern amenities offer a luxury bridal experience for your most special day.
Sally and Brian’s classic Chicago wedding on July 10, 2021 was picture perfect! A rainy summer day wedding is no problem at all if your wedding is at The Blackstone Hotel in Chicago! The day began with Sally and the bridesmaids getting ready in the Smoke Filled Bridal Suite. Later, Sally and Brian shared their first look as bride and groom on the grand staircase followed by portraits with the bridal party just outside the golden doors of the South entrance of the Blackstone.
The ceremony in the Crystal Ballroom is a gorgeous and bright aesthetic that complimented Sally’s vision of blush, ivory, and gold tones for this classic Chicago wedding. The space was flipped after the ceremony to the reception space while guests enjoyed cocktail hour. Meanwhile, the bride and groom utilized some of the unique spaces throughout The Blackstone Hotel, such as the Art Hall and the English Room, for more romantic portraits as husband and wife.
Sally and Brian’s wedding day was nothing short of stunning. These two dance lovers blew their guests away with a breathtaking choreographed first dance to “You are the Reason” by Calum Scott, which the bride choreographed herself! Congratulations to the newlyweds Mr. and Mrs. Ruiz! It was an honor to capture your day!
