Downtown Chicago Wedding at The Rookery
Written and photographed by Mikkel of Mikkel Paige Photography:
Shawn and Mike were Chicago transplants! When they got engaged they knew downtown Chicago would be the right place for them to get married! They chose the historic venue, The Rookery, and opted to allot a good amount of time for the entire wedding party to head to the waterfront with their photographer to capture very urban, Chicago photos.
Mike wore very unique heirloom opal cufflinks. They perfectly complimented his groomsmen's fine polka-dotted mint green ties which also complimented the bridesmaids mint green dresses.
After a ceremony on the staircase of The Rookery, cocktail hour took place on the second level as they flipped the bottom area into a romantic, candlelight filled space!
