Chicago Rooftop Romance Styled Inspiration Shoot

This styled wedding shoot was inspired by the old Hollywood glam of the Arc dorm building at Columbia College Chicago where Alex and Joe met. Keep scrolling for gorgeous florals, incredible architecture, and stunning rooftop views!


A lavender and deep purple color palette complimented the cool tones of the Chicago skyline, while the vintage hair and pop of a classic red lip completed the couples look. The couple went on a romantic whirlwind tour of the city that brought them to some of their favorite spots to steal away for an intimate moment.


Photographer Stephanie Wood says: “I grew up 2 hours from downtown Chicago and visited the area frequently for weekend trips with my family. We would stay at a hotel near Grant Park and head to Navy Pier or the Taste of Chicago in the summer. The city holds fond memories for me and I love getting to photograph it as a backdrop for couples because to me it just oozes romance. This shoot may be styled, but the story behind the shoot is 100% real.”
