What’s not to adore when a wedding is so undeniably chic that even the most well-versed suddenly has a loss for words? Such is the case with Nicolette and Benjamin’s sophisticated soirée in Chicago’s ultra-chic Blackstone Renaissance hotel. Everything from a Vera Wang gown to obsess over to toasts with the brides besties all topped off with ridiculously stunning photography from Kristin La Voie Photography – it’s the makings of a stylish love-fest that will certainly last all day and night.
Words from the photographer, Kristin La Voie -
“Nicolette and Ben planned the most elegant Chicago affair, held at the exquisite Blackstone Renaissance hotel in downtown Chicago. Their penthouse suite getting ready was sheer perfection, letting in all sorts of gorgeous light. The guys relaxed and played pool in the lobby before Nicole and Ben saw each other for their first look. Grant Park served as an excellent photo location for the two lovebirds, amongst the tall trees and perfectly green grass. The romantic, dimly lit ceremony took place in Blackstone’s magnificent Crystal ballroom. Candles lit the aisle as Nicolette walked down to greet her husband-to-be. Afterwards, the reception immediately followed in the transformed ballroom.”
