What always seems to be the busiest engagement season of the year (the holidays through Valentine’s Day) is coming to a close, which means many couples are now planning their weddings. Thinking of tying the knot here in Chicago? Gather inspiration—on everything from photo locations to décor to transportation—from other Windy City weddings on Instagram, starting right here.
Of course, it makes sense that Chicago Fire star Joe Minoso would take a wedding photo in front of a Chicago firehouse—but even if you aren’t a firefighter (or play one on on TV), this still makes for an awesome Chi-town backdrop.
Celebrating Southern Charm at last night’s Open House at Gallery 1028! A sketch brought to life; the stunning canopy design was inspired by the moss-dripping live oaks of the South. And, highlighting the beautiful hardwoods of the space, we crafted a fresh rustic design complimenting the unique features of the Southern Coast.

Why stop at putting flowers on tables and in bouquets, when you can hang them on the ceiling? Kehoe Designs created a stunning canopy out of hanging florals and ropes for this wedding at Gallery 1028.
Doubles partner for life - No matter what obstacles may come their way. Thank you @wilsontennis for providing the balls of fun and @hoosiercutie for coming up with this fun idea for the shoot. #gamesetmatchhealey Photo by Kenny Kim Photography © 2016 - http://www.kennykim.com

The honeycomb arch at Lincoln Park Zoo’s Nature Boardwalk is a stunning backdrop for any Chicago wedding photo, but you can make it extra special by incorporating a whimsical prop (or many props) that represent you as a couple—as evidenced by this joyous shot from Kenny Kim Photography.
Its fair to say we got carried away with the green for this wedding @mcachicago with @marybiller @kirstinleighb from @lolaeventpros but what the heck, greenery it's the color of the year for 2017 and we were 6 months ahead of the trend.

This photo is major think-outside-the-box inspiration, with the lush, green centerpieces (both high and low), delicate hanging candles-in-glass, and the extra-long tables; all in a simple, white room at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

This wedding photo, taken by Carasco Photography inside a quiet Union Station in Chicago, is utterly majestic.
