Caroline & Scott :: Rockwell on the River Wedding

This Rockwell on the River wedding is a beauty! There is a new venue in the city and we had the honor of photographing the very first wedding they hosted. From the stunning rich colors the bride chose for her big day to the Rockefeller Chapel ceremony fit for a royal couple! And considering their wedding date was May 19th, 2018, this coincidence could not be more fun! Ready for cocktails on the river? Please allow us to show you around.

I absolutely adore Rockefeller Chapel and the entire University of Chicago campus. Beautiful architecture, ivy, trees, flowers, even a bridge! What more could one ask for?

First wedding ever celebrated at Rockwell on the River was so much fun! Caroline & Scott decided to have a cocktail style reception with passed hors d’oeuvres and delicious food stations with delicacies from all the corners of the world. There was no assigned seating and lots of lounge furniture in addition to traditional tables and chairs for everyone to sit and enjoy their dinner while also being able to mingle and experience the beautiful space, including the patio outside by the river.

The evening ended with our signature champagne spray where we popped a bottle of bubbly we gifted the couple and celebrated both their big day as well as this beautiful new wedding venue in Chicago. How exciting to photograph the very first Rockwell on the River wedding? Did I mention how much I love this warm amber uplighting by the entrance? It made for the champagne drops to look like gold!
