Chicago Harold Washington Library Wedding Photography: Gloria & Andrew


Gloria and Andrew’s black tie wedding at the Chicago Harold Washington Library was simply beautiful.  After a tearful first look at the Chicago Park Hyatt, we ventured to the Chicago Art Institute Gardens for formal portraits of the wedding party.  The ceremony and reception were held in the Winter Garden, the architectural centerpiece of the library, under a gorgeous glass roof that reflected beautiful downtown Chicago.

I asked them both to share some of their own words below.

“In college our lives overlapped in so many ways it’s almost amazing we never met. In fact I spent most of my freshman year hanging out with my friends in the room right next to his. We often talk about how fun it would have been to have met during such a carefree point in our lives but I think the timing was perfect even though it didn’t seem like it at the time.

 We met just as I was graduating college and trying to make what at the time felt like monumental decisions about my life. I wasn’t ready to throw in a relationship on top of it. But it quickly became apparent that being with Andrew was the best decision I made.”

“I can’t speak for what Gloria loves about me but she is so thoughtful and fun!  We seem to have a connection and pretty much always know what each other are thinking.

We have been living together for 2 and a half years and they have been lots of fun.  Both of us are a bit of homebodies and we have really enjoyed ourselves in that time.  That is part of why I ended up proposing at home (with all of our favorite foods and treats from around the city).  We had champagne and sat by the fire outside.  We are really excited to start our next adventure in New York!”

This exquisitely beautiful wedding came to life with each team member listed here, and I am quite thankful for the opportunity to work as a team.  Thank you, Gloria and Andrew, for smiling all day, ignoring the cameras and just focusing on one thing.  Being together.  And thank you for one of the most beautiful Horas I have ever had the pleasure to document!  Please enjoy your Chicago Harold Washington Library wedding photographs.
