After leaving Edmonton, Canada, we put on some serious miles, and made it east to “The Windy City” – Chicago! There, we were greeted by Michelle Jacob, the Catering Sales Manager of the the Five-Star, Five-Diamond Trump International Hotel and Tower. Right away, we could see the care and dedication Michelle puts into her weddings. It’s clear that she’s there every step of the way, ensuring that every wedding is perfect.
If you are wanting a luxurious destination wedding, the Tower is definitely the place to be. Located along the Chicago River, the hotel has become part of the iconic city skyline, and definitely stands out among the other surrounding buildings.
The Terrace at the Trump is a breathtaking location to hold your cocktail hour, with primetime views of the Wrigley Clock Tower, Lake Michigan and the Chicago River.
The hotel has plenty of space to accommodate the bride and groom, as well as the whole wedding party! The property’s 339 rooms are all luxuriously appointed, with beautiful views and deluxe amenities.
As you’ll see on the left, below, our puppy True insisted on trying the high thread count that the Trump beds offer. Ok… so this one was really shot at our hotel down the road :) But we learned that the Trump Hotel does welcome pets. It even has an extensive pet care program, complete with an in-room dining menu!
The Grand Ballroom is the spot to have your formal wedding reception! While at the Tower, we photographed the details of a wedding happening that evening. Our favorite features to photograph included the 180-degree views of the downtown landscape, as well as the dramatic pendant lampshades. As you can see below, the resulting images really show off the sleek curved walls and 24-foot windows.
We looked out of one of the ballroom windows, and the view to the river below is pretty amazing. The yacht sailing by really completes the shot!
The unique aspects of The Trump Hotel and Tower just keep going on and on :) There are so many interesting angles to capture! It truly does stand out and above the rest.
Goodbye for now Chicago! It’s been fun :) P.S. Try to find us in the famous Chicago “Bean”.
