Wedding [elopement] Downtown Chicago Skydeck | Willis [Sears] Tower | Laura and Kyle


Laura and Kyle have been together for a long time,  and instead of lengthy planning and a big wedding they just decided to elope! The date of February 29th in Chicago was decided 🙂

We did photos around the City before the wedding.

The ceremony was on the Skydeck inside the Willis Tower. This was my first time up there since they had the Skydeck installed…it’s very very cool.

This was such a good idea, instead of traditional flowers they got Hawaiian leis from the Bridal party.

It looks like they’re floating over the City 🙂

From Laura…

“When we decided to get married on 2/29/12 we had about 1 month to plan our perfect wedding. For us that meant a small elopement in Chicago. We were very fortunate that every component of our wedding came into place flawlessly, actually better than imagined.

 

We began looking for a photographer online and were in the process of choosing between three different options when one more internet search found Hilda. Her online portfolio is breathtaking and we felt strongly that she would be the best choice for our event. After a few emails and a phone call Hilda was onboard and we are extraordinarily happy with her work.

 

I was astonished that complete strangers walking by were so quick to congratulate us and wish us well. It was so sweet and just added to the day’s happiness.

 

When we arrived at the Willis Tower we were told that we would be escorted up to the SkyDeck. Being a little preoccupied I didn’t realize that the SkyDeck was actually closed due to high winds! Amazingly the SkyDeck still allowed us access for our ceremony and we had a perfect (and unexpectedly private) wedding. Standing out on a Sky Ledge we were married and took “the leap” on leap year day.

 

Our minister, a personal friend, included Hawaiian Leis and Roses in the ceremony. The ceremony was one of the most heartfelt and meaningful wedding ceremonies I have ever heard and am so blessed and lucky that it was our wedding!

 

We enjoyed every moment of our day and it was a marvelous way to start our married life.”
