The Library Club | The Rookery Building | Chicago wedding & engagement photographer | Lilian & Steve

Lilian and Steve had the most epic locations for their engagement session. These amazing buildings are usually off limits unless you work there, but thanks to Steve we had spacial access. The first one is  called the  The Library Club.

“Forty floors above the hustle and bustle of the Loop, this 7,000-square-foot former law library has been transformed into the two-story private club known as the Library. The room features a custom-built mahogany bar and several alcoves and is furnished with richly upholstered sofas and leather chairs. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide stunning views of Lake Michigan and the majestic statue of Ceres on top of the Chicago Board of Trade building.”

The other amazing building was The Rookery Building. If you’re looking for a unique venue for a wedding or other event venue, both these amazing locations are highly recommended.

“The Rookery Building is a historic landmark located at 209 South LaSalle Street in the Loop community area of Chicago in Cook County, Illinois, United States. Completed by John Wellborn Root and Daniel Burnham of Burnham and Root in 1888, it is considered one of their masterpiece buildings, and was once the location of their office. The building measures 181ft, is twelve stories tall and is considered the oldest standing high-rise in Chicago. It has a unique style with exterior load-bearing walls and an interior steel frame, which provided a transition between accepted and new building techniques. The lobby was remodeled in 1905 by Frank Lloyd Wright. Beginning in 1989, the lobby was restored to the original Wright design.”
