Intimate Chicago Wedding with Stunning City Views

The city views that surround this ceremony are spectacular! Photographed by Emilia Jane, Sabrina and Kris were married last September in an intimate ceremony on a rooftop in Chicago, Illinois. With a small gathering of their closest family and friends, the couple had a truly unique wedding that fit their personalities. Sabrina had even decided not to have flowers, but her bridesmaids convinced her to purchase a simple, white bouquet form Chicago’s French Market. This wedding focuses on Sabrina and Kris’ love, their family and friends, and food!

A few words from the bride:

We are the cliche couple that have been engaged for 2+ years and have tried to plan our wedding 3 times but life got in the way. We met in Tampa, FL over 5 years ago and knew early on that something was different with our relationship and that we wanted to spend our lives together. We moved to Chicago about a year ago when my husband-to-be got a great job opportunity. After things here settled down a bit and I found work in Chicago-metro we decided to plan the wedding yet again. We knew we wanted something small, simple and intimate. We had a total of 23 guests (including our photographer) at our wedding – only close famly and friends. We both knew that we wanted to have the wedding in downtown Chicago with views of a city since the typical wedding in Florida is on the beach, a hotel, banquet hall. We didn’t want the typical wedding and being foodies we also knew that we wanted to have great food. We chose Zed 451 on Clark and Superior because they were extremely easy to work with, and the menu was outstanding. We didn’t want a DJ, dance-floor, or anything else you would find at your typical wedding. Just great friends, food and atmosphere. Our ceremony was held at 4:00 on a Saturday, and our guests typical comments were that we couldn’t have ordered better weather, the food was outstanding, and the atmosphere was relaxed and intimate.

  1. Hello~
    Your venue is beautiful & I’d like some information regarding a wedding date of 7-4-2015. My fiance is returning home in May from 10 loyal years of service as a Sargent in the Army and we are excited to get married on 4th of July, our favorite holiday. We want a rooftop where we can have the ceremony & an indoor venue for the reception. 2-in-1. We’re planning a small, intimate wedding that can express our style and vision & we love the log/cabin/wooden look on your rooftop. It’s beautiful!
    I’d like some information regarding the availability of our date & options we may have for the ceremony/reception. I look forward to hearing from someone.
    Thank you so much!
