Ready for a gorgeous downtown wedding? Zain and Jim got married at the Crystal Ballroom which is inside the Knickerbocker Hotel, located right off of Michigan Avenue. The venue has that classic Chicago sophistication and provided the perfect atmosphere for the couple’s ceremony and reception. The wedding was on one of the recent very hot and humid Saturdays. Rather than exhausting ourselves outside, we shot inside the Museum of Contemporary Art and used the modern space and color for a great set of photos with Zain, Jim, and the bridal party. The ballroom looked beautiful when we arrived not long before the ceremony commenced. The room was then switched over for an elegant reception. A reception which included elements of Zain’s Syrian culture – lots of dancing and cutting the cake with a sword! This wedding one was a tough one to consolidate into a post because there were so many great moments. Congratulations to Zain and Jim!
