Who knew there was a tropical paradise right in the middle of downtown Chicago?! The Crystal Gardens out on The Navy Pier blew me away when we walked in. Tall glass ceiling, huge palm trees, right on the river - this was a perfect location! We embraced the tropical feel and added in pops of oranges, yellows & reds to create this stunning wedding inspirational shoot. What do you think? Would you get married here? I would in a heartbeat!
