I think the buildings in the Financial District on LaSalle are gorgeous.  And also the bridge over the river on Kinzie is really popular but is a great view too.  But don’t dismiss Mill Park as there are some hidden gems in there, besides the Bean!

Make sure you have a rain plan too, just in case! It poured on our wedding day, so we ended up doing portraits in Union Station (and considered the Rookery as another rain alternative).

Lincoln Park Zoo has some great water/foresty areas.  I’m a fan of more industrial backdrops, so loading docks and grafitti underpasses could be really cool, too.  Oh- and the gardens by the Art Institute are lovely.  Question for you! I’ve been looking at trolley rental and they seem to be pretty expensive- do you think you found a good deal or did you just bite the bullet and pony up what they wanted?

@Pree: I am pretty sure Union Station requires a permit…if memory serves me, I think it’s around $200.
