It rained on a coworker’s wedding day (just for photos though, hah) and so they made backup plans at a local butterfly exhibit. It was indoor gardens, interesting wall patterns, and butterflies on the bride 🙂
Anything like that in your area?

@HourThyme:  What about that indoor like greenhouse thing at Navy Pier??

And also the weather could def change by next week- we cancelled our engagement pics  2 days before the shoot because it called for 60 % rain ( 2 days before!) …guess what…no rain! Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Maybe go up to Willis Tower/any tall building and get skyline shots?

Here is my guy 🙂

If/*when* it doesnt rain on your wedding day, I would suggest taking pics by the planetarium- My sister got married downtown and we took pics there it has an amazing skyline view 🙂  Congrats and happy wedding week 🙂

We did skyline photos at Olive Park and they look amazing — some of my favorites of all our photos.  I hope you have at least a little dry weather so you can get some outdoor shots! 

It sounds like you have lots of great options for indoors if it rains — Union Station is a terrific venue.  Another idea in case you want some nature is the Lincoln Park Conservatory or Garfield Park Conservatory.  We did our engagement pics at GPC in winter, and they came out really well.  (Technically, you need a photo permit — you can find the application online at the Parks Department website — but they never asked to see ours.)  I’ve also seen nice indoor pics at the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Modern Wing at the Art Institute.  Good luck and enjoy your wedding!

Hi ladies, I got married in Chicago last year and would love to share my pics!  I’m trying to remain somewhat anonymous so none show my face. 0:)  We did our first look on the kinzie bridge (where my husband proposed!).  We did other pictures at Olive Park, in front of the Chicago board of trade, and in the Skydeck at Sears Tower.  We did our engagement pictures on State Street and near the planetarium so I’ll share those too! XO
