ILLINOIS BEACH HOTEL WEDDING: CHICAGO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER: MELISSA MARIE PHOTOGRAPHY: BRYAN + CORRIE
If you're from Illinois and ever wanted to get married on a beach on the coast but want to still have your all your local friends and family still have an easy drive to your big day? This is your place! Illinois Beach Hotel is in the Illinois Beach State Park and is reemerging as a destination with it's absolutely stunning panoramic unobstructed views venue. It had my jaw drop time and time again as the light shifted throughout the day. It's been awhile since I'd been here and the work they're putting into it shows. I also want this to be a WPA (wedding planning announcement) for chair covers. (: If you have chairs that already fit the vibe you're going for, great, but a cover can totally change the feel not only of the chair, but the entire space. I was obsessed with the super clean, smooth white covers on what I'm guessing are otherwise conference chairs here. It gave Bryan + Corrie's wedding a super chic beach club vibe that I kept pinching myself that I was still in Illinois! Their ceremony was literally steps from the beach but with the perk of having a more solid ground for those with heels to walk on. No matter where you sat, stood, were throughout the day, there were endless views of being right on the water. Bryan + Corrie, I absolutely loved capturing your gorgeous Illinois Beach Hotel wedding!
