FEATURED CHICAGO WEDDING VENUE
Sofitel Hotel Chicago Water Tower
Sofitel Hotel Chicago Water Tower is a modern hotel and a perfect option for the couple searching for a contemporary downtown Chicago wedding venue. We love the abundance of glass throughout the spacious modern Chicago hotel, making nearly each and every room naturally bright. The Sofitel’s spacious grand foyer offers an open and airy ambiance, with an abundance of natural light, stylish aqua blue glass stairs, double staircase, and architectural clean lines. Stylish weddings in the Grand Ballroom of the Sofitel are easy with its beautiful architecture and plush interior design, making for a perfect foundation to start from allowing decisions for complementing floral and decor elements made easy. Complimentary to the ideal modern look is its fabulous downtown Chicago Gold Coast location at Rush and Chestnut which is convenient for guests spending the weekend in Chicago and convenient for picture locations away from the hotel. Miller + Miller has photographed numerous couples and wedding photos inside the Sofitel. ♥ Below is a collection of photographs highlighting those visits and wedding photography at the modern Sofitel Chicago Water Tower hotel.
For Charlie + Dawn’s day, all of the wedding events took place at the Sofitel. When the hot & humid Chicago May wedding day arrived, Dawn decided to simplify her plans and complete all the photos inside of the Sofitel. After checking with the hotel ensuring her photography was allowed, she decided the Sofitel has so many great modern spaces from the grand ballroom, glass staircase, and the modern lobby, to options in the Le bar and hotel restaurant lounges. Ultimately, the four of us loved the idea of capturing all the day’s photos within the one building.
The Sofitel Hotel’s Grand Ballroom is a dynamic event space that can be transformed from a an elegant ceremony setting into a modern evening reception room. The ballroom features a sloped ceiling with floor-to ceiling windows and the tall, gently curving windows offer views of the Water Tower Place, the John Hancock Building and surrounding Gold Coast Historic District downtown Chicago neighborhood.
