WHERE: Inside of the Rookery Building (209 S LaSalle)
WHY: It’s more exclusive. The only way you can take photos here is if you have your wedding at the Rookery (which we think is a pretty sweet deal). In fact, many of our Rookery clients have actually booked the space because of this shot.

5. The Bridge at the Lincoln Park Zoo
WHERE: Lincoln Park Zoo / Cafe Brauer
WHY: It’s the perfect combo of city & “neighborhood” vibe. Many of our clients choose this spot because you still get the skyline in the background, but you also get greenery.
