Katie + Nick’s World of Whirlpool Wedding
Katie + Nick met by chance on a fun karaoke night out with friends. Whether it was Katie’s amazing performance or her beautiful smile that lured Nick in, the sparks flew from that moment on. Katie is a Parisian at heart. She studied abroad in Paris during college and now uses her love of the french language to teach French. Where else would they go on their honeymoon? Paris, of course! Très bien!
Good friends officiated the ceremony which always makes the ceremony more intimate and also more memorable.
Katie + Nick planned their World of Whirlpool wedding at the very unique venue high above the Chicago river. The venue has an amazing rooftop deck overlooking the river. They planned to have their ceremony outside on the rooftop, but mother nature had other plans, so the ceremony had to be moved indoors. We were able to go outside for some photos during a brief timeout from the drizzling rain. Isn’t Chicago weather crazy, though, because during our break from the rain, the bright sun came out for a few minutes just for our photos.
The World of Whirlpool is a new event space in Chicago. It’s the corporate headquarters for Whirlpool. The space consists of working kitchens around the whole floor. The kitchens were used as different food stations for the guests. There was a veggie station, a carving station, seafood and of course the desert bar! Guests were able to mingle on the rooftop deck and take in the beautiful lights along the river. The same night, there was a helicopter doing a loop of the Chicago river, flying very low. I found out later they were filming one of the Marvels movies and getting footage of the Chicago river for the movie.
