    We are having our AHR on 3/12/11...about three weeks after our wedding at Moon Palace! We have a photographer coming out for 8 hours to take photos- and doing the bride/groom & bridal party photos at a different location prior to the AHR.  Since it is the middle of March, I'm debating whether I want to risk planning on outdoor locations for photos b/c the chances of good weather aren't that great.


    Does anyone have any beautiful indoor locations in Chicago or North/Northwest suburbs that are nice? We have a couple of hours with the photographer ahead of time so it would be nice if the places had enough versatility to spend an hour or so at each.

      Maybe Union Station? That would look awesome! Or somewhere in the theater district? the Oriental Theater is friggin gorgeous, maybe they'd let you take pics in the lobby? I don't know how feasible these ideas are for your location and timeline for that day.

        The Chicago Botanic Garden has some pretty indoor areas, but they charge $125 fee for taking photos there.  Navy Pier has an indoor garden area and there's that butterfly haven by Lincoln Park Zoo.  Photos at the shedd aquarium might be cool too.  I think outdoor winter photos in Chicago would look amazing... maybe you could plan for some indoor locations as a back-up in case there's a blizzard or something?

          The photos are beautiful! Definitely places to consider! Does the Shedd charge a fee to take photos there?


          Any ideas for places that don't charge a fee?
