Ashley & Michael’s classic ballroom wedding took place at The Drake Hotel in Chicago last spring.
White draping decorated the backdrop of this classic ballroom wedding ceremony. Sleek white pedestals topped with floral arrangements and candles lined the ceremony aisle. Gold luxury linens topped the reception tables for this classic ballroom wedding.
From the photographer: Ashley and Mike were the sweetest and most joy-filled couple. They had such a unique wedding, while keeping it elegant and classic at the same time. They were married in downtown Chicago at the Drake Hotel, and we took portraits downtown at the Wriggly Building and the Rookery. Mike cried BOTH during the first look AND while Ashley walked down the aisle. So sweet! Something super cool that they did, was they had two different ceremonies. They had a traditional military ceremony as well as a traditional Korean ceremony (called a Pyebaek). The groom wore three different outfits: his formal army uniform, his traditional Korean clothing, and a suit. The bride wore her dress as well as the traditional Korean clothing.
